Both, truly extraordinary, Bob, but then I wouldn't expect any less from your talented hands.  I look forward to more Dr.I's from your bench.
Cheers,
Bud

As always I agree with my Amigo 100% I have another in the stash, it is actually pretty high in my building pile because I don't have a Jasta 6 bird yet  ::)  Your two make me think it should follow the Snipe!

Hi Bob,

You have quite a flight of beautiful Fokker tripes. Magnificent work and very nice schemes. I wished I could reach 50% of your skills. Congratulations

Kind regards
Patrick

The Triplanes look just gorgeous, Bob.  Amazing job, and an indication of
your modelling talents.  I look forward to seeing more of your models.  Really
inspiring stuff, my friend.

Cheers,
Ernie :)

Great Job on the Tripes Bob:  I especially am attracted to the Lothar Bird.  Nicely done.

Lovely work Bob. There must be almost as many great Triplanes displayed in this Forum as there were actual aircraft built !

Best wishes

Great job, Rick!  I am wondering about using the oils.  Is the main advantage the
slow drying time? That is a really sharp paint scheme?
