GazzaS Posted July 8, 2020 Share Posted July 8, 2020 Hi everyone, Time to call another one done. No idea who the pilot was, and the color scheme is all based on my research and some help from others that know more about WWI and Fokker D.VII's than I do. And here is the photo that started it all: I had originally stressed over crinkles around the wing edge... but then I found that the real thing has crinkles in places, too. The Green and white tail is of Jasta 54. A Saxon unit. I used graphite powder to simulate wiped lubrication oil stains. A fly joined the photo-shoot destroying all sense of scale. Bastard!! More graphite powder. I hate over-weathering on aircraft models. But that's me. It's taken quite a few attempts but I finally have masking laminated props. Still need work on the wood grain, though. But I forgot to paint the prop shaft stub.... I used some armor weathering technique to highlight the louvered cowl. And I smudged the step-pads of the wing root with more graphite powder. Some under-wing spatters and dirtied up the wheels a bit. And I almost forgot the obligatory cockpit shots: Thank you for looking!
