Fokker DR.1 Triplane by DigitalTargeter Feb 10, 2013

Featured Thing!

Description

My interpretation of the legendary plane of the Red Baron. Fully equiped with Oberürsel engine, spandau machineguns and ofcourse tri decks of wings and appropriate maltese cross'

Hopefully it will bring joy and and lots of airplane noise to your desktop :)

A worthy enemy of the Fokker is in the making, either a Sobwith camel or a RAF SE. 5a

The model isnt made to an exact scale of the original, but it resembles the original as much as possible.

i just posted a spadau machine-gun for a bigger fokker... have a look

OK, thanks for that. Will be keeping an eye out for your next bird...

Im not exactly sure what you mean with the wheels? There is no need to mirror the gun, since the spandaus were mounted with the ejection port in the left side, afaik. Currently i dont have time to go through all my drawings and reupload a new model, sorry!
The real plane had a steerable skid in the back, but my model dont.

Thanks for the reply! The adversary is on its way (it has been on my desktop for since march i think, im just lazy!)

Instructions

Rotate the various parts to fit your printer, all parts are designed without need for support and to minimize warp.

My parts were printed with Faberdashery filament on an Ultimaker. Parts were sliced with a combo of Cura and Netfabb.

Beware of the 3 wing parts, make sure they lay flat on the printbed, and they are printed with only 20% infill and reduced top and downskins to prevent warping.

Print 4 of 10-29-10016, these are the same parts need for wing support.
Part 10-29-10014 must be made both in the version uploaded and in a mirrored version.

All parts are glued together, once printed the positions should be self explanatory, else feel free to ask!

Hi there
This looks great - I can't wait to print it. I have a few questions first. I see the wheel is not a solid - the base seems separate from the rest of the part (not a problem, just thought you might want to know). There is only one machine gun - so it needs a mirror print. I'm assuming the "handle" bits at the back of the gun face inwards, towards each other?. But the real question I have... Is it possible to provide parts that do not have the "print pads" - just the proper part? (Just thought of one more question - was this model intended to have a landing skid at the back?) Many thanks - it's really a beauty. Look forward to it's adversary...
