Fokker E.V/ D.VIII

Today I started the cockpit as the Dragon one is far too simplified. Using 0.50mm Evergreen styrene rod I've begun the construction of the fuselage framing which will be verrrry delicate, I'll have to strengthen the joints with superglue otherwise this will be 'fun' to handle during painting.
The plan is to use Aviattic lozenge decals for the interior fuselage sides and Uschi Van Der Rosten woodgrain decal for the triangular plywood fuselage pieces. The tubular steel fuselage frame was painted an olive green but strips of lozenger fabric were wrapped around some of them so it will be interesting to try and do this in 1/48 on styrene rod that is half a millimeter in diameter, the things you do for laughs.....
