Home built Fokker DR1

One of Mission4Today’s regulars is in the process of building a DR1 replica. Build quality is looking pretty darn good to me. Here is a peek at the frame of the plane .

See the rest of the build process in this thread at M4T.

I don’t know if any of you know “Chill31” from back in the Rise of Flight era. He built a 4/5 metal replica and originally bolted on a small Lycoming or Continental. It was a ■■■■■ to fly I recall him saying at the time. He has since found a le Rhone rotary and has been flying successfully since. I don’t know his impressions since replacing the motor.

Looks cool, I’ve always been tempted to get a nice kit from here https://www.airdromeaeroplanes.com/

If I had the time or space that is.

E-III for me, mostly because it’s an ultra light, but not sure i’d fit well in a full sized one let alone 3/4 size

Me too. Especially after reading its entry in Janes 1919 where it was suggested that the Pup would make for a superb personal pleasure craft. After all the horror in aviation’s infancy yet the author was impressed enough with the Pup to dream of hedge-hopping in an age of horses, coal dust and peacetime.
