Looks fantastic Bo!

If you donít mind sharing, what technique did you use to simulate the finish on your metal cowling?

Udet's "Tin man" D.III 368/16 appears to have had a mid production fuselage characterized by the extra (false) longerons. It would have had the early warping wings.

He is also associated with a somewhat later one, s/n escapes me now but was in the 1000's. Apparently he ground looped it, there is a photo somewhere of it on its back iirc.

Cool. Instructions are here:

http://flugzeugwerke1917.com/fokkerd3/

They are slightly outdated since refactoring Sprue B -- the fuel and oil tanks are split up differently to take advantage of print orientation to reduce artifacts. The fuel tank now is 5 pieces -- top & bottom, ends and cap. The oil tank is still four pieces, but split up differently.
