Eindecker eins

Behold the first of my trio of Fokkers. I did a bit of research (gasp!) on colour schemes but eliminated those which looked difficult to paint. I rather liked the idea of purple stripes though. The sinister black crosses came with the kit, the numbers are from the decal box. The liberal coat of gloss floor varnish will help keep everything intact during damp alfresco games.

A nice bit of work Tim- the purple is very fetching.

Cheers,

Pete.

It's the spirit of the 1970s, man.

Hopefully it'll help to make the 'Somme' look more cheery.

Wee is the word. It looks quite modern aside from its size.

It's an easy plane to like. And still more to come!

Are you calling me a fancy Fokker?

Steady on! Research? The sort of villainy resorted to by communists and Frenchmen.
