    I had a couple of Galoob, yes Galoob DR1's and they are 1/144th So I thought I'd get out the paint and make a couple of ace's. Oops, Sorry for the plane on the stand backwards.I was trying to get the shot and the plane fell off the stand and was hastily put back on!

    Not a brand name I'm at all familiar with, but in any case, a nice paint job on each of them.

    I'm assuming these were from back when they did the Micro Machines line maybe? I wish they still did those. I've got a ton of the "Star Trek" ships that they did that I used to use for RPG/Starship combat. Too bad I didn't know about these (& wasn't into them then)

    I have always liked the insignia on that plane, and yours is particularly crisp.

    The repaints look good. I'd love to see a couple of photos next to a Nexus DR.I too though.

    Great idea Chris.
    It has always been a bone of contention about Manfreds all red Fokker. Now you have the choice of which one of the three paint schemes to field.

    Not to bad. A little thick in the wings and tail surfaces, but a little filing might sort them out with much trouble at all.

    That's exactly what I did. Use a small file and smooth the edges... or paint with a fine brush! Nice... "Das Phantom" aka Wayne

    Awesome! I sure wish Ares would so something in Jasta 18 livery. I was J18 Kanon Fodder in online game Red Baron 3D aboout 15 years ago. We had Albatross, Dr.1 and DVII in these colours.

    Here are a couple of little Fokkers that I painted a while ago - Shapeways models with 1/144 Direct (I think) decals.

    I do like the look of those two Nigel. They are very individual in their paint jobs and especially the decals. I never thought another red Tripe could be so effective.

    Thanks Rob, the decals were a pain though, especially the crossed swords one & the falcon one. Both were too big for their fuselages, which I only discovered the first time when trying to move them into place. I hate cutting down decals when they are wet and removed from their backing! (I have changed my mind on the brand of them - they are not "1/144 Direct" but "Y-Kraft".)

    Very neat bit of repainting there Gunnar.
    What did you do to achieve the mottled effect on the fuselage?

    Rob,
    Thanks, it's a dry brush technique I have used for decades.. lol. but effective.. I like a few others better on here.. and am thinking of trying a more patient hand on the next batch.. I have 3 planes I am painting up for Jasta 19 and that top wing is all about the Fokker factory paint job.. so I am hoping for some good results.. One is for Crashx and 2 are for myself..

    Thanks for the info Gunnar.
    For all my years of painting, I had never done cammo until I started Wings planes, so any tips are always gladly accepted.

    Here is my August Raben Dr.I. (along with a J18 Fok D.VII)
    I think it must be the most popular repaint so far. Must be about 6 or 7 in the posts so far.

    Well Barry, it's striking colors and relatively easy to paint. Makes for a successful recipe! I too will one day get around to doing this Jasta.

    Boney,

    Nice Dreideckers! You have solved a long-standing mystery for me... You have helped me ID a apint job I did on a Dr.I... Ltn. Hans Pippart. I saw a picture of a model someone built andliked the paint job, so I coppied it but couldn't identify the pilot. Couldn't find the source of the pic when I tried researching it. Now I know. Thanks. BTW- what colours did you paint yours, I used a deep purple and a golden yellow, with white struts.

    Hi Chris, another possible version of this aircraft is a black fuselage , but I left it in standard colours.
    Don't know if you are aware but the decal set from Dom gets a brief explanation sheet which helps with placing the decals and a brief explanation as to the plane too. Well worth getting if building up a unit.

    The way I do my colours, overall a revel Grungrey, dry brush Olivegreen and then dry brush GW foundation Iyunden sun. Tails were PS paints lemon yellow and decals Doms for pilots and stripes from 1/144 direct
