Finally I finished the Fokker D.XXI This is No. 221 flown by Tlt. Herman Doppenberg on May 10th, 1940. He was able to down a Bf109E that morning. The aircraft was destroyed on May 14th during an attack on Schiphol airfield. Definitely not one[...]
I had the intention to build the old Revell Fokker F-27 in 1/94 scale as it brings me good memories, however, I had the Airfix model in 1/72 scale in my stash so I went with this model instead. Although this kit was injected in a 1960 mold, it [...]
Well, I did what I could with it, I'm really not good with photo etch parts . they gave me a bit of trouble, with my shaky hands and all. As I've said before , this was an unfinished kit of my dads. He loved the DR-I, It was to him what the P-51[...]

I always wanted to build a WWI era aeroplane. However, the idea of rigging it put me off until I saw this kit from Airfix. Easy kit, very good detail and a not so complicated rigging. So I decided to give it a go. I've learned a few new (for me [...]
