From Legendary Australian scale designer Gary Sunderland we are proud to produce the 1/5 Scale 65" 90 size Fokker D-VII.
The Fokker D-VII was Germany's most famous WW I aircraft, and around 3,300 were produced in the second half of 1918. In service with the Luftstreitkrafte, the D-VII quickly proved itself to be a formidable aircraft.
We have altered the construction of the main wing spar to simplify the build and better align with modern building practices. Full details of the new wing spar arrangement is shown in the CAD drawings.

We are happy to make up a complete wood kit for you, including all of the additional wood materials listed. Additional wood pack cost for this kit is NZ $159.20 or NZ $185.90 for the wood and metals.
The laser cut short kits include all of the shaped parts in balsa and ply which would normally require the builder to cut them from sheets. Items such as formers, wing ribs and other shaped pieces are all precisely laser cut. This leaves you to purchase only the sticks, spruce or balsa sheets you need to complete the kit, some of which you may already have on-hand.
All kits are proudly made in NZ! We hand select our wood stock for each kitset from the best Balsa Wood from Papua New Guinea and European Plywoods.
* Note that the picture of the complete aircraft is indicative of it's completed appearance. The kitset requires building and supply of all finishing materials & hardware.
