I thought it had been a while since I built a Bi plane and this one I have had my eye on for a while.
I like this plane because it is different, well it a Fokker D VII so it is not that different just the decals and story behind it.
At the end of the first world war not all the Bi planes were handed over.Some were put in sheds and stored away by their loving pilots, but three made there way (smuggled) to Finland to be part of there training "fleet".
Two crashed in 1920 and the last one was taken out of service in 1924.The used ski's and the normal wheels.
|Not a lot to add about this build as I have already built one,but I do like these simple little kits.|
|I tried masking off the camo scheme but that went tits up so I did free hand, which is not bad after seven bottles of beers!|
|When I first bought this kit on EBay for £4, I received it without ht e decals.I was going mad calling them a load of robbing ba#$ards.After contacting the bloke he sent me another one with the decals and said keep the other one, top bloke!!!!|
|Well after clearing out the room I found I had about seven more Bi planes to do so expect more!|
Cheers for looking, Rich.
