    After a slow building season, I finally got one finished. Attached are a few pics of the Fokker V.1 from Krzychu74 over at mikromodele.cba.pl. The original was 1/100, so I did my usual downsize. Final wingspan came out to 2.25 in, or 5.7 cm.

    Thanks for the kit Krzychu74!

    I bet in real life these models are huge; it's just that you've got a cutting mat the size of a ping-pong table so the models just look small....

    Seriously, that is amazing work. Thanks for sharing the photos.

    Wow! The only thing missing is the human hair for stringers - but they may be too big for this scale!

    Amazing - nice job.

    Thank you all for the kind words.

    --Ken, I do rig my models. I use a .05 clear nylon thread. This Fokker
    did not have any rigging, but it does have the cockpit installed!

    I guess that shows my ignorance when it comes to early aircraft.

    What scale is this? 144th?

    V1. without stringers

    Hello!

    'V'1 is the shortform for "V-Verspannungsfrei" the german word for an airplane without any rigging and it's the first of them. V'1'.
    The Fokker V1 was the predecessor of the famous Fokker triplane.
    The Triplane was V4.
    Hi, Texman, excellent model.

    Best regards
    Roman
