So… Have I finally lost my marbles…?
I got the material for my dream project today.
A full scale replica of the propeller used on the Fokker Dr.I, made famous by the ‘Red Baron’, Manfred Von Richthofen, during WWI.
I have got the drawings from Achim Engels, a gentleman who built several WWI aircraft, from scratch.
The drawings have been redrawn in CAD software and printed in full scale. Each of the seven layers (4 walnut and 3 birch) will be cut according to the profile, thus minimizing the work needed to shape the propeller.
