Eduard 1/48 Fokker D.VII

My first WW1 completed. Ernst Udet's DVII (OAW) Jasta 4 Beugneux-Cramoisselles airfield, France, June 1918.
There are so many different opinions on the colours, some say there was a black nose, the stripes were top of the upper wing only, etc. Some say it was a high gloss finish. I went with what I liked the look of the most. Hope you like.

  1. The main argument against the lower surface of the upper wing being painted is that it's hard to paint a surface above you, something I found true working on F4U-7 BuNo 133722 50 years ago.

    That said, this is a really really nice looking model, Paul, and a great way to enter the World of World War I Modeling. Watch out, it's been known to be addictive.

    "Liked" (a lot)
