Happy new year! Finished another D.VII!

Hope everyone had a good new year. just finished my Roden Fokker D.VII early OAW version (1/48 scale) on Dec. 31. It is in the markings of Udet's Jasta 4 Lo! version with no red whatever, this aircraft carried normal Jasta 4 black nose, struts & wheels, black & white stripes on the fuselage edges, and a white chevron on the tailplane (both sides per DSA) The only thing I want to add are the leaders streamers on the tail. Anyone have any advice on how to represent these? I'm thinking lead foil will work painted black & white, but how were these fastened to the tail?
Thanks,
Dave

Who's decals did you use?

Very nice job on the DVII. Who's decals did you use Roden's or aftermarket?

Americal Gryphon

The decals were from Americal Gryphon, the Jasta 4 sheet # 171 had the personal markings, and I used their upper & lower 4 color lozenge. Unfortunately they closed up shop 3 days ago, so they will be hard to obtain at this time. I used the white stencils from the Roden kit, and rib tapes from an Eduard kit. This scheme would be fairly easy to do using the Roden LO! decal and some white & black Microscale or Superscale trim film to do the stripes and chevrons.

Super job Dave. How about some more and larger views of the model?

From the Factory on the hill,

Dave,

What a beautiful D.VII. Looks like you did another amazing job. Would love to see more! What's next on the bench for you?

Thanks John,
I just e-mailed some more photos to the ww1 mailing list, they should be posted in my model images page in a few days... I've been having trouble sending in larger photos to the Aerodrome since they must be less than 50kb and mine are usually around 400 - so I have to reduce the image size & pixel size to get them to send. Let me know if there is an easier way to do this!
Next in line, I have a Karaya ansaldo Balilla about 1/2 way done, and a Roden Bristol F2B in the same state, also Nungesser's camouflaged N.17 and a couple of more Fokker D.VII's, not sure which will be finished next!

Dave--

Try a Flicker or Photobucket account, and then just cut and paste the images onto the Aerodrome post. It seems to work for me as well as others. Both those sites are free, btw...

Good luck!
John
