The Great Waldo Pepper Fokker Dr1

Happy Holidays!
Anyone know where I can get some good color stills (or 3 views) of Ernst
Kessler's Fokker Dr1 from "The Great Waldo Pepper"? My wife surprised me
with an Arizona Models Dr1 ARF for Christmas, and that color scheme has
intrigued me since I saw the film in 1975.

Thanks

Don't know about the pictures, but I went to grade school with Scooter (the
little boy with the retriever who got gas for him).

Have you tried looking on Google "Images?"

Re: The Great Waldo Pepper Fokker Dr1

After the movie was on TV the other night, for fun I tried to search
for Ernst Kessler (quite a common name, it turns out <g>) but I could
find no sites that had anything to do with the movie (except reviews,
sales, etc). But I'm sure you've been down that road.

Two options, rent the DVD and play it on your computer's DVD player
and capture some shots.

If you don't have those capabilities, rent DVD (or tape) play it on
your TV and take some pictures with either a film or digital camera.

True, these will not be of the highest quality, but should be enough
to allow you to replicate color scheme for your model. I assume you
don't need three views for documentation as a scale plane And that
raises a question, does a fictionalized plane qualify as a valid
subject for a scale representation? Was that DR-1 a fictionalized
plane since obviously it existed for the movie?

Personally, I would not make a black plane as I would no be able to
follow it and would re-kit it quickly.

Another possibility is to go to www.google.com and click on images in
the bar above the query pane. Wait for it to become highlighted and
then type in the subject you wish to find pictures of, if you haven't
done so as yet.

Mike --

Try dropping a snail-mail letter to Universal City Studios, 100
Universal City Plaza, Universal City, CA 91608. Address it to the Publicity
Department. I wrote them some years ago when I wanted some stills of the
original Standard J1 that Waldo flew (No, it was NOT a Curtis JN-4 Jenny).
Then sent me some 8 x 10 stills, as well as some color transparencies. You
might check a search engine to verify the address.

Re: The Great Waldo Pepper Fokker Dr1

Bill,
That's a good idea with the DVD, thanks. His plane was yellow and black
(large checks) so that would be easier to see I'd think.

Thanks Ed. That's the first thing I tried. No luck.

Re: The Great Waldo Pepper Fokker Dr1

I just watched the movie again myself. The Fokker is more overall black than
I remembered. I agree that it would be tough to see....

Re: The Great Waldo Pepper Fokker Dr1

Have you seen that there is something written across the top of the
elevators?

I did this scheme a few years back on a small tripe(baronette)... Good isn't
it. I couldn't make out what was written My sons German teacher gave me a
translation of Can you see me now? which seemed appropriate.

The 1/4 scale one has been on my 'must build list ever since
good luck with yours

Like to see the pics will e-mail you separately.
