Banana Plane

Another go at the Revell Fokker E.III...this time in gaudy yellow...about as historically correct as a Machine gun at the battle of Zama but I like the look of it. (and I  finally got my entry in for " Plane month" :-D )

  8. Even attempting rigging is impressive - well done! And what's that about there being no machine guns at Zama?

  12. Thanks :-)
    Rigging is strangely annoying and satisfying at the same time...you don´t want to do it...then you do it once and don´t ever want to do it again...but you think, "I can do it better this time" and so it goes on. It´s Not as hard as it looks...said the actress to the bishop.
    Merry X-mas

  13. You have to visit the RAF in London! It is two massive halls packed with hundreds of WW1/2 Cold War planes. Always a pleasure to read your blog! Merry Christmas! :)
