Thanks!
Eduard's Goring edition of D.VIIF
regards

Very nice! It could have been mistaken for a WNW kit! Lovely and unusual scheme.

I figured I would go ahead and add my Jasta 6 DVII built for the GB.

My first WWI plain.
Also my first, attempt, to make a diorama.
It is a 1/48 Eduard, right out the box.
But this is the kit who make my very interesting in aviation of The Great War ............ and in WnW kit's!
And no, it is not a great build, but it is my first after about 25 years and it also make my decision, that all my builds going to be in a diorama. 













Out of all the things I have lost, I miss my mind the most.

Very nice DVII! The white scheme is hard to pull off and you have done it well. The Vignette is very well done and sets off the model well.

Verbeek, well don with the Fokker!  As Rick said, the white
isn't the easiest to do well and I think you have mastered it.
Very nice diorama, as well! :D

Cheers,
Ernie :)

Maybe he's being mistaken with Fat Otto, which in a well known incident took 7 men, one strong woman, and a ladder to pull him out of a pastry shop when a Fokker crashed into it.

Too bad the SOB didn't croak of cigarette induced lung cancer before he could commence his later life shenanigans.

True he was not too fat yet, but had rheumatism that made it hard from him to get in and out of the cockpit.  So he had the mechanic cut down the wall around the cockpit and add a special grap handle to make it easier to get in and out of.  So even with his thin body would take the 3 guys with a ladder to get out safely!

Thank you!
I really like the Von Greim scheme, and if I can find the Wingnut decalsheet serials for it I'm tempted to do my 1/32 version like it! (but then with the wing crosses in the right location!)

A beautiful looking model with a very eye-catching scheme.
