Ditto on the Tamiya thinner, it's da sh*t. FWIW I usually thin it about 1:2 (paint:thinner).

Guess I`ll bite the bullet and buy the Tam thinner for the gloss finishes. Does it come in gallon jugs.......

Don't think so, but the large jug (about a pint I guess?) lasts a good long time if you just using it for thinning paint -- save the cheap stuff for cleanup.

Hi friends,

yesterday I had some daillight photo shooting of my finished Fokker. In the next days I will be busy in creating a base and adding one pilot's figure from Moder Cellar to the scene. But neverless I like the Fokker and her ethereous appearence in front of this white background.





























All kind of comments are welcome.

Cheers, Dirk

Absolutely superb Dirk!  This looks like the quintessential Eindecker to me.  Beautiful finish and details, with well-executed rigging.  Great job!

Regards,

Bob

Dirk, really an oustanding, stunning E.II. It will be a reference for me once I tackle how to make a A.1 / M.8 using parts of WNW.

regards,
Ivo

That's beautiful, Dirk. As Ivo says, just stunning.  I haven't seen a better Eindekker build.

Dirk,

Fantastic job all round. I'll certainly be referring to this build log when I come to build mine.
