No surprises here at all. The 100th anniversary of Richthofen`s demise approaches. Good time to finally build some red triplane.
This is where I am so far:

Gee, I`ve forgotten to write it in the topic - it`s Eduard`s 1/48th kit.

Very nice. I like the worn look you've achieved.
Can't wait to see more.

Cheers guys! Another update. Try as I might it`s really hard for me to get some depth out of that monolith red. Even though there is some pre-shading ( you have to believe me ) I used oils and will probably use some more...

That's really nice Filip. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
Does the kit come with the figure?

Pretty sure my lhs has a couple of the Dr.1's in stock at the moment. May have to pick one up.

Filip, that is some beautiful work! And yes, you did succeed in getting some dimension into that monolithic RED paintjob. Just the right amount, in fact!

Nice work! The Baron would be proud. Good timing too with the 100th anniversary of his death coming up next month.
