Hi All! Christmas is coming sooo… I built these little planes (1:72) as christmas presents. This time aesthetics was more important than authencticity but I tried my best to keep tha balance between the two things. The DR.1 is for someone whose favourite book’s uses this plane as illustration (hence the white background for the crosses and the natural metal cowling). I bought the E.III in a perfumery (really! :))) ) and made along with the another Fokker. Some things are updated a little aon these kits – both are from Revell – for example the interiors (new seats with harnesses, control columns and instrument panels). These kits are quite basics but the parts fit well and the part breakdowns are logical and good. On some areas the moulds show their ages – particularly on the E.III – as You have to clean up lot of seams and excess flashes. I actually accidentally throw away the machine gun of the E.III because I didn’t realizet that as a part not a pieceof sprue 🙂 – so another cratching. I enjoyed these builds a lot they were stress-free and relaxing experiences (so much that I thinking of make a collection with these little WW1 fighters… but so much kit is awaiting n the stash). These old Revell kits are quite good in every respect I reccommend these for everyone – particularly the red one as that plane really no need too much rigging. I know that it is a bit early but Have a Great Modelin’ Christmas! And have a good day folks! 😉
