Hi Everybody.

This is the build review of the Wingnutwings Fokker D.VII F.

As this is my first WW I and WNW kit, and as I'm not really into this kind of planes, I have to apologize to this kind of job for the specialists.

I will build it Out Of The Box, just made the rigging as it's put in the instructions.

I want to made this build review as I would like to see all, with "how too" and "how I do this".

So, enough Blabla....

Page four of the instruction start with the cockpit:

Here are the parts used in the first row:

SAM_0011_zps2d05745f.jpg

 

Start with the floor.I painted a base coat of Tamiya XF-59, through my Infinity Airbrush, as this is the base for the wood "color"

SAM_0016_zps6d17c6e9.jpg

 

When the pain is dry (a few minutes) I took my oil pains.

From Left to right:

Titanium White - Yellow Ochre - Burnt Sienna - Burnt umber

SAM_0018_zps52fd18b8.jpg

 

I use two brushes, one old fin pointed and a flat one:

SAM_0019_zpsb726246d.jpg

 

With the fine pointed brush, I put some "drops" of paint, randomly.

SAM_0021_zps5a907c34.jpg

 

Using the large brush, I "painted" the dots in the length of the floor.

SAM_0024_zps961b85e4.jpg

 

I then start again changing the size and pattern of the dots.

SAM_0025_zps1c9e73f7.jpg

 

And here is the result. I know there are a lot of manners to simulate wood (decals from Ushi, etc...) but I like doing it "the old fashion way"

SAM_0027_zps5da29fa3.jpg

 

I then let the oil paint dry for a day or two.

When dry, i painted a coat of Tamiya Clear X-22 With the airbrush.

Let it dry for at least one day.

SAM_0044_zpsd22345bc.jpg

 

To simulate the metal shields, where the pilot feet stay, I decide to use a piece of domestic aluminum foil.

It is glued with liquitape.

SAM_0045_zps8de551c6.jpg

 

I burnish a piece of foil using a cotton stick.

I also use a wooden stick to burnish the foil in the recesses.

SAM_0046_zpsa4a5caae.jpg
 
The excess of foil is cut with a new N°11 blade following the curves on the Floor.
I then put a little wash of Dark Wash from Mig to give a little more "life" to the floor.

And there it is, first part part of this fantastic kit is done.
Hope you enjoy reading and looking.
If the explanations are boring, tell me, I will make it shorter.
Comments, questions, etc, are always welcome.
Cheers,
Jamme

Jamme,

Very clear and very instructional - an excellent 'how to' tutorial. Thank you.

I will be following your progress as I hope to get this kit at Christmas.

Cheers,

Geoff

 

Thank you for the nice comments, Geoff.

I'm sure you will have much fun with the build of your Fokker, it's a really nice kit.

 

Nice start Jamme.

 

Cheers,

Mike

 

Thank you Mike!

Cheers,

Jamme

 

 

That's a brilliant technique for the wood effect Jaimme..I might be copying your method. Good work so far, I'm going to enjoy this build...

 

No problem for copying, I'm not alone using this technique.

Anyway, as I said earlier, I have no secret. I Will share the (few) tricks I know.

Thank you for the nice comment.

Cheers,

Jamme

Time for a little UP !

Second part of the cockpit is the foot pedals.

Instructions said this part to be painted Tamiya XF-76.

As I did not have this one in stock, I used Tamiya XF-21 instead.

I think it's a good match looking at the color pictures in the instructions.

SAM_0028_zps25dfd83c.jpg

 

When dry I used a 0,5mm Pentel pencil (HB) to make some scratches.

SAM_0029_zps7cc9ac9d.jpg

 

Here a picture of the part only:

SAM_0030_zpsd39ce6a4.jpg

 

After a small wash wit MIG Dark wash, it is glued in place on the foor:

SAM_0055_zps429fa072.jpg

 

Next part is the control stick.

I painted it Tamiya XF-1 with the handles given a base of Tamiya XF-59

SAM_0035_zpsdbff14b0.jpg

 

When dry, the wooden handles received a dry Brush with Burnt Sienna oil paint.

SAM_0037_zpsbb3372e0.jpg

 

The part is now ready to be fixed on the floor. That's what I did and the floor is now finished:

That's it for the moment.

Thank you for looking.

Hope you like it.

Comments or/and questions always welcome.

That looks pretty good, Jamme.

One tip I would give you, if it interests you:
It was common in the Fokker ww1- planes, that all frame parts (tubes) were painted in green color.

(RLM02 is not a bad choice at this point)
But NOT all tubes in RLM02!!!!

EXCEPT the frame parts which were adjustable or movable.
These Tubes, or frames, were painted in a black color.

As an example:

- the MG-holding tubes,

- the tubes complete control of the joystick,

- the ailerons controlhorns inside the cockpit,

- the rudder pedals

- and the adjustable seat bracket.

Thank you for the nice comment, Bertl.

Thank you also for the tips, will be helpful.

So, if I'm right, the pedals and their control, and the seat brackets should be black?

That means that the paint instructions for these are not correct?

Thank you, anyway, Bertl.

Cheers,

Jamme

I'm now on the second row from the cockpit assembly.

The parts needed are:

SAM_0038_zpsc2c314b7.jpg

 

Started with the rear part of the seat:

Painted in Tamiya XF-60

SAM_0040_zpsd67fd28a.jpg

 

I then masked the part to paint the "tubes":

SAM_0048_zpsaaa17151.jpg

 

Painted them Tamiya XF-21 and a little wash of MIG Dark Wash

SAM_0053_zpsc65d9fc0.jpg

 

Part is put aside waiting for final assembly.

I then began the seat

Painted the back of it in Testors Metalizer Aluminium:

SAM_0041_zpsad6f7f1b.jpg

 

 I painted a base coat of Tamiya XF-52

SAM_0051_zps1f67a909.jpg

 

While drying, I painted the cushion with a base coat of Tamiya XF-10.

SAM_0042_zps9270d13c.jpg

 

I then painted the seat and the cushion, imitating leather with oil paints, Burnt Umber, Raw Umber, Yellow Ochre and a little white.

 SAM_0043_zps4ce79ab0.jpg

 

Here is the finished seat:

Note the slightly differences in shades for the leathers:

SAM_0063_zps460b38dc.jpg

 

SAM_0066_zps32a29422.jpg

 

I painted the seat brackets in Tamiya XF21 (What is not correct, must be black)

SAM_0001_zps5e9b442d.jpg

 

I then put the seat on the rear wall:

SAM_0002_zpsc0165a16.jpg

 

SAM_0005_zps8c7530a2.jpg

 

Put the brackets on the assembly:

SAM_0006_zps540213c7.jpg

 

SAM_0007_zps6610cc9a.jpg

 

I since then repainted the brackets as suggested (thank you one again Bertl) in Black (Tamiya XF-1)

 

That's all for tonight.

Really hope you like it.

Comments and/or questions always welcome.

Happy modeling.

Cheers,

Jamme

Thank you Dave.

I had a little time free for modeling in the 2 last days.

Will have more free time next week when all the administrative papers will be OK for my pre retreat (stopped working end August, after 42 years.....I'm old  :D )

I'm happy you like the Build Review.

Cheers,

Jamme

Hello to Everybody.

As I said last week, I now have more time for modeling.

So it's time for an UP.

These are the parts used in the third row of the first page of the instructions:

SAM_0008_zpsce7d7013.jpg

 

I painted and weathered by brush the inside of the ammunition box with Tamiya XF-56, XF-28 and MIG dark wash:

SAM_0009_zpsa1d2860a.jpg

 

I then clued the ammo boxes together, painted them using Modelmaster Aluminium Metalizer:

SAM_0016_zps5f4be15b.jpg

 

Then a wash with MIG dark wash and AK streaking grime:

SAM_0001_zpse9bd0a85.jpg

 

SAM_0014_zpse2e9d06f.jpg

 

The MG support and other strut are painted with Tamiya XF-21 and XF-1:

SAM_0011_zps940b0818.jpg

 

Weathering, using the same trick as always:

SAM_0012_zps56e9b492.jpg

 

I then assembled and painted using Tamiya XF-1, XF-61 and XF-3:

SAM_0010_zps999dc037.jpg

 

The fuel caps were painted using Modelmaster bright brass and a little wash was done:

SAM_0013_zps33003ed1.jpg

 

Firewall was first painted with Modelmaster Metalizer Aluminium then weathered:

SAM_0017_zps1b268142.jpg

 

Back in a few moments..........

That's it for the moment.

I hope you enjoy yourself as much as I did.

Thank you for looking and for the comments,

Questions always welcome.

Hi Everybody.

Time for a little UP!

Following the instructions, I painted the frames and accessories that are fixed on them with the following colors:

SAM_0021_zps188c5bd8.jpg

 

SAM_0022_zpse5c1f786.jpg

 

I then use EZ Line (the finest) to make the reinforcing cables. I painted them when installed with Testor's Aluminium Metalizer:

SAM_0024_zps072af731.jpg

 

Here are the finished frames, ready to be assembled:

SAM_0025_zps3dfe7b0f.jpg

 

I then started the seat belts.

I warmed the pieces with a warm hot gun:

SAM_0027_zps89b09751.jpg

 

I painted the belts in off white and installed them on the seat:

SAM_0030_zpse9e6cda3.jpg

 

Always following the instructions, I began the assembly of the parts on the frames,

First comes the seat:

SAM_0031_zpsf57379d3.jpg

 

Then added the floor:

SAM_0035_zpsbc8dcd7d.jpg

 

And then finally the fuel tank and ammunition boxes:

SAM_0037_zpsdf49e660.jpg

 

SAM_0038_zps6329b2be.jpg

 

Back in a few minutes.........
