(Laser Cut) -
FAC Dime Scale
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 competition
weight balsa parts, LaserCal™ markings, and red Esaki 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, hand-picked competition weight laser
cut balsa parts
and balsa strip wood, FAI rubber, EB propeller, thrust button,
wire, laser cut balsa wheels, laser cut bond paper, LaserCal™
markings (precut by us from Esaki tissue using our laser), and Esaki
covering in red.
You will need a hobby knife, fine
sandpaper, building board, and glue.
