Fritz the Fox's Model and Skinners Reference Guide


For those of you who would like to paint or skin your model airplane like one of Fritz's airplanes, this reference guid should provide you with all the information you need. Many of the markings below are transparent PNG's, so skinners can cut and paste them into their graphics when needed. Have fun and show me your work when its done...I'd love to showcase it on fritzthefox.com!









Note that, in older copies of Fritz's cartoons, the WW2 Luftwaffe planes bear their historical swastika marking on the tail. The remastered versions of the cartoons no longer display a swastika, but substitute humorous graphics instead. This is because Fritz is a cartoon fox and therefore has no political affiliation. And also because he was banned from a school by someone with considerably less sense of humor than is considered normal.




Notice how the pawprint is often incorporated into the camouflage pattern. The Me110 did not dispay any distinct markings other than the shark's teeth and a funny tail marking in the cartoon, but I would paste "The Fox" nose art below the cockpit if I were to build a model of it. It was presumably obscured by the engines. Most of Fritz's planes wear reasonably accurate camouflage colors, although sometimes changes were made in consideration of the limitations of the animation process. Had it been technically possible at the time, for instance, I would have used the mottled camouflage more typical of the the Me262 instead of the simple two-tone color scheme.




Fritz the Fox himself tends to wear whatever uniform is appropriate for the aircraft he is flying. He nearly always wears his signature goggles. The best paint color for Fritz's fur is Testor's Burnt Sienna.
