Revell Fokker D VII 1/72

Postby royjess » Sat Nov 14, 2020 9:46 pm

My daughter purchased this kit a good few years back for the partwork Xmas comp, but she never made it. She had a clear out of her room last year and she gave me the kit.

I've finally found the time to make a start on it.

First I painted the pilot according to the instructions

The plane halves glued together and clamped whilst the glue set.

Thanks Morris and Mark,

I've now primed the parts awaiting painting. The old tooling shouldn't cause me too much of a problem

I painted the Fokker.

And I then glued the parts together. Holding the wings in place with some masking tape while the glue sets. Lining up all the parts on the wings were very fiddly, you get one part lined up and glued in and another part would spring apart.

'm going to leave the glue to set overnight before I continue...

I feel you, Roy ;) - I like the paint scheme - always liked the WWI logenze camo

Thanks Morris

I applied the deco using the set and sol. I then coated everything with a few layers of gloss and a final layer of satin varnish.

Some black cotton rigging was attached below just above the wheels and on top of the rear tail wings

Lovely job. Is that lozenge pattern the outlines, and you have to paint the colours? Looks tedious!

I’ve got the Eduard version of this kit in my stash which I keep threatening to start.

Thanks Mark

The lozenge were the décor outlined transfer applied and then I painted each section by hand. It took me a couple of hours to paint
