Administrators JeroenPeters Posted August 11, 2013 Administrators Share Posted August 11, 2013 One of my favorite planes... Strong, diverse, rugged and diverse in versions and scheme's. I bummed this kit of Jim (thnx buddy!) and Cees dropped off (as usual) some great reference books. At first I wanted to do one in Dutch markings of the LVA. Number 266 (as can be seen in our militairy aviation museum - see walkaround posted by Erik) or number 265 (as can be seen at the hangar of 'Early Birds' in Lelystad). Both of these planes are in a two colour scheme. Green and blue. Linky to 'Early Birds' BUT... then Cees gave me something that changed everything and made me decide to do the scheme below. More later. Yesterday I visited the 'Early Birds' hangar at Lelystad airport. It's a collection of mostly WW1 planes. Most of them are replica's but with many original parts. Their Fokker DVII features an original Mercedes DIIIa engine, prop, radiator, fuel tank, etc... As soon as a hole and dent in the wing are fixed, it should be able to fly again. They also have a Sopwith Pup, Fokker DR1, Camel and amazing Nieuport 28 on display. Cheers, Jeroen 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
