Here are some shots of Robert's newest design, the Pfalz E-1. Emel Rose is building this and it's basically a variant of the Fokker E-III Eindecker.
The PFALZ E.I was first.
Then came the FOKKER Eindecker.
The EINDECKERS were simply copies of the successful pre-war Morane-saulnier monoplanes. In fact the only copies of these French design were made by Pfalz who entered a licensing agreement in 1914 to build the Pfalz E type .
As you can see in the pictures the modified Pfalz has 8 support wires per each wing panel instead of 2 on the Eindecker.
The horizontal stab and elevator are two pieces now.
The rudder is squared off a little larger area. The wing ribs are made of flat alum. bent a riveted together, like the full size DR1 .
