Fokker Dr.I

New color scheme #2

On

Here is the third update of my Fokker Dr.I project.

This update shows a new color scheme for this airplane. It shows the Fokker Dr.I with serial number 127/17 piloted by Manfred von Richthofen within Jasta 11, before the one all covered with red which is his most famous airplane. On this model, only the upper side of the wings and the empennage are red.

  • Here is an overview of the plane upon its pedestal and a close-up of the panel:

  • The fuselage is green and the lower side of the plane are sky blue:

  • Here is a closup image of the cockpit:

I sincerely thank everybody for the kind messages and for all support I received so far!

New color scheme #1

On

Here is the third update of my Fokker Dr.I project.

This update shows a new color scheme for this airplane. It shows the Fokker F.I (which is not exactly the same than the Fokker Dr.I) with serial number 103/17 piloted by Werner Voss, another famous German ace of the World War I, until he was killed in action on the 23rd of September 1917.

  • Here is an overview of the plane upon its pedestal and a close-up of the panel:

  • The upper color is green and the underside is sky blue, with some different German crosses:

  • On the nose of the plane, there is the famous "face painting" with white eyebrows, white-bordered black eyes and white mustache:

Again, I sincerely thank everybody who has supported this project for the moment.

Please feel free to comment this new update!


Wing ribs improvement

On

Here is the second update of my Fokker Dr.I project.

Following a suggestion I got on MOC Pages, I have used slopes in front of the wing ribs, to get a smoother effect, as shown on the close-up image :

Again, I want to sincerely thank all people who have supported this project for now!


Pedestal addition and nose update

On

Here is the first update of my Fokker Dr.I project!

Two main changes in this update:

  • I have added a pedestal to the model, a bit like if it was exposed in a museum. I have also put a panel explaining which airplane is exposed, what are its characteristics and who was its pilot. The minifigure here shows how the pilot was equipped. Of course, it is not at the same scale than the plane.

  • I have changed the nose of the plane to get it more convex, as it was on the real plane.

I hope you will enjoy these changes!

I truly want to thank everybody for supports and comments!
