Beautiful work! I just received my WnW E.III and I hope to produce with as much attention to details as you have shown. Brilliant! How long all up did it take you to complete?

Hello Fred,

thanks a lot for your ind words. To your question: It took about 31/2 months to complete the Fokker. At around 80-90 hrs I guess. The paintwork on the cowling was very time consuming and also the work on the cockpit.

With greetings from Germany,

Dirk

Hi friends,

thank you so much for your replies. I have been busy on constructing a base for my Fokker. The pilot is Modell Cellar Productions "Werner Voss" and the base is from "Model Scene". This is my first experience in building a base and adding a figure to the scene I had lots of difficulties in painting the pilot and also in finding the right camera perspective. Lots of respect to all diaroma builders! So this are my first efforts.

Cheers, Dirk

That is just beautiful Dirk!  The Eindecker looks like the real thing sitting on the turf in the low level perspective.  Very nice!

Regards,

Hi Dirk.

Very nice diorama. If it's your first then you should do it often.

About the camera perspective... no worries, it's quite good from any angle imo.

Great job and nice pics.

Cheers

Thanks Bob,

thanks for your reply. I guess that any perspective that can be taken from a spectator standing near the plane is the right. For this reason I will closely study the pics from airshows.

Greetings, Dirk

Hi Mark thanks a lot for watching my build and your comments. I hope that winter has left its cold creepy fingers from wisconsin for at least a few weeks.  ;) (I was very impressed by yor outdoor winterpics of your beautiful LVG)

Good to have you here on zhe forum.

Dirk
