Thanks.. Yeah I was wondering the same thing. I used Vallejo game color bloody red followed by some thinned Tamiya smoke on the ribs. I was pleased with how it turned out

Beautiful!  Love the paint tone and sheen.  Very, very nice.

I'm about to use game color for a mini-cooper- did you airbrush?  How did you thin?  First time using them

Thanks,

John

 Keavdog, yeah I airbrushed using a 2:1 (2 being paint, I used Vallejo’s airbrush thinner). They lay down very nice, I think you will be pleased.

Very nice Fokker!! I didn't know they had lap and shoulder harnesses back then. I thought it was mostly a rope for the lap. Maybe I need to recheck my history? Indifferent

In any case you sure turned out a beauty.

You know you may be right. These PE parts came with the kit but I guess we can’t always trust that can we? It didn’t even cross my mind until I saw you mention it but I do believe you are correct. Oh well..Oops

Looks like I was the one who was mistaken there fella.

Checked some references and it looks like they came with seat belts. My apologies good sir:

Just as a purely friendly FYI...the era of 'rope as lap belt' passed pretty quickly. Once a pilot or two had nearly slid out of their cockpit during an energetic bank in combat maneuvering, they realized they needed something a bit more secure.

The Germans were the first to use shoulder harnesses on a widespread basis, fairly late in the war; the Allies didn't seem to catch on (for the most part) until just before (or into) WW2.

Truly excellent triplane build!
