Default Lets see your WW1 Fokker's

I love the WW1 Fokker's.
I have three that are built, one in progress and a new one in the box.
Lets see pictures of what you have. They can be large or small, in the air, on the ground or on the table in progress.
If you had any particular problems in building or setting them up, how did you solve the problem??

I have a Great Planes Dr.1, a Flair 1/4 scale Dr.1, an 80 inch DVII I bought at a model auction.
I have a 1/4 scale DVIII kit from GTM in progress and just received GTM's 1/4 scale Dr.1 for my next project.

Ok guys and gals, lets see all your WW1 FOKKERS.

My D.V111 in progress.
The pilot and prop are from Proctor, the dummy engine is a mini kit from GTM using Williams Brother's cylinders.
It is powered by a Saito 170 3cyl. with an exhust ring from Keleo Creations.
Since the old rotories were newtorious for leaking oil, had to put a bucket under it, plus a tub of spare parts.

A couple of shots of the cockpit detail, they were also a mini kit from GTM.
I used Velcro to hold the seat in so I could get easy access to the servos.
Used elastic string to simulate the cables so I could see where I may need to put guides to keep them from rubbing, plus make sure they exit through the covering in the proper place.

I just so happen to be working on replicating a Fokker Eindecker III, only thing is, I will be using an already made ARF to do it with. The World Model SS60 will be stripped down then recovered with the cream white and silver coloring in areas to match the scale version, The Maltese cross will be added at all points to scale. The tail will be removed and altered to fit a split-level elevator I will re-manufacture a rounded vertical stab and rudder to match the scale version. The wing, using a large block of balsa I plan on carving out a cock pit and gluing it to the top of the wing in hopes it will look authentic, As far as the landing gear, it will be changed to a tail dragger but being its an 80" wing I don't think it will support that narrow main landing gear that comes with the scale, so I might have to use standard.

I believe World Models were trying to replicate the E III anyway so I figured I would take it even further.

The reason I am using an Arf was because I already had this plane but met its demise, the wing came out with no damage only purchased another fuse.

Once its under way I'll be taking pics.

I have a Flair DR1, which is now a static and I'm currently working on a Sterling DVII which I found at a garage sell, paid $20.00 for it. Very old kit still "new in the box" if you will. A lot of the lite ply has delaminated, but the rest looks ok. Balsa doesn't go "bad" does it? The plastic molding is pretty brittle also, what I ended up doing was painting some fiberglass resin on the back side of the parts, seemed to stiffen it up fairly well. Anyway, have most of the frame work on the fuselage, wings and tail feathers done. Will post pictures if you want when I get ahold of a digital camera!

Chris.

Here is a 1/4 scale D VI built by my good friend Al Newton. I did all the test flying of this one. The lozenge scheme is hand painted. It's powered by a G-23 Zenoah.

Here's a rare sight...a DR1 that's not all red!![:-]

It's from a Balsa USA kit, has a Homelite 33cc engine, and it flies great! (I hate landing it, though)

Great looking stuff guys!
Here's my (another non Red) Arizona Model Aircrafters Dr1. Lothor VonRichtofen's markings. Saito 56 powered and (as I found out last summer), a bit of a challenge (for my flying skills) on take-off.

Also my BUSA .90 Eindecker. Flown last season with an OS 120. Installing a Saito .80 at the moment (120's worn-out).

For more WW1 RC, have a look at our [link=http://www.bealmear.com/dawn_patrol]RC Dawn Patrol site[/link].

Yes the DR-1 can prove very tricky, truly the mother of all Fokkers!

Mike,

I found that you have to advance the throttle very carefully when taking off and be quick on the rudder. As you probably found out (I did), once the tail starts swinging, you're finished!!

BTW, I like the way you have the old markings showing through the yellow overpainting...very scale-like.

Yes Jim, your right, mine's the same way. I guess that's why I prefered to use grass fields instead of paved, the grass seemed to help prevent it a little more. Thank God for the wing skids! I wonder if the real one had that trouble!

If I had a dollar for everytime I wished the World Championships were flown from grass ...

I'm not sure exactly what was going on but, it was sure frustrating trying to takeoff from pavement, I only managed 1 of 3 flights and that one scored a zero on takeoff as I had to restart.[&o]

No issues at the trials ... off grass....

Chris, I coudn't even imagine taking off or landing one on pavement!![sm=spinnyeyes.gif]

I saw first hand that the full-size do have the same trouble. At the Dawn Patrol Rendezvous
at the AF museum last year a full-size one tried to attempt what looked like a three-point landing and started swinging the tail and tipping the wings (sound familiar?). It got progressively worse and then the wing skids really worked and it settled down, but not before almost nosing over. The pilot must have been really shook up after that!![X(] The only way they landed those full-size replicas (there were three) well was by doing a very neat tail-high wheel landing.

After seeing that landing I don't feel so bad now with my model.[sm=lol.gif]

Jim,
Thanks for the compliment. I just wish I could fly it as well as I finished it.
You are 100% correct on the take-off characteristics. My problem is that I have a very lazy and un-practiced left thumb.
Practice, practice!

I remember that Dr1 landing at the rendesvous. Wild! [X(]

You all have some great looking planes. I love the varity of paint schemes.
I've also had the same experance on paved runways, these birds are make for grass.
The Dr.1's also don't like cross wind landings eather.
Is anyone having Dawn Patrol flyin's this summer??
