<h1><b>AERO</b> FOKKER D.VII</h1>
<p>The first in a brand new line of microkits from Microaces. The Fokker is designed from the ground up and is possibly the most detailed and realistic microscale aircraft of its type. The airframe is designed to take most ultra micro RC equipment found in similar sized RTF aircraft. Double sided printing directly onto foam ensures a light, low wing load aircraft with lots of character and predictable flight characteristics.</p><h1><b>HISTORY</b> REBORN</h1>
<p>Our love of aviation history ensures that the aircraft we choose to reproduce not only look fantastic on static display and in the air, but they also carry a depth of history that can be explored. Although introduced in the later stages of WWI, the Fokker D.VII was a seriously formidable combat aircraft. Designed through the lessons of its predecessors it was comparitively stable, fast and maneuverable and was quickly liked by the pilots who flew it.</p><h1><b>THE DEVIL</b> IS IN THE DETAIL</h1>
<p>Micro aircraft can be detailed too! <p>The Aero design sticks as closely to the original aircraft as it possibly can at this small scale. (14.5 inch wingspan in the Fokker's case). Not only are the surfaces adorned with detailed graphics and authentic weathering, but some of the main structures are included in the kit too. The Fokker boasts two Spandaus, the top of the Mercedes DIIIa powerplant and external exhaust pipe as well as manufacturers logos to adorn your prop.</p></p><h1><b>WEAR</b> AND TEAR</h1>
<p>But scale looks arent just about the external details. Wear, tear and weathering have always been a way to bring real character and life to a model. Making it look less like a toy and more like a serious expression of ones passion for flight! Using the latest in print technology we are able to lay down a durable, waterproof and scratch resistant print at 720dpi directly onto the 1mm Depron. We've also developed a technique to print on both sides of the foam, enabling great weight savings for the kit without compromising on the looks.</p><h1><b>KIT</b> AND KABOODLE</h1>
<p>The Fokker D.VII Aero Kit includes precise, laser cut Depron parts that are fully illustrated and ready to assemble, tough and lightweight laser cut polypropylene parts that add strength and detail to the model, plywood motor & servo mount, carbon fibre, neoprene cord for tyres, control rods and printed stickers for further enhancement of the scale look. The kit also includes a step by step guide to ensure you build it right!</p><h1><b>BEAUTIFULLY</b> RUGGED</h1>
<p>With all this detail and refinement you could could be forgiven for thinking that the resulting aircraft would be heavy and fragile. But with a flying weight of under 35g, the Fokker floats around, making it easily controllable on rudder and elevator and a delight to touch and go. However, should things not go according to plan, the low mass, combined with the use of flexible plastics in key areas, ensures there's much more likelehood of bounce rather than crack!</p><h1><b>FLYING</b> HISTORY</h1>
<p>Ernst Udet (26 April 1896 to 17 November 1941) was the second-highest scoring German flying ace of World War I. He was one of the youngest aces and was the highest scoring German ace to survive the war (at the age of 22).[1] His 62 confirmed victories were second only to Manfred von Richthofen, his commander in the Flying Circus. Udet rose to become a squadron commander under Richthofen, and later under Hermann Goring.</p><h1><b>FLYING</b> HISTORY</h1>
<p>Wilhelm Hippert (Iron Cross) was a World War I flying ace credited with eight confirmed aerial victories. By mid 1918 Hippert was flying a Fokker D.VII with a black and white checkerboard pattern on the fuselage, a blue nose, and the name 'Mimmi' emblazoned on the top wing in which he shot down a Dorand AR2 over Beaumont-sur-Vesle for his seventh victory. On 22 August, he claimed two French bombers, a Caudron R.11 and a Breguet 14, though he was only credited with the former.</p>
