My little Voss' Fokker F1 103/17

Hi all!

This is my last little project, an Heroics&Ross Fokker triplane, modified to match the F1 of Werner Voss. Hope you enjoy with the pics!



General view of the miniature. The smaller parts, like the struts, landing gear, etc, must be replaced.



The model finished. I have used plasticard for the wing struts and axle-wing, wire for the cabanne struts and landing gear, and strechted sprue for the wheels and propeller hub.



Front view. I tried to set the wing and struts as aligned as possible... With the new cabanne struts, I could sculpt the MG on the white alloy.



Underside view. The base is from Citadel/Games Workshop.

Under the sun! The model is now painted, with my own version of the F1 scheme. As you can see, Voss is also painted with helmet and googles.



The cowling. We have only 4 milimetres to paint the 'face', so this is the best I have been able to do...



A general view of the model finished, painted and varnished. The decals are from I-94 Enterprises.

More pics; the Fokker-streak scheme is my own version of the possible looking of this particular F1.

Under a different light, the little triplane looks nice!



My F1 over the front (A Battletech Hex-Map grid; Hope he doesn't have to face a RFL-3N Rifleman Battlemech!!!)



A final pic, showing the under sides. I read somewhere that the V4 should have the lower wing Iron Crosses painted directly over the CDL, with no white squares, so I try it in my F1 to give another touch of color.

With the best regards from Spain...

mmm, one hundred views but no repply...

no comments to my small bizarre creation?

anyway, thanks for seeing my work; Even with the faults, I'm very proud of it (I was looking for doing something like the old Revell 1/72 Fokker triplane kit box-art, with that 'blue' shade)

Best regards,



Rinahe

OK you asked for that......in my opinion you did a nearly perfect paint-job.
But the model itself...... .....let`s say it`s a little eh..raw.
When i saw the model i thought about making a better model in paper.
Just my 2 cents..

Hi vonSchaller,

thank you very much for your repply.

yes, the Heroics&Ross white-alloy planes at 1/300 scale are quite 'raw' in details; the shape of the plane resembles a triplane, but it's no perfect at all. And remember that this plane has a 2'5 centimetres wing!
Anyway, this is a model to replace 'Blue-Max' cards, and just for fun.

I'm very happy that you like the paint job.
Do you have any pic of a 1/300 scale paper model?

Best regards from Spain,

Rinahe

Nice E.III, vonSchaller!



When I was a child, I made a big (near 1/24) papper Fokker Dr.I (425/17, of course), and was a very fun work. If you have more pics of your papper-birds, please let us see them.

Best regards,

Rinahe

P.S. Nils, my little Voss says: Thank you!
