I just received a copy of "Fokker Eindecker in action". It is a Squadron/Signal Publication that I believe is out of print (didn't find it on Squadron's website...had to order on Amazon.com).

I thought these pictures might help with the interior details and maybe rigging.

Thanks. Your pictures confirm my suspicion that the cowling fairing plates in the model are not quite the right shape. They look OK they are just not 100% accurate.

B, I tend to agree.

I notice you are a bit further a long than I am. I'll be watching to see how you cope and I'll do my usual "Fit darn you fit!!" :D

I have had no fit problems with the model so far other than the inside panels and the position of the seat. I was pleasantly surprised with the fairings. I pre-shaped them with my rolly-stik and they fit perfectly no trimming required.

Well, I'm on hold for a couple of weeks. I have my Nephew and Niece here visiting. Between my new job and these two it doesn't leave much time to work on my bird. I am keeping up on the postings, though. Should be able to hit it hard mid July.

Looks like we will both be entering a fruitful building period in late July. I look forward to seeing more of this excellent model.

Meanwhile, enjoy the kids. I look forward to visits from the grandsons this summer.
