Captured Fokker E.III (210/16)

It is my intention to start with the captured Fokker E.III (210/16). I'll probably build at least one other variant. I really like this little mono plane.

Cool, beat me too it! Lots of cool stuff to chose from though! I will watch and learn, and pick up some good details. My first try at this model turned out alright, but that was a year a go, so if I watch your build may be I will be able to improve on mine.

That is the only surviving E-lll.
You could build it the way it looks today.

Don't let me stop you from building this one guys. The more the merrier. There are only so many of them after all. As for building one as per the museum's - maybe when I have a few centuries experience.

I though I would start with the engine. The E.III primarily used the Oberursel .UI engine. Here is what it is supposed to look like and my build. I tried to give it a bit of age by applying a glaze that is a mix of Future an acrylic gray paint.

Which is the original engine??

The glaze makes a massive difference to the appearance of the engine...
