Dave,
I really like your Revelle Fokker! The painting and Lozenge application is great! despite the kits shape pitfalls it looks like a Fokker when completed!!

I have to agree with Rick, Dave!  Your painting and decal work are fantastic.
Cheers,
Bud

Trying to play catchup here.  Suffice to say I think the modelling shown here is absolutely superb.
I applaud all these beautiful D.VII's !

Cheers,
Ernie :)

Thanks for all of the great comments!  There is some really nice work shown in this thread!  Have just started on another WNW DVII.  This time it will be the 7 Swabians.

Love this one, partner!  One of my all time favorite D.VII's.  As I said before, the see through effect of the fuselage lozenge is perfect.
Cheers,
Bud

She is a beautiful looking D.VII Rick, I love the mustard/yellow colour you used, very appealing.

Here is one of the 1/48 scale Roden Fokker D.VII early Fok built, I modified it to represent Hippert's checkerboard D.VII "Mimmi" by drilling out various cooling holes in the cowling and scratchbuilding an oxygen canister as shown in the famous photo.
