Diorama idea for a Fokker Eindecker

French mechanics pose with a recently captured Fokker Eindecker, Western Front 1916. The uneven finish on the wings is very interesting

That's a great photo. Also check the finish on the rudder...

Very cool photo! Now we really need the cart that was posted a few weeks ago, or plans for one if anyone has them with dimensions for scratch building one. Did Aviattic mention they are doing one, or did I dream that?

What a great idea!  Wow, how to replicate that wing . . . .

The finish on the wings and rudder will be castor oil - those things were filthy.

All we need now is for someone to release a heap of mechanic figures, desperately needed for British and German as well.

I can't resist this one. I have a bunch of books on horse drawn wagons that i can probably steal a wagon from. I have some scale skeletons i build figures around with oven baking clay, so i can whip up the mechanics. Thanks a lot for such a great idea
