ATT32340 (tailored to the Roden kit) "Blue Max" Fokker DR.I hand-painted movie lozenge decals and 3d printed conversion set "the Baron"
Of course, "the Baron" has to make an appearance in such a film and one of the two replica triplanes was re-painted in his blood-red scheme for the filming of his scenes. This aircraft appeared again in "Richthofen and Brown" among others (decorated slightly differently) and was stolen twice (!) before being discovered as a plundered wreck and re-united with it's owner. It is currently being restored.
Friend and talented CAD artist, Mike Swinburne, designed the complex conversion set parts and beautiful Siemens Halske SH14 engine. I must take this opportunity to thank him again for his endless patience and attention to detail in it's creation.
A little bit of care and clean-up is required with these parts, which can be painted and glued with CA just like resin.
The Roden kit has been eclipsed by the (not perfect) "Mengnuts" version and so this concept gives the nostalgic modeller an opportunity to rescue it from the "shelf of doom" and really let it take the spotlight again!
