WINDSOCK BOOK BUILDING THE MENG FOKKER DR.1
This 2021 publication from Albatros Productions is on quality art paper and within its 76 pages there’s plenty of great illustrations and information.
Wingnut Wings instruction booklets were often considered by modellers to be the best in the world and the Meng 1/32 release instructions fell woefully short in that regard. So this publication, with its detailed input from Richard Alexander, as the closest we are ever going to get to a Wingnuts Fokker Triplane instruction booklet, with plenty of illustrations by Ronny Barr throughout.
The contents are packed with interesting and useful information, historical notes and modelling guides.
The perfect reference resource for large scale Fokker Dr.1 kits but due to the details covered, the contents are equally useful for detailing 1/24, 1/32, 1/48 and 1/72 kits. A timely and invaluable reference addition for WW1 enthusiasts and particularly useful for modellers especially those making the Meng/ Wingnut Wings or Roden 1/32 Fokker F.1 and Dr.1 kits
Spacial attention is paid to ’streaked’ camouflage and aircraft flown by The Red Baron, Manfred von Richthofen.
Verdict: Very Highly recommended. A ‘must have’ for WW1 modellers.
