My build with my son slowed down a bit but we are closing in on the end. I finished up the final construction and took him out to paint it. Now, what color would you pick for a Fokker tri-plane? Red, right? Well my five year old son had a different opinion. He wanted dark blue to be the color and I wasn’t going to try to change his mind. After all, it is his airplane. I grabbed a can of Dark Sea Blue from the drawer and he painted his first airplane. I touched up a few spots when he was done but he did a great job.
As for decals, I scrounged up a few to make it “look cool”. It will in no way represent a real life airplane. And that is ok with me. As long as my son is happy, I’m happy.
