Fokker DVI is one of my favorite planes. You can actually easily make it with Wow planes, since they took the body of an Fokker DrI and mounted Fokker DVII wings unto it but you will have to waste 2 planes for that. Reveresco actually got it as a model but I either missed it when I made my large order to them last year or it is a new one. It was actually rather good plane but most of them was sent to the eastern front anyways, one of the reasons was that the Germans always had problem with those engines, mostly due to bad oil. Some pilot however liked them since you get an amazing ability to turn right on them.
So since I was getting SRAM models anyways I ordered 2 DVI. And I decided to share how to build it with you guys
First I painted the wings white and put on Revirescos Lozenge camouflage stickers. I also made a small pilot out of green stuff and painted the body green (it will get matt coating later to get exactly the right finish and some other final touches).
I then glued on the lower wing.
After that it was time for the struts. They were not included and even if they would have been they would be to weak so I made some out of steel wire. I also noted that the blueprint missed some struts (I have a DVI made for my upcomming 1/72 project to compare and also a few pictures) so I added those too.

After that I fixed to upper wing and suddenly did my cameras batteries lost enough charge so I couldn't take any more pictures. Dang. Guess I have to do the rest work tomorrow. Oh, well. I still need to get lozenge cammo on the tail anyways.
So far doesn't it look that impressive but I think that it will look great once it is done. It is slightly harder to put together than a Skytrex or Reviresco model but not really that tough, hardest part so far was making the struts, each took a few minutes.
