The German Fokker D.VII is counted among the best fighter planes of the
First World War. Its origins date back to 1917, when the Allies gained
air sovereignty with the S.E.5a and the SPAD fighters. To counteract
this, the German side asked the aircraft manufacturers to present
prototypes for single-seat combat aircraft for evaluation in January
1918. The design with the best overall performance would receive a
production order. The Fokker D.VII was the winner and received a first
order for 400 aircraft. A total of 3,300 DVII were produced and over 700
were in service after the end of the war. Especially the performance at
high altitudes made the Fokker D.VII a feared opponent.
Hangar 9 brings this legend from the First World War to life as the Giant-Scale ARF version, which with its remarkable scale details does justice to the legendary model of the Fokker D.VII. The model was professionally built to exact standards using lightweight balsa and plywood. The result is an ARF model that combines outstanding original fidelity with good-natured flight characteristics. Even the most discerning model maker will appreciate the high level of detail, such as true-to-scale machine guns, a true-to-scale pilot figure, cockpit details and 8-inch vintage wheels. The shock-absorbed main landing gear cushions most of the bumps on grass tracks. A Hangar 9 UltraCote fabric offers a finish that reproduces the exact colour scheme of the original. The Fokker D.VII is designed to accommodate a variety of 2- or 4-stroke internal combustion engines from 30 to 60 cm3 or brushless external rotors. The complete hardware for the recommended drive options is included in the scope of delivery, so that the assembly proceeds quickly and the first flight is not long in coming. A large cover facilitates maintenance and battery replacement and provides easy access to the components.
Whether this is your first World War I Giant-Scale model, or the next replica in your hangar, with this ARF version you have a Fokker D.VII that meets all your needs.
