Eduard 1/48 Fokker Dr 1.
This is not the one he was shot down in and there's much conjecture regarding the red shade. I have a pic from the Australian War Memorial which I go to often, showing a piece of the Fokker Dr1 he was shot down in, so am guessing a similar shade for this, which is one of his other Dr1s. He had several. I've accounted for a freshly coated paint job on mine. I believe the fire engine red you see often is too bright, especially when you consider the red paint went over the factory standard streaked camouflaged pattern. I went with US insignia red which looks a little brighter in these pics than it actually is in real life. A fun simple build before tackling some difficult builds in the near future. Thanks for looking and for those who comment on my other builds. Much appreciated. ?
