Reproduction of rudder from aircraft no. 425/17
Jasta 11, Manfred von Richthofen
A Czech customer ordered a rudder in airworthy condition and a piece of linen fabric with serial number from the last Fokker Triplane flown by German ace, Richthofen in March 1918.
I obtained a drawing and the production could begin. The frame is welded of 11353 thin-walled tubes and covered with linen fabric. The fabric is stitched on the ribs and doped. I used this opportunity to build two rudders, while the second one will stay in my shop, next to Anthony Fokker’s poster.
Rudder from a French fighter aircraft no. 1059
Escadrille no.15, Paul Bergeron
It’s an old project from 2013 when I was beginning with the propeller production. A French customer asked me to create a reproduction of Bergeron’s rudder, with one side covered and the other revealed. The construction didn’t have to be airworthy, so you can see that some compromises were done. Now I would build the rudder the same way it was made in 1917.
