ATTRES 049 1/24 Fokker DR.I cowling with enlarged cooling holes
Several Jasta 14 DR.I's survived into the hot Summer of 1918 and as result had their cooling holes enlarged in-the-field to prevent the engine over-heating. Jasta Boelcke also adopted this practice.
A different shape of cutout - and a side shape - are inscribed on the inside of your cowling. These shapes can be realised by careful filing.
Cowling design by Mike Swinburne.
These enlarged holes are version 'A', slightly smaller and less 'kidney-shaped' than another version.
