Eduard New Tool Fokker D. VII
« on: January 05, 2019, 05:20:40 AM »
I've just read the January Info newsletter on the Eduard website. I see they've announced a May release of their New Tool , 1/72nd scale, Fokker D. VII.
That's great news, in my opinion as I build in all the three main scales. Now if someone would just produce a New Tool Nieuport 28 in 1/72nd. I can only hope.

We are all victims of history!

a few details:

In principle, this will be a scaled down version of the 48th scale kit, but it will be modified to the point where the older and larger version will be mostly unidentifiable. As with our recent releases, we put quite a bit of effort into simplifying construction of this kit, and I think that fans of this scale will be satisfied along those lines as well.
The entire line of Fokker D.VIIs will feature revised lozenge patterns which will reflect the most recent research surrounding this mysterious item. The line of D.VIIs will open with the Fokker D.VII OAW, which I consider to be the most striking of all these aircraft. As with the 48th scale version of the model, most of these 72nd scale kits, except for the Austro-Hungarian MAG, will have two versions of the fuselage and in the case of the OAW, these will be the two last production versions. There is a third version of the OAW being planned as well, allowing the option of building Ernst Udetís famous red/white aircraft. As noted and to the contrary, the MAG version will offer just the one fuselage type, as there was just the one, but this kit will offer the relevant differences in the radiator and prop, including the popular four bladed type. The MAG will come out in October, it will be available at E-day, and it will also be released as a Limited Edition kit similar to the 48th scale item.Ē
