1/64 Fokker D-XX1 commenced 14/8/16- Completed 11/12/16

  Also on the list for a while and started at same time as XFT-1.

 I didn't check the scale until I was well into it. Works out around 1/65.

 I'll decide whether to do it as Dutch or Finnish later.

 Cheers

  Gordon

 Where the D-XX1 is at. needs some finesse on the engine and cowling.

 The simulated fuselage stringers disappeared under a bit of over eagerness with grey primer.

 Propeller from plastic ice cream container.

 Should be finished by Christmas .

 Cheers

Looking good Gordon! Nice rib feathering.

I like your idea of using the ice cream tub plastic for the propeller. My next model will be a 1/72 Halifax and I've been struggling with how to make the propellers. I'm nervous making a 3 blade prop out of wood at this scale but cutting them from plastic and even shaping them a little with a heat gun is a great idea.

 Needs further work on propeller and engine.
