The Fokker D.VIII was a parasol style monoplane fighter aircraft that entered service very late in WW1. It was issued to fighter units in July 1918 and shot down the first allied aircraft in the following month, it also scored the last kill of WW1. Some of the early production examples suffered fatal accidents which was the result of poor quality materials and construction of part of the wing assembly. Changes were made to rectify the problems and production and deliveries resumed in October and with the problems resolved the aircraft proved agile and easy to fly.
This is Eduard's Fokker D.VIII 1/48 Profipack kit and it looks very nice. The kit comes with a set of colour photo etch parts, wheel mask and markings for 5 German and Polish aircraft.
