  1. New job, old job, the answer is still the same.
    Excellent work Vlad.
    Well done sir.

  2. Like Simon said, excellent, Vlad!

  3. Very good Vlad!!!

  4. Always a treat to see your work/photos, sir….nicely done.

  5. Another great job! I see rigging in the build photos, but does it just not show up in the final build pictures?

  6. I keep forgetting you work in 1/72nd. The detail on this would be impressive in 1/48th unbelievable in 1/72nd.
    Where do you find these old photos, especially in this good of condition?

  7. Great modeling Vlad, Your detail work in this scale is fantastic.

  8. Friends, thank you very much!

    Best regards, Vlad.

  9. Alan, this cable to the aileron. Fokker was not on the rigging between the wings.

  10. Al, I am surprised how many there are good photographs of the time.
    Friends modelers from our site sс always help in finding photos.

  11. Again a perfect example of your work Vlad, its perfect ! I tried the 1/48 Fokker from Roden and found out, that it was VERY fiddly, but in 1/72, oh well.
    How long did the red army used the DVII ?

    • Bernd, thank you!

      Yes, the model of Rodеn is not the most comfortable in the building.

      Fokkers flew flight school until about 1927. Gradually replaced by more modern Soviet aircraft.

      Best regards, Vlad.

      • Your modelling is unbelievable Vlad ! It is interesting how long the DVII was used after WWI .
        Thanks for posting the original pictures, nice squadron emblem on the rudder.

  12. Its always a pleasure to see your models Vlad.Excellent! Fokker DVII is my favourite WW1 aircraft.

  13. Vlad:
    Beautifully done!
    I always look forward to your submissions, both for their quality and for the accompanying historical photos and the information you provide.
    If I didn’t know it was 1/72, I’d believe it was 1/48th The detail!
    Me, I’m selling my stuff and taking up Hello Kitty, or something.

  14. 🙂 Bernard, thank you!
    Hello Kitty is Cool!

    Best regards, Vlad.
