Kit PD-08 Fokker D. VII is the best Dime
Scale kit available today. A classic old Comet design combined with the best
laser cut 4-6 # contest balsa parts, 6-10 # balsa strip wood, LaserCal™
markings, and Esaki red tissue, to make this kit ready for competitive indoor
and outdoor flying.
The Fokker D. VII first appeared over the World War I battlefield in May
1918 and quickly showed its superior performance over Allied fighters. With its
high rate of climb, higher ceiling, and excellent handling characteristics, the
German pilots were able to score 565 victories over Allied aircraft during
August 1918. Designed by Reinhold Platz, Baron Manfred von Richthofen, the
famous Red Baron, flew the prototype, designated VII. The Baron found the Fokker
easy to fly, able to dive at high speed quickly yet remain steady as a rock, and
had good visibility for the pilot.
This kit includes a full-size rolled CAD drawn plan, building and flying
instructions, premium laser cut balsa parts, hand-picked competition weight
balsa strip wood, FAI rubber, Peck nose bearing, EB propeller, wire, laser cut
balsa wheels, laser cut bond paper, LaserCal™ markings (precut from Esaki
tissue using out laser), and Esaki tissue in red.
