1917 Fokker Eindecker E111
Model Airplanes are a passion.  Actively building and flying radio control airplanes since the age of fourteen,  many models, from small funfly's to turbine jets, have come and gone, but this is my favorite.  Maybe because it has a family history and that I wish I could have been on the front lines with  "Hans - Joachim Buddecke".  Unfortunately he was flying for the wrong side.

This model of the Eindecker E 111 has has a ten foot wing span.  The wire rigging is functional and all turnbuckles, gauges etc. were turned on my own lathe.   The wing warping from the original was converted to ailerons, and I can interchange the tail skid for a tailwheel depending on whether I fly off of grass or pavement,other than that, everything else is sport scale.  Plans were scaled up from three views.
