    Fokker Dr. I 'Skeletal'

    It's time for a little update. Been working on the wings on an off, trying to get an acceptable finish before painting. So I'm starting to add some wood grain to the spars and ribs, keeping it light. I intend to use Uschi von der Rosten veneer decals for the leading edges of the wings... Cheers: Kent
  2. CMK Wellington crew, with some heads replaced. Cheers: Kent
  3. Thank you Peter. I haven't really got any evidence of the Humber Lorry ever being in North Africa, so it's more or less a 'what if' project... This photo of a Bedford was used as an inspiration for the Humber weathering... Cheers: Kent Link to diorama...
  4. Sorry but I haven't got any photos of the build. Guess I was in a hurry to finish up the diorama... The frame is made from styrene sheet/profiles. For the wheels I made a master, a silicone mold and then they were cast in resin... Cheers: Kent
  5. Thanks for letting me know, I have updated the build thread.... Cheers: Kent

    Thank you Rob. I think most modellers are dreaming of doing something like this, I know I have, and for many years too. I knew it would be difficult and the project has brought me to the farthest corners of my skills, even to the point of giving up on the rigging of the fuselage, only to be 'saved' by the turnbuckles from Radu... Cheers: Kent

    Not really a kit Jeff, I'm using the Roden kit as a guide and I will be using a few parts along the way. The rudder is from Aviattic, the wire wheels from Part and the turnbuckles from RB Productions the rest is scratched from styrene profiles. The wing spars have been made as silicone molds and cast in resin... Cheers: Kent
  9. Hi Guy's Just want to share my latest project with you all. It's been on the Bench for a while but now I'm pretty sure I've put the 'worst' behind me... A 'skeletal' Fokker Dr. I. I've used Aviattic's rudder and wire wheels from Part's photo etch, the rest is scartched... The wings are also coming along nicely... Cheers: Kent
  10. Fantastic work on the Crocodile very inspirational. Got mine yesterday ;-)
