For those World War One enthusiasts, we are proud to present our own design 1/5 Scale 66" 90 - 120 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.
The Armistice ending the war specifically required Germany to surrender all D-VII's to the Allies. Surviving aircraft saw continued widespread service with many other countries in the years after World War I.

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.
