Very nice Mike! I see the photographer has a shutter bulb in his hand. Can I presume you will be running a cable to the camera?

Hi Rob,
Yes that's the plan once everything is on the display base.

The twin aileron control cables (with turnbuckles) that are routed from the cockpit and fuselage to the underside of the upper wing (both sides) are done.
Also the engine exhaust and propeller are now fitted,

Mike

Isn't it though!! Look at the nice grain effect on the prop and the nut and bolt detail.

Thanks guys.
This is the first of two D.VII's for the final model.
I've just got one figure to paint and fit the wheels.
I'm fitting natural rubber o-rings to replace the pre-molded tyres, but they've not arrived yet.
Once that's done I'll post some completed shots before moving onto the skeletal model, which will also require some scratch building,

Mike

Hi all,
Anthony Fokker completed.
Just the tyres and wheels to do and this one is done,

Mr Fokker looks to be the iconic salesman with his sampler in hand! I just love that image. Excellent piece of work and I particularly like the vest paint work.

Mike,
In my humble opinion, that is the best figure you have done! Stellar work, that one. As Robert says, the subtle strips, shadows and shading on the vest, breeches and coat are really top notch. 3 Huzza’s.

Mike, what company made the Fokker figurine? It must hzve had a fair number of parts due to the model aircraft and it's amazingly detailed.

Hi Rob,
The figure is by 'Aviattic' and is simple to construct.
The model aircraft is 3D printed so no construction required,

Mike, if that model is 3D printed, with no construction, then I am even more impressed since painting between the wings etc is extremely confined space to work in. Wow!

Hi all,
Well this one of the pair is finished, so now its onto the 'skeletal' mode.
I decided to keep the two models displayed separately, so the 'skeletal' model will be displayed on a mirrored base only,

Mike
