DR.1 Fokker

November 20, 2023 · in Aviation · · 37 · 202

In the words of Monty Python “And now for something completely different” :)-

I was talking with someone about Dave Deal's Tri Plane, so I searched for and came up with this instead.

I thought it looked cute and thought what the heck and bought it. It was an easy build and I added some painting and Tamiya Panel Line Detailer. I also took a stab at adding wood grain, and I'm reasonably happy with how the wood grain came out.

AND the big news is I did a figure….this is a first fro me I have never done a figure and probably wont do another, but seeing this was all in fun I gave it a shot. Not to bad. Even has blue eyes ;). The figure took longer to paint and assemble than the plane 🙂

SO without further ado…….I present to you the Fokker DR.1 & the Red Baron ; )

Signed……. @bikequeen errrrrr Fokker Queen 🙂 Enjoy

  3. Nice job Cricket! That's an awesome little Fokker...DR1! Nice work on the woodgrain and the Red Barron too!

  4. Looks great! An egg plane and a visible kit, how could you go wrong, Is the Baron going after Snoopy?

  5. @bikequeen - Great build Cricket. The wood grain and the figure turned out really well. You should definitely do more of both!

    • @brithebuilder Thank you Brian the wood grain was really a Happy accident. The paint wouldn’t stick to the weird plastic so I kept wiping it with my finger…and go figure it worked :). Even let me mask It so I could paint the silver part.

  6. It’s certainly different, Cricket, and, most importantly, it looks like you had a lot of fun doing it.

  7. Terrific model, Cricket (@bikequeen). This tri-plane came out great, and the wood struts look very realistic.

  8. Very cool, the figure and plane look good. Nice work.

    • @gelleeb18 Thank you Mark…the figure was kind of a pain…although I painted it with flat colors it still came out gloss. I sprayed with with flat clear and that helped a bit

  9. Really nice, Cricket! Love the plane and figure!

  10. Looks like fun. Is there a companion Snoopy Sopwith Camel?

    • @bobd56az Thanks Bob there is a Sopwith but alas no Snoopy : /
