Beautiful Prez!  I plan to do Buddecke's Eindecker with a 1/32 WNW kit, when I finally get around to it!  Thanks for inspiring me. ;D

Regards,

Bob

You did an amazing job on this one, Jacek!  This is the classic "silk purse".  With all the work you put into it, you can't tell it from the Eduard kits.
Cheers,
Bud

She's an exquisite little gem, Paulo!  Saw her in your intro and was immediately impressed with your skills in such a small scale.  I'm glad you posted her here so I could be blown away again.
Cheers,
Bud

Thanks for the beautiful Eindeckers, fellows. One of my favourite
aeroplanes, it's great to see such wonderful examples of them.
Grateful for you sharing them with us!

Cheers,
Ernie :)

Great looking Eindeckers guys.  I am especially impressed with the magic you folks can do with the old Revell 1/72nd kit.  Some of the pics aren't showing, all I see are black x's.  Des, your workmanship with the B/A kit is amazing.

With a bit of embarrassment I will submit this.  About the first model since
I re-entered the hobby and first with extensive rigging. Eduard 1/48 E.III.





Apologies for the photography...never very good at it. :-[

Cheers,
Ernie :)

No embarrassment indicated here, Ernie, it's a very nice E Type. Better still given it's your first and the rigging is very well finished given 1:48 Scale. Great choice of colour scheme and a very nice model!
Cheers,
Lance

Best wishes

I have two Eindekkers, a E.III posted behind already and a E.I.





@Ernie: there's no reason to any embarrassment, your Fokker it's very nicely build and the rigging with the turnbuckels it's perfect.
I like it very much... top re-entry ;)!

A pair of truly gorgeous Eindeckers, Ernie and Paulo!  You guys are tempting me to build one.
Cheers,
Bud

I agree with my Amigo 100%! I am now tempted to go for my Second WNW Eindecker, ( I traded away my First), In case I missed anyone, I am extremely impressed with all of the Eindeckers in this thread!
