    Hello everybody,

    indeed those Fokker E.III-Models of Card Plane are very nice and easy to build. I tried to build the 381/15 of the Turkish Aircorps 1916 and I think it looks quite good ... especially the colors and marking ar interesting. You don't need to be the Red Baron to fly a red plane.

    Some other built you can find at www.kartonbau.de .

    @Richard:
    Nice built E.III's ... congratulations.

    Best regards

    René

    Fokker E. III Turkish Colours

    Hi René,

    A very nice build indeed - and a somewhat unusual colour scheme, too.
    You are the second (after Richard Schulten) in our unofficial 'Fokker building squadron' to complete a full-size model - congratulations!

    All the best,
    Bengt :roll:

    So, the big ones are finished! And some mighty fine builds they are. As I did one (only smaller!),
    I like to think that even the "not full size" fit into the FBS!

    Ray,

    Of course you belong in there too - I forgot all about your wonderful precision micro model. My mistake.
    Could you post a photo again, please? I´m sure there are more modellers who would like to see it now.

    I stand corrected (as many times before),
    Bengt :wink:

    Bengt, I finished mine, but haven't done the wiring... do you accept mine like that for the squadron?

    A Marvel Worth Repeating

    Thanks, Ray,

    Now we can behold this beauty again - it´s really something else.
    Breathtaking.:roll:

    Gerardo,
    I guess you´d have to ask the 'squadron leader' Jim Krauzlis about that . . .

    Bengt :rofl:

    Bengt, Jim... I have to better myself. I will hold until everything is OK, if not, the plane is going to stay like that, and I don't like an unfinished model.
    Will post pic soon.

    The pictures alone really motivate me to make this classic, despite my huge lack of interest in vintage aircraft. However, just a question. How do you make your engines with that much detail? Do you do your own parts?

    Thanks Chris!
    Yes, this is one of the several (14) models discussed in this thread. You can find them all here.

    Build one, and you can be a part of the Fokker Squadron!

    Well, I had it in mind, Chris. But I have something else under the sleeve.

    Thanks!
