Mike, I'm hesitant to ask, but what sort of aftermarket nuts are you going to attach to Mr. Fokker?

'What sort of nuts' - no, you've lost me there, but knowing you I'm guessing there's a joke in there somewhere yep

Hi Rob,
Just so we remember what it looks like yep

I've applied the 'Aviattic' linen effect lozenge to the first Fokker D.VII now.
Under the decals, although it's difficult to see in the shots, is pre-shading.
I've yet to apply the kit decals and weather it all in,

Mike

Hi all,
The fuselage sides and top decking had a brown glaze applied, but nowhere else on the aircraft.
I've added that and now I'll add the personal and national markings,

Hi all,
The engine with radiator assembly is now fitted, along with the cockpit coaming panel and the lower wing.

looking very nice Mike. Is the white tail plane area all paint or decal?
Do you have an image of the decal sheet?

Hi Rob,
The white areas are airbrushed paint.
The lozenge is all 'Aviattic' decals with Wingnut decals on top.
The kit also supplies 5 sheets of lozenge and rib tapes, which I didn't use,

Apart from final weathering, the fuselage front end is done,

And a fine front end it is. Superb work as always.

Hi all,
The rigging used is 0.08 mm 'Stroft' and 0.12 mm 'Steelon' mono-filament (fishing line).

The pre-rigging is done for the rudder, elevator, ailerons and undercarriage cross bracing.

Mike;

If it's not too much trouble, could you identify which is the 0.08mm and which is the 0.12? possibly repost the pics with an arrow to identify.

Also wondering if you apply a drop of glue to the short end of the line and then pull it into the tubing to make the seal. I would think that might be a clear way of doing it or maybe you have another approach.

Best Regards
