Fokker D-II 1/32nd (Marek's Models)

Hello all...Here is another one I'm starting. Looks neat too!
It's done up in Kissenbarth's markings and should build up well. I started some interior stuff with the gas tank, floor boards and the compass. The only change has been to paint some masking tape and wrap it around the tank to give some relief to the straps or welding around the tank. I don't think you'll see much when it's together, but, as they say...I'll know it's there! I also added some Testors Window Maker to add "glass" to the compass.

More to come!
Dan

Convincing textures and effects. And that's just the floor and gas tank! Can't wait to see the rest of it.

Thank you Thunderbolt, Rata, Butel and Don! So far, slow and steady is going well. I think it will be a real looker...


I got some more interior done along with the pilot's seat. Added some rudder cables from EZ-Line and got the interior "tubular" steel attached on the inside fuselage walls. I still need to add some wire from the throttle (maybe it's an advance of some kind?) as well as the tank pressurizer. More to come!

Good start Dan, those small enhancements you have added will pay off in the end as it will make the model so much more appealing. And once you start with detailing, it's hard to stop...

Thanks, Folks! So far it's going very well. Although...now I've started the fuselage!


It's construction is...shall we say...unconventional (to me). It's kind of odd, but if I can keep it all square, perhaps it will make a nice, strong and straight fuselage. We'll see. The pictures tell the story. I think my sequence is correct in that this is an inner skin and the outer skin with the markings should act as a shell and go over all of this...at least that's my theory!

Stay tuned...Dan
