Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII

I’m reaching the end of the decalling phase (more or less) as I put the white trim on the fuselage and tail plane and started applying the woodgrain decal on the wing, I’ve never used so much Kleer on a model as I have on this one.

The seat belts wereContinue reading “Fokker E.V/ D.VIII cockpit finished”

I was looking at the Aviattic lozenge decal after I had applied it a week or so ago and was wondering what all the fuss was aboutContinue reading “Fokker E.V/D.VIII update”
