    I've recently finished the der Kampfflieger Fokker E.V (D.VIII) stripdown model. Here are some photos of the finished model.

    It's a crackin little model. A very clean laser cut kit, with some very small parts. As you can see, the result is pretty good.

    I did do a build thread which can be seen on the UK Paper Models forum. UK Paper Models supplied the kit and the service I've had from them has been faultless.

    Hereis a link to the build thread

    Great job Mark! I've always liked this type of model, being able to see the bones so to speak.

    Hey Mark_1984,

    Great Job :D

    I have one of these down to just the wing to do :p I got sidetracked badly on this one :( Your build has me thinking how close I am to finishing it up.

    Fokker E.V/D.VIII 'Flying Razor' Stripdown Model 1:72 Scale

    Hey Mark,

    What an amazingly clean and good-looking build. Another historically interesting and very fine model by 1:72 scale WW I airplane card model master Roman Vasilyev. I am just going to have to buy it very soon . . .

    This is my Nr.1 WW I favourite airplane - the fast and agile 'Flying Razor' D.VIII monoplane, which got off to such a bad start due to poor workmanship of the all-wooden cantilever parasol wing.
    According to legend, it is supposedly the plane with the last 'kill' in WW I, before the end of the fighting and the armistice in 1918.

    A truly historical model and a very precise build indeed in this scale - superb work.

    All the best,
    Bengt :thumb:
