[Eduard] Fokker DVII (Fok)

Kit 8132 represents a WW1 Fokker DvII (Fok) biplane in 1:48 scale.

There are a total of 78 plastic parts excluding the fret of photoetched parts and masks provided. To top it off, there is a good 6 pages of decals to represent the 5 marking options ranging from striking blue to reds and yellow.

The biplanes of the First World War are a joy to model as their designs and marking are flamboyant and beautiful.

Eduard's instruction sheets are in my opinion second to none in the industry, given its well written and researched introduction to its description of the units represented. The kit construction is well thought out starting from the engine in step 1 and ending with the exterior wing supports. The moulding is good though I wished that Eduard would bundle their sprue in separate plastic bags. There are some scratch marks to fuselage which needs to be cleaned up due to the abrasion between the sprues. Minimal cleanup is required as there is very little flash and what little ejection pin tabs on the fuselage are not visible.

The PE parts are standard Eduard fare and precoloured for the cockpit dials and seatbelts.

Overall, this is another stunning kit in Eduards well done line of WW1 planes. Highly recommended and can be obtained from HHQ in Kuala Lumpur.
