    So you're happy for this one not to burn or go boom then?

    How many times do I have to ask you chaps not to use the F word when Kyte is around. It's costing me a fortune in G&T.

    Neil, I thought yours was getting a little lonely in here so I fast-tracked one out of the factory.

    James would it be possible to post the pic of your plane, actual one it is based on. I want to get another couple but that is the only design I could find out there. Now with Rob's we have 3.

    Nice, I got a Fokker D2 in cammo but like the canvas one

    Well she has been sat patiently on my workbench since August so I thought I would give her something special and decided to paint her up in the colours of Lt Rauschke (LandFlugzeug 70) some may remember my Fokker E.III in those colours.

    As those were the colours of one of the main characters in my OTT Early Doors Campaign I thought I would transfer them to the this aircraft to give some continuity to the scheme and game.

    The model is a Shapeways Fokker D.I and the decals were homemade.

    Some great work on this thread! I have a pair of Fokker D.IIs on the way, this will help inspired me. One will be an overall medium blue, flown by Josef Jacobs. The other will be green and brown camo.

    Thanks all.

    David, thanks for the profiles. I have to make the decals for the Fokker id #s. I have a DIII in the queue so this will come in handy for Bolcke's planes. I like the Turkish one too. Might have to save a plane for that.

    Nice work, Peter. I like the darker hue best I think.

    Now I see why you're back on the right side in the upcoming CYM Campaign.

    Can't have these all be targets ...

    These were getting done no matter what side I was on. Now at least I'll get to fly one. Hopefully the one I fly won't be the target!

    I think we all stand a good chance of being a target of the AI.

    Your planes will be fun to see in the AAR no matter if they're targets or shooters.

    I'm skipping the Fokker D.I as I haven't used my Fokker E.III. So I will go from the E.III to Halberstadt D.III, which I'm working on at the moment. Never had problems with homemade decals sticking until these little Halbers.

    One last Fokker DI in German service. This one I added the rudder stabilizer seen in the attached profile. All details as in the plane above.

    I still want to add in the Fokker ID # but won't be able to do that until I can make a proper decal. Those will be added later.

    Skipping DIs I have DIIs and will get some DIIIs done for later in the campaign.

    I never paint or put decals straight on ARES models. I always coat them with a clear flat first. Haven't had any trouble since doing that.

    I was only ever able to get 1 Ares D.III. These were Shapeways. Thought I had put enough goop on them. And I should have got D.II as my scheme is for Jasta 25 which prob only had D.II. Anyway it’s not a Halberstadt thread.
