Microaces Aero Fokker E.V/D.VIII Polish Livery Kit

£43.00

Flown by Lieutenant Stefan Stec 1919 

In WWI, Polish forces captured 17 Fokker aircraft of which six E.V versions and one D.VIII version were used in the Polish-Soviet War of 1919 to 1920. Lieutenant Stefan Stec earned the first kill for the Polish Air Force, by shooting down a Ukrainian Nieuport fighter on 29 April 1919.

History in the Making

In early 1918 Fokker produced the Fokker E.V parasol winged monoplane. Even though production versions employed the obsolete Oberursel Ur.II, the aircraft's low drag and light weight meant it was nevertheless fast compared to its rivals.

Microaces love of aviation history ensures that the aircraft we reproduce as kits look fantastic on static display as well as in the air.

The Microaces 'Flying Razor' comes complete with a vac-formed cowl and a spinning Oberursel Ur.II dummy rotary engine kit, that adds an incredible level of mechanical detail to this astounding model.  

The model also employs a linked aileron and rudder conrtrol system operating from a single servo. This ensures that the kit retains its distinct flat 'razor like' wing and provides a scale replication of the way 

NB. The dummy motor does require an elongated prop shaft for your PKZ3624 motor/gearbox or add a 'rotary ready' Microaces Motor/Gearbox.
