New Wingnut Fokker D.VII Variant coming in 2nd Quarter 2017!

Recommended Posts

I can understand those who missed the Fokker boat the first time being excited, as it means they don't need to pay $185 on Ebay for a Fokker D.VII.

That assumes that all D.VIIs are the same. They are not. 

 

I was mildly disappointed that there was no 'Early' boxing in the first round because of the unique camo and markings they carried. But, did get 2 of the D.VII F kits since they were the apex hotrods of the line. And, I'll get a couple of these new 'Early' kits just to build one in the markings on the box art.

 

If and when their distribution ever gets sorted out, that is...

Hold on a second, D. My two Fokker built kits have those decals in them already. Is it a different pattern? I seem to recall someone saying that Dr.1s were green streaked over sky blue...

SWA?

Southwest Airlines.

We did get a raise, but my wallet will still ache because for me, when it comes to the D.VII, one is not enough! In the mid seventies I bought an Aurora, I think, D.VII with my allowance money and have been hooked on them ever since.

Jennings, the early was built early in the production run.

The late was built late in the production run.

Do I need to explain EVERYTHING to you?

 

 

What's the difference between a nurse anesthetist and an anesthesiologist?

Not a yuge difference?

"Yuge" is subjective. To paint any type Fokker D.VII as any other type of D.VII would require the same level of ignorance as, say, painting a P-51A as Gentile's Shangri La. 

 

Besides, Wingnut Wings is not producing specialized kits for people that don't know any better. ;)

Of course.

 

But I'd count a re-boxing with a different paint scheme as a minor production difference.

Then don't buy it. That way, there will be more kits available for those of us that do know the differences.
