    Very nice. I love WWI models, but my favorite scale (1/72) they are too hard to work with. Well done.

    They look great mate! Lothar Von Richthofen's Dr.I is especially effective!

    I never knew that when the DrIs were delivered they were doped in a dark olive green and this ended up being having a streaky uneven look to the fabric. Love it when some one picks this up. Great work!

    I didn't know that, Njaco! I thought they were deliberately painted like that.

    I didn't either for 30 years of modeling until I found 2 references that the streaking was the uneven doping! Quickly stuffed my expertise! :)

    thank you guys:)
    As for DR1 camo the airoplane left the factory painted in that way, the upper surfaces were painted with dark-coloured dope applied by bush to achieve a streaky effect. The brush was not recharged after after each stroke but used for consecutive applications until dry, and the width of the stokes would indicates the use of a brush approximately 8 cm. (Fokker Dr.1 Datafile Special ).:)

    That's interesting mate, thanks! I'll take that into account when I do my own Dr.I in Lothar's markings.
    I have two Revell 1:72 kits of the Dr.I, one will be Manfred Von Richthofen's machine for my girl (-she likes the red paint scheme!) and the other for me.
