Fokker Triplane Build: Part 3

For the first time in a few weeks, I'm feeling like there is light at the end of the tunnel.

The five Jasta 19 triplanes, and Kirschstein's Jasta 6 machine are starting to take shape.

This past week has been mayhem...the hobby table has been a jumble of wings, tailplanes and half-painted fuselages. At this stage I was prepping the fuselage cross fields. Jasta 19 overpainted their iron crosses to make these markings blend in with the surrounding camouflage fabric, and create an even background for the individual pilot markings.

Here, I'm just starting to work on Krischstein's fuselage bands.

At the end of this week you can see that all the major decaling work is done...and there was a lot of it! Final assembly over the coming week, and then these six Canvas Eagles miniatures should be ready for the game table.

'Til next time!
