    Quite the colorful flight of Dreidecker, Felix! I also agree that the whole wing edge issue leaves me a bit flat - on my repaints I paint the wing edge, but I haven't gotten around to doing it on all my planes yet...

    All the best,
    Matt

    Great advancement. Are the stroke decals of the same pattern? Manfred's seem almost white, but I guess the light source is the cause? I like the Lothar Variant the most.

    Cheers Florian,
    Yes, the stroke are decals. Pattern is the same, but they are two color variants: Lothar's are more olive-brownish, Manfred more olive-greenish.

    I have stockpiled mehusla's 1/144 direct decal sheets for similar use; just haven't had time to get to them yet....................

    You've made a grand job of that pair, Ezekiel!

    Mehusla had some really good decals. It's a shame he is not in business anymore

    Default So Many Fokkers...

    Having considered it for a while decided to paint the Nexus MvR Dr.1 from the deluxe set I picked up recently into a personal scheme previously used on a captured Nieuport 17 & Fokker D.VII:

    Peter Pig pilot figure used - the one with the bomb but with the bomb cut away it looks like he's shaking his fist at the enemy...Or something like that !


    Black, white & GW Blood Red used; tail rounded off & repainted.

    I doubt it, it's featured on the forum since 2012 but matters not, they all look good in the scheme.

    Good colour match though I'd have kept the markings of the new one as the originals were wrong.

    Not quite. 425/17 only had Balkankreuz for less a a week, IIRC only a day or two; the Iron Cross version only needs the white fields replaced with red to represent most of 425/17's life. I'm looking for an Early Ares to correct myself so I can set my Nexus original aside to preserve as a collectible...

    The white fields are incorrect - that was the point - and although it certainly had the standard iron cross markings he only got two victories with that machine the day before he died when it would have had the balkenkreuz.
    Check out Tusekine's collection sale DB, I think he had some Nexus MvR's listed.

    That's the rub, Nexus 425/17 has a higher value to collectors, so I'd rather leave it for them. Thanks for the headsup, though.
