Description

KK FOKKER D.VIII

The Fokker D.VIII was a German WWI fighter that evolved from the earlier Fokker E.V.

The E.V had suffered a number of wing failures and fatal crashes, but improved manufacturing techniques on the D.VIII resulted in the new aircraft being very agile and well-liked by its pilots.

The Fokker D.VIII entered service towards the end of WWI but following Armistice Day, most were destroyed as part of the post-war agreement.

YOUR KIT

This is a laser-cut replica of the original KK Fokker D.VIII kit and inherits many of the "design features" of the original print wood kit.

Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of "stick and tissue", that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing. Power is provided by rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight.

Free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or "trimmed". This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding.
