1/72 Eduard Fokker (OAW) DVII
« on: September 22, 2022, 06:57:16 PM »
Dear all,

Completed Eduard's (weekend edition) excellent Fok. DVII kit.  Brilliant fit on this kit - the only (likely me as the rest of this is superb) issue I ran into was carefully aligning the cabane struts to ensure a straight wing fit.

Built straight form the box and finished in the markings of Lt R Kurt Monnington, Jasta 18, Montoy-Flanville, France, August 1918.













Regards

Dave

Dave,

Very nice build.  The Eduard D.VII and the Arma E.V are probably the best two 1/72 kits available.  Both are a joy to build.

Thank you, ladies and gentleman

PJ - I've never built one in a weekend - not sure why they call these that other than to distinquish the fact there are no masks or PE parts provided.

Regards

Dave

Wonderful build Dave.  Jasta 18 birds are definitely noticeable!  I have a few of these Edward kits so maybe someday Iíll add a D-VII to my builds.  Hoping it looks as nice as yours.

I'm a sucker for a nice D.VII and this is a very nice one, great work Dave!

Famous last words but I'd give it a go with a D.VII. The DH.2 I have in the stash, however, feels like false advertising  ;D

Superb model Dave. The finish is, as always, top notch especially as you have used a hairy stick. Looking forward to seeing this at the weekend.
