Revell 1/28 Fokker Dr.1

August 8, 2014 · in Aviation · · 7 · 2.5K

I've always loved these big planes by . This is probably the fifth triplane I've built since the sixties. Details include etched brass from Tom's Modelworks, decals by Americal Gryphon (crosses only, the rest was painted on).

Streaking is done by applying a base coat of an enamel clear doped linen color. Then, brushing on a green drab acrylic, first full strength, then diluting the brush with water as I go along until there is no color left on the brush.

This was my second attempt at hand carving a propeller
