Fokker scourge, 1:72

once again after a long time I feel like building a plastic kit again. There are still a few kits of WWI aircrafts on my stash. First I decide to start with a kit of a Fokker Dr. I from Roden. What a difference between the first model I did in the 80th. It was an Airfix kit with only a minimum of details (compared to todays kits).

It is amazing to see what’s possible today: engine, machine guns and cockpit interior are all there in this tiny little models. But I had another Fokker Dr. I to build, a Profipack kit from Eduard. This one was top-notch. The plastic parts fit excellent and they were cleverly designed. This was by far the easiest and best model to build; a real pleasure!

I have finished the Eduard kit over Whitsun. Ok, they are not completely done. Both kits are just assembled and ready to paint. But there will be soon another rainy weekend to paint them. That’s for sure.
