Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII finished

 I managed to finally finish this one at last, it’s been ongoing for awhile but time to call it done; I’m quite happy with it as it’s the first ever WW1 aircraft in 1/48 that I have ever finished (The Eduard Albatros went to landfill earlier this year).I’ve learned a LOT from this build whichContinue reading “Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII finished”

Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII

With the Viking finished and needing to while away the small hours I put the decals on this; Once they have set I’ll give it another coat of varnish to seal the decals in, a coat of matt varnish then try my hand at weathering a WW1 aircraft which should be a giggle. I’m hopingContinue reading “Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII”

Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII

Yet another one pulled from the Shelf-Of-Doom is this Fokker that I started last year and promptly messed up when it came to the wing. Since then I’ve had a think and made a slightly different approach to the finish. After stripping the wing back to bare plastic I resprayed it with a white glossContinue reading “Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII”

Fokker E.V/ D.VIII

I masked off the wing last night so that I could spray the white band around the leading and trailing edges and wing tips. I had a sneaking suspicion that all would not be well as even after a month or so the varnish was still susceptible to finger prints, anyway after spraying the whiteContinue reading “Fokker E.V/ D.VIII”

Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII

Trying to figure out how to hold the wing so that I could paint the upper surface I hit on the idea of using a clamp. I was’nt bothered about losing or smudging the paint on the leading and trailing edges as there would be a white trim around the wing that would cover them.Continue reading “Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII”

Fokker E.V/ D.VIII

In between undercoating the E-50 and painting skirting board in the house I had a go at painting the wing of the Fokker E.V/ D.VIII. If you recall previously I had covered the wing in Uschi Van Der Rosten plywood decal then matt varnished it. Today I used oil paints to try and recreate theContinue reading “Fokker E.V/ D.VIII”

Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII

A little bit more done to this as the wing was covered in Uschi Van Der Rosten woodgrain decal and matt varnished. I had to order some oil paints for the underside colours so when I get a chance I’ll begin the streaky camouflage finish however being oil paint they will take a while toContinue reading “Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII”

Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII

I’ve now completely covered the wing in Uschi Van Der Rosten woodgrain decal and after cleaning up the excess the wing will be coated with matt varnish, when dry I shall attempt the streaky camouflage colours on the top and bottom using oil paint. Obviously these will take ages to dry so in the meantimeContinue reading “Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII”

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 white on the tailplane will need toContinue reading “Dragon Fokker E.V/ D.VIII”
