Beautifully done! I’ve got one my father stared awhile back, maybe I’ll give it a go.

Another excellent result – you inspire me to pull out my 1/32 kit and put those Aviattic Decals i have to use.
This one checks all the boxes for me !!!! It’s fantastic, and happens to be my second most favorite “Great War” plane………….. right behind the Fokker D VII. But I have to admit, the Albatros D-III / D- V, and Pfalz D-III planes are right up there too as far as looks go.
I especially like how you pre-shaded the frame work on the fuselage to represent the welded steel tubing, and the wing ribs on the underside of the wings. This one gets two thumbs up and a great big “liked”.
About two years ago I posted an article on here about how I paint the “Fokker” streaks, in hopes that it might help someone later down the road. Now all we need is for Wingnut Wings to start selling their new tool 1/32 scale Dr-1. That’s going to be a license to print money right there ……………
I have one question for you…………… How did you replicate the stitching where the fuselage fabric is laced together on the underside ??? It looks very good by the way.

Hi Louis, glad you like it.
From memory the stitching is a strip of brass PE included in the kit.

David – A great result on an iconic machine. I’ve been working my way through Eduard’s Weekend F.1 which will turn up here sooner or later. I suspect the mouldings between your kit and the F.1 are pretty similar (apart fromthe obvious) and I was quite pleased with the way Eduard reproduced the fuselage fabric stitching. On my kit, there’s a trough down the underside middle of the fuselage and a matching strip of plastic with the stitching on one side. Once inserted in the trough, it’s a much better presentation than hand-botched painted stitches that I’d put on other Triplane models. Well done. Paul
