Manfred’s and Lothar’s Dr.1’s
The brother’s Richthofen together again! Well, at least on my work table.
Hey Fellow iModelers! Gary from Williamsport, PA.. I had to take time out from watching the Little League World Series to present these Dr.1’s I completed last night. I hope you like them.
Roden 1/32 Foker Dr.1
Encore(Roden) 1/32 F.1. I did not use the F.1 resin parts supplied in the Encore kit, so essentially, I built another Roden Dr.1.
Eduard photo etched parts #32547 were used for both aircraft.
Decals: A mixture of the two listed kits as well as the 1/32 Hobbycraft DR.1 decals.
Scratch built wood propellers.
Primed with Mr.Finishing Surfaces 1500 Gray. Clear coated with Pledge floor acrylic prior to streaking and decals. Model Master Olive Drab with MIG Oilbrusher Dark Mud, for some color variation, were used for the Fokker streaking. The undersides are Aqueous Hobby Color H67 Light Blue. Red and Yellow are True-Earth SDW paints. This was my first use of True-Earth paints and I was pleased with the results.
Weathering was accomplished with a wash of thinned burnt-umber artist oil paint for shadows and that dirty look and dry brushed with white and yellow-ochre artist oil paint for highlighting.
Manfred and Lothar figures will be added in the future.
Can I make a modelers request? Okay Wingnut Wings, you are teasing us with some DR.1 decals included in your recent Richthofen Albatros when will a WNW’s DR.1 kit come ?!?!?! Sorry, just had to get that out there….LOL
Back to the Little League World Series and on to my next project……..Happy modeling iModelers. Keep it FUN!
