"This Fokker is a mixed bag"
polockman (Lagro, IN)
This kit does have it's flaws but yet it can produce a good looking result. The kit's fit and finish are OK. There was a lot of plastic flash from the molding process so be prepared for a lot of clean-up to get parts to fit well and look good. It is a Skill Level 3 kit, which may be a little over-rated unless you add the flap and strut rigging options with the supplied thread. Others have mentioned the decal silvering on the lettering decals, which I also experienced even though I applied them over glossy paint. Also the poor fitting tail decal can be dealt with by just painting the tail gloss white before applying those to decals - that gives you a lot of flexibility in working those decals into an acceptable position and then blending them smooth with Micro-set.

"ancient Fokker"
kajoe55 (Oklahoma)
I have been modeling for some time, having built this kit when I was a kid. I recently purchased a new one and was surprised to see Revell, Venice Calif, 1957 stamped inside the fuselage. The kit is also stamped 1981 on the landing gear plane at the very bottom. So, Revell must make good kits considering; a. Richthofen flew this in 1917/1918, b. The kit was originally make in 1957, c. I'm building one in 2017. Had some minor fit issues with the machine guns and if you don't clean up the flash, you'll have other fit problems during assembly. The decals had some silvering and despite my best efforts I couldn't eliminate them (the weight table and aircraft identification) and the tail decal doesn't line up correctly and is oversized so have some Micro Sol/Set. Rigging was easy as was the overall assembly. I have it a good rating but unless you want to spend a lot this is an excellent model to try you hand at WWI aviation. As always, have fun.

 
"Great value"
3rdslow411
These planes were flown in many colors, so get one and go wild! For the money, you will enjoy the detail and ease of assembly. Engine and wing detail is actually kinda cool. Cylinder detail is surprising. Watch the mold lines on the cowl for a nicer fit. Nice weekend project, it doesn't get any more fun! Easy kit for the youngsters as well!

 
"Good value for money."
BlucherFamily (Overland Park, KS)
This kit is typical of Recall in offering great value for money. There is some over flash especially in the fuselage pieces, but this is easy to deal with and once done the pieces fit well together. The instructions are clear and the build relativel smooth. I enjoyed building this aircraft and was pleased with my result.
