Wingnut Wings 1/32 Fokker D.VII (Alb) in Finnish Service
By Gary Boxall
This is the Wingnut Wings Fokker D.VII (Alb) converted to an OAW built plane 1.D.357 which flew as part of the Finnish Airforce with Ilmailuosasto 1, Utti airfield, November 1923. Decals are from AML, sheet number AMLC2017 “Fokker D.VII in the Finnish Service.” The skis are scratchbuilt along with the new panel where the guns are normally fitted. Brass-tipped prop is from the spares box with a new windscreen fashioned from acrylic sheet, a radiator grill from RB Productions and the plane was painted with acrylics and weathered with oils and enamels.
For the colors I went with the recommended F.S. numbers that were on the AML sheet: 35045, 24098, 35526 and 10032 - matching them as best I could to the Mr Hobby/Tamiya range.
