Hi all,
I'm now working on the next model and thus far have nearly completed the cockpit.
I still have to add the pilots shoulder harness, which will be attached to the seat mounting frame through the additional linen 'wind break' behind the pilots head,

No prizes for guessing which aircraft it's for,

Mike

It looks very Fokker D.VII-ish to me. It also looks amazing Mike.

As I have inside info I will keep it to myself. As Lou says, amazing!

Looks fab Mike was going to say DR1 or EV but the front gives it away not a rotary so more like DVII

Anything in a 42 Regular? Or an irregular, if there is a significant price savings.

10% off on the one with the back shredded by a tank’s tracks. I’ll throw in a dusty fedora ... and maybe a whip.

Heh he - You two should be writing comedy scripts clapping
I'm building two aircraft (one stripped and one complete) and yes, it's a Fokker D.VII.
Maybe I should have stuck to the thread title I was going to use - 'A pair of Fokkers' dance

Sandbagger, there is no need for this kind of language. We know very well what we are.
Looking forward to the build updates. Cheers!

HEY! I resemble that remark! If I wanted this kind of verbal abuse I'd go back to church.

Hi all,
The additional linen baffle (wind break) that was fitted to some Fokker aircraft is done.
The shoulder straps passed through slots is this baffle and down to be attached to the cross bar of the seat frame bulkhead, which had at the top the standard linen baffle.
The coloured shot below is from the Canadian restoration of a war prize Fokker D.VII. It was comprised of parts from different Fokker D.VII aircraft, including OAW built Serial No:6506/18, 8318/18 and 8502/18 and was partially restored in 1963.
The B/W shot is of a similar baffle fitted to a Fokker DR.1.
Mike

Looks like some dastardly Hun broke his nose on the windshield.
Mike, what is a wind break for? So that the rear fuselage doesn’t “scoop” the air out, or so that there is no backdraft and the German pilots didn’t have to wear those girlie-looking scarves?
