The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

Wingnut Wings WNW Fokker E.I - E.I 5/15 -


Recommended Posts

Yeah, I know - the WNW Albatros D.V Ltn. Adam is not finished yet, the Hansa Brandenburg W.29 also not yet and the Mercedes D.IIIa - engine must also wait.

I'm also still busy with the Fokker V.4

 

http://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/566-fokker-dreidecker/

 

- but I have no desire to continue building this little Dreidekker.
 

 

Well, so I do not get bored, I started with the WNW Fokker EI.
The EI 5/15 by Kurt Wintgens with the high-mounted wing.
This thing will be a strictly OOB built .............. no super detailling and no-frills or so............... :ph34r: 
 

Ahh - stop - I will use the Taurus Oberursel U-0 Umlaufmotor and HGW-Seatbelts

First I started with the cockpit.
Here, all four turnbuckles were removed for the hanger bracket to the rudder pedals. Brass turnbuckles will be mounted later at this point.

Then the engine cowling.
The attachment points were less well represented by WNW.

This Cowling was kept and screwed in the original with two steel cables.

I also wanted to represent these Details on my E.I.
First, the cowl was abraded with sandpaper, and thereafter attached the two recesses for the tensioning cables.

Next, the Cowling was heavily and veeeeery careful thinned with an Dremel.

How thin?
Well, you see here a pair of tweezers with the imprint "rust-free" at the end of the tweezers.........................

.................. you can see this print almost through the plastic. -_-

Hi Bertl,

 

I will be watching this build for tips and tricks (as usually). I was thinking that you will have to thin the cowl and then, voila, you thin it to "see thru" dimensions  :blink:

 

Good luck and try to keep to the OOB plan ;) 

 

Best regards,

Sasho

Well, I love my Dremel ........................ :D 
The top cover  was also milled thinner in the fuel gauge, the filler neck, and the MG mount.

This gives the impression that these parts are realy made ​​of thin aluminum.
The two fuel caps were also removed.

Here can be seen the Front cowling and the top cover .

The MG-control mechanism may not work as it was presented in the model.

The Front cowling could not be removed in the original, without degrading the MG mechanism.
That would make no sense.
I'll change it later.

I hope it still exist good Images to be able to recreate this correct...............................

 

The "Fokker-screws" (red circle) were also drilled out.

@Red Baron:
I still have no idea how I'm going to represent these swirls. :mellow: 
I think I'm going to try different things, but I will present the result and show what technique I used.

@Guy5Y:

Thank you, Guy. ;) 

@Ssasho0:

Sasho, yes, I used a Resinsaw. This saw allows very thin and straight saw cuts.

@James H:
I used a "Höhenanreißer" for those recesses.

Unfortunately, I don't know the English word for it, but I think these pictures explain how I did it.

Its a machinists height gauge. Really quite useful for marking cut lines and the like besides its original purpose of measuring. Ive used one many a time but never to create a scribe in plastic.

 

nicely done!

 

Are you still milling some of your engine parts now and then?

Bertl-

 

"Are you still milling some of your engine parts now and then?"

 

Sorry that question came out of nowhere. Back in the day on the Aredrome forume you were pointing out some of the parts you were milling for your Mercedes D.IIIa.

 

http://www.theaerodrome.com/forum/models/47714-again-wnw-albatros-d-v-12.html

 

I had asked for a set back then but life intervied and I never got a chance to pick them up from you.

 

I now have a cnc mill and am wondering if you would be willing to share youre cad file so I might make a set form myself. Im also wondering if you have milled many other parts for your builds.

 

All the best!

Oh, you mean these parts, Michael ..................................................... long long time ago. ^_^

I think I still have some of these parts. :huh:

 

The CAD drawings no longer exist, due to a defective hard drive, all my AutoCAD- and Milling -files were lost. It's been just about 3 months. :angry:

..................and here two small updates for today.

 

First, the test for the fastening ropes on the cowl.

This is a 0,12mm fishingline, painted with a mix of 80% Alu and 20% NATO-black.

For final mounting, I think I will use a 0.8 mm fishing line.
