Wingnut Wings 1/32 Fokker DVII (Alb)
By Larry Trout
Here is my first completed WW1 airplane & my first Wingnut Wings build. WNW Fokker DVII (Alb) in the markings of Richard Kraut of Jasta 63. Built to represent the aircraft before surrender to the Allies with it's original top wing & tail. I used Aviattic decals with 'brown tint' for the lozenge with the remainder of the markings are the kit decals. Added HGW seat belts, Taurus Models spark plugs, used wire for the spark plug leads & other engine pipes, wire & stretched sprue for cockpit details & the rigging. Haven't attempted turnbuckles yet, will add that detail on my next WNW build. Have 2 errors, I forgot to apply the 'datum' decals on the forward fuselage sides prior to the clear flat overcoat and I did not scratch the radiator support that is visible when the engine cowlings are removed.
