I've got many bases of our hobby covered. Have a couple of PAU Extras for IMAC and general fun flying. Been messing with Helis along with Foamies for 3D and indoor flying. Have a Top flight P-47. All I was lacking is a WWI plane till now. I'm also getting tired of the 2 day builds on ARFS. Was looking for a challenge that would occupy my time. Something that I couldn't finish in a short time. That is how I settled on a WWI plane. My favorite WWI plane is the Albatross. The only ones that I could find were in the 1/3 scale size. That is just to expensive along with hard to transport. Since I couldn't find a 1/4 scale Albatross I settled for my second favorite. The Fokker D-VII. This thread is intended to be fun. If your building one of these then please feel free to post your pictures and comments here. If you're not building one and you have comments or questions that's OK also. Most of my friends will find a way to derail this thread anyway. That's ok also. One of the most interesting parts of scale building is the History pertaining to the plane or the time period. If you have any info on such things then share it with us. Looking at the box of wood. this is going to take a while so lets get started. So far I have the plane kit and two machine gun kits. I should have opened up the plane first cause when I opened up the machine gun box I thought " What the #@!! is this. I was expecting plastic molded parts. Yup It's definitely a builders kit. Nothing looked damaged. As soon as I can clear off the building bench I'll lay out the plans to see what I got myself into.
