Just finished up building one of Iron Mike's designs, the Fokker Dr1.

I had bought his plans and short kit a couple years back and just never got around to building it. Must say that I was very impressed with the quality of the wood and the laser cutting. The parts fit the plans absolutely perfect which is a first for me and makes building much easier than having to fudge things later on.

I used domestic tissue and nitrate dope for covering. I made stencils and airbrushed on the markings.

As we know trimming a triplane is no easy task and I hope I'm up to the challenge. Mike supplied some good tips on setting up the wings so I trust it shouldn't be that bad.
