Paul, the paint job turned out fantastic on your Fokker! Udet's scheme was very loud for a warplane. He clearly wanted everyone to know he was around.
Looking forward to seeing the finished result.
Here's how my build was left from last time.
Most of the major building and paint work for the interior is complete. This is probably the most complex part of this kit (save for the rigging!) and with it out the way the rest should come together fairly easily.
I still have to build the machine gun and add wiring to the engine. i believe I can add these after the fuselage is together which will limit the risk of accidental damage while I build and paint it. I'll have a play around with that.
One more thing to add before that are the control cables running from the stick and rudder, through the cockpit and out through two small holes in the rear wall. I'm going to use guitar E strings (009 gauge - the thinnest my local music store sold) as I needed something with a little rigidity. My first attempt with uschi thread was a disaster!
Big question is what to do about the highly reflective nickel coating. Do I black the string with permanent marker or burn it off with a candle flame?
I have a long 6 week holiday coming up I'll use to get a few projects completed and a big chunk off the Rumpler.
