Magnificent, Amigo!  You're getting up their with Ed in your Dr.I count.  I've only got one.  I feel I'm dropping the ball.
Cheers,
Bud

Thanks Bud! I may be getting close to Ed in Numbers but never in skills or results from Old Time Triplane Molds like the Revelle 1/28th kits  ::)

Rick:

You have really nailed the Voss scheme, IMHO.  Very well done!

Best regards,

Bob


ps:  Actually, you've nailed MvR's 425/17 as well!  Outstanding play. ;) 

Thanks for the great comments Bob! Greatly appreciated.

Since everyone has to build his Dreidecker, I build a Fokker Dr.I Eduard 1/72 Stripdown!

Great naked Tripe!! On scrolling thru this thread I looked at Kalt's build article on Udet's machine. Was the wing streaking straight on the wings or is that an optical thing happening on the reference photo? I'm sure I've missed an explanation....

This is a truly remarkable build, Frank, especially in 1/72 scale!  Simply astonishing!
Cheers

Thanks for posting these, Amigo!  This is the finest collection of Dr.I's that I've ever seen.  I've had the privilege of seeing all but the Udet bird in person and they are even more impressive so seen.
Cheers,
Bud

Finally I managed to finish one of my suspended models from ages. This is my Eduard Fokker Dr.I in the Frommhertz's livery. Streaks are made with Aviattic decals.

   That is a really beautifully done model Giuseppe, I had to go back to the photos a second time when I realized it wasn't a 1:32 Scale model! Great finish, and the streak decals are very impressive.
Cheers,
Lance
