Fokker DVIII

 

I made some progress this morning.

fokkerBuild2aI am ready to make the curved upper deck. I hope to get that done tomorrow.

fokkerBuild2I also wanted to show you this little tool I made. I needed something that would cut the fins in the engine cylinders.

I used an old sawsall blade and sharpened it like a parting tool. I added the handle and rough shaped it on the lathe. A necessity tool – not a beauty queen.
