Fokker E.III. (Black 5)

Nice challenge I have built this one two years ago ...nice model but not very accurate to the real thing...here are some pics of my Eindecker.
I dont know if i will have time to do another one but if i do i will probebly go for the Fokker E.III. (381/15)
Turkish Air Service
Summer 1916 .

That's a nice looking E III, and a very good piece of work.

Without divulging any (ahem,) proprietary information, can you please point to the inaccuracies in the model? Is it possible to modify the model toward a greater accuracy?

Do you have any good links or search terms that you are willing to share? I (and others probably) would be very grateful. I have not found much photographic information about this airplane, although I know it must be out there somewhere. Do you know anything about the engine cowling? Material of construction, surface finish, etc.?

as for inaccuracy in the model ...at the rear (i dont know what is the proper name in Eng....) but it is part 27 is confusing if you dont have enything to compear with (like a pic) and you relay on the instructions...
the cuoling (i hoop I speld it ok) is not like it should be ...the cockpit is not as it should be ...and the top cabel mounts with the pully ...


as for pictuers and other material try to google :Windsock Datafile 015 - Fokker E.III it is a pdf version of a british book i found when i was building the model two years ago ...it covers the plane from all angles (B&W pic )
and it was a very good reff material.

here is somthind from that time i have found.

Be advised that Windsock Datafile 015 - Fokker E.III is a copyrighted publication. To the best of my knowledge the publisher has never released it as a free pdf file.

Sorry about that...dident mean any harm by it it was something that i found during a net search ...dident know about the copyright .
however here are some links to some walkarounds:
German Fokker E III Monoplane, 1915. - Home - Science Museum

Fokker EIII Walk Around Page 1

Hoop this is helpfull.
