    Yes Thanks Marco, but as Ivan rightly pointed, the sculpting is no match to Mike Good's Voss unfortunately Sad

    Marco, Ivan, Joseph and whoever can help, I found this para in a review of the movie Red Baron on wings of honor website, which is a bit confusing to me scratch What are your views?

    In one scene Werner Voss is seen with a captured Bentley rotary engine which brings us this conversation:

    Manfred: "Where did you get that engine from?"
    Werner: "From a british pilot."
    Manfred: "He gave it to you?"
    Werner: "Not intentionally, I had to persuade him."

    In reality Voss equipped his Fokker Dr.I with a captured LeRhone from a Nieuport 17. <Rant On> Personally in the movie I think he has stolen this engine from Josef Jacobs Fokker Dr.I and it was a Clerget and not a Bentley as Jacobs Fokker was the only one I know of sporting a 130 HP Clerget engine during the war. With this engine Voss would have escaped the six S.E.5a that were jumping on him. We never get to see the epic battle between him and McCudden and his boys. Maybe Voss did not possess an English wrench and could not fix the engine accordingly. He then lost it during the dogfight. That's the only explanation I have why it took only six Brits to down one German. But it goes like a red line trough the movie: we never see the important dogfights of W.W.I. Thus we will never know the truth. <Rant Off>

    Le Rhône Rotary Engine (110 HP)
    The V4 prototype Fokker Triplane belonging to Voß was equipped with a captured Le Rhône rotary engine. The 110 HP engine was used in many allied aircraft to include the popular Nieuport 17 fighter/scout. By 1917 German manufacturing was having difficulties keeping up with her war needs and it was not uncommon to press servicable captured engines back in to service, especially an engine as reliable as the Le Rhône.

    In the case of Voß's triplane Fok. F.I 103/17 it was a Le Rhône, Type J, 110 Hp, s/n 3247. It was taken from a captured British Nieuport 17.

    Thanks Marco.Excellent reference if I decide on adding the cowling in the scene. Now I think I can do without the chain blocks and tripod and put the engine and cowling on the garage floor or on "strippi".
