Sit! Bad dog! (Fokker DVII OAW) [WNW 1:32]
« on: May 10, 2016, 06:37:36 PM »
Hello, here is my first Dio and my first attempt on a WWI Plane
The Kit is from Wingnut Wings and sadly now out of stock.
For the plane I used the complete set from HGW wich I can recommend highly.
The figures are from Kellerkind (Pilot, Officer and mechanic), Verlinden (Boy, dog and cow) and Adalbertus (Girl with puppy)
I hope you like it and do not hesitate to ask questions.





























Greetings, Manfred

Spectacular work Manfred! A very much "alive" and realistic Diorama. The aircraft is beautifully done, the cockpit detail and the leatherwork jump right out at you, Very nice piece of work!
Cheers,
Lance

Wow!  Manfred, the bad dog diorama is absolutely amazing.  The Fokker is a superb
model.  The paintwork and especially the leather is just beautiful.  It's a pleasure
to welcome such an accomplished modeler to our ranks!

Cheers,
Ernie :)

A superb diorama with all elements expertly displayed, the aircraft is brilliant and your figure painting skills are excellent, this is a very realistic and relaxed scene, well done.

Thank you all for your Kind words. This Project was very relaxing for me. My ideas just popped out of my mind and the Dio was suddenly finished.

Here are some more pics of the Cockpit and the Motor
