"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.

"One awesome Fokker!"
Baron619
This is a rather large kit in comparison to most. This adds to the display value of such a kit, however, for it's size I think it could be a little more detailed. On the plus side, this plane comes with a rigging guide that's fairly easy to follow as well as two ground crew members and a pretty good representation of the Red Baron himself. The engine is nicely detailed and with a little time and effort the propeller can be made to look like wood. All said and done I would recommend this kit for any WWI enthusiast even despite the unpopular 1/28 scale size.

 
"A great model and easy to put together"
kandj172
A simple model already molded in red plastic. It has detail and the figures are relatively easy to paint with brushes. Decals go on nicely. I would recommend a flat finish before and after putting the decals on. Great display model, too. I have mine in my office, where one of my client's kids stole one of the figures, the Pilot, naturally.

 
"Great value"

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!
