"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.

"Excellent Value"
yardman.jeff
Built this model decades ago as a kid and am currently in the process of building it again. I like working in this scale size and wish it was more popular. Not too small, not too big. This can be a relatively simple build or a complex one if the rigging options are utilized. Will be doing rigged control surfaces this time, didn't do so as a kid...lol

 
"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.

 
"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.
