Mini Fokker cover and finish

Mini Fokker cover and finish

Made a little more progress on my build-along Mini Fokker project. The fuselage and tail feathers are now covered and ready to be glued together and hinged. All that’s left is the wing covering and finishing and adding the decals.

  1. Gerry, Did you ever finish this plane

    1. Hi Bill. sorry to say the project has been sidetracked for the summer. I am traveling so much that I had to set it aside for a while. I should get back to it by the end of September and then I will finish covering the wings and fly it before the snow flies! Sorry for the delay!
