Here is a build feature by Claudio Kalicinski (Kalt) of Roden's 1/32 scale Fokker Dr.1 kit. Claudio won the Aeroscale Model of the Month March contest with his wonderfully detailed and painted model.

I agree Kalt! I can't imagine one that would look better than your build. You're definitely an inspiration for all of us out here.

Thanks guys and gal! .

The Fokker is sitting too lonely on my shelf.....I'm about to start a companion for it: a Hobbycraft (revised edition) 1/32 Sopwith Camel but I'm still waiting for the Part etched set to arrive. What can I say, I'm infected with the 1/32 virus.....

Best regards,

Claudio

Beautiful job on the Fokker. Excellent finish with just the right balance between the colourful "camouflage" and the subtle weathering.

Thanks for sharing - a well deserved MOM win!

Claudio,

Your Fokker looks awesome! How did you paint the streaking? What was your base coat? What colors of oils, etc.? I'd like to have the same finish on my 1/48 Eduard Dr.I.

Thanks!
