Good start and this looks to be a very nice kit of the aircraft. I'm pretty sure that Eduard's offering would be my first port of call for a Dr.1 - 1/48th is my preferred scale for these WW I single-seat fighters as I find them to be just too small and fiddly in 1/72nd.

I thought it was common knowledge that a weekend in Eduardland has a duration of about 6 weeks :mrgreen:

Do you think they have pubs in Eduardland? :roll: That 6 weeks could be ambitious if so.....Image

Nice start on T'engine Toby; very convincing

Nice to see another WW1 type Toby. I do not like the look of those streak transfers....somehow using large transfer sheet lost its appeal when I tried some Roden lozenge some years ago....it would have been easier to hand paint it! I am sure that you will manage these well though. A very fine start on the engine.

Started on the interior. It's so nice to have a kit where all the parts fit where they're supposed to.
If anyone wants to get into WW1 stuff then I can recommend this particular model by Eduard. Very little rigging and so far a joy to build.
I have another 4 in the stash. I may spend the rest of my life making little Fokkers. :mrgreen:

I've decided to use Aviattics bespoke decals rather than make my own from their streaked camouflage decal sheet.

Image[/url

[url=https://postimages.org/]Image


I tried applying the starboard decal without removing the forward outlet with dire results. "Repairs" effected but a mistake I won't make again

Image

So I cut the port one off, applied the decal and then reattached the outlet

Image

Image

I did attach the top decal but my initial fitting of the side decals left a gap so I've had to make up a new one from the streaked camouflage set I already had from Aviattic. Still not correct but most will be hidden by the triangle decals
