Default Fokker E.III

Here are some in tool renders of the Fokker E.III, work in progress.

A lot of work to do, but coming along nicely. I spend three months in Germany building the real thing, so have some real hands on understanding.

The next part of the gun mechanism, the internal part of the gun to operate the trigger.

Next update: Gun safety wire, turnbuckle and trigger and yoke.
.

.

.
Also built a whole series of bolts, screws and split pins, needed but dull.

At some point I'll have to do the bracing wires, and yes they will not be fun, just like the real thing. At least these I can bend.
