History in the Making
Our love of aviation history ensures that the aircraft we choose to reproduce as kits not only look fantastic on static display and in the air, but they also carry a depth of history that can be explored. Although introduced in the later stages of WWI, the Fokker D.VII was a seriously formidable combat aircraft. Designed through the lessons of its predecessors it was comparitively stable, fast and maneuverable and was quickly liked by the pilots who flew it.
