Eduard 1/72 Fokker D.VII (OAW) Weekend Aftermarket
By Matt Bittner
Since the release of the Weekend Edition kit of the Fokker D.VII (OAW), Eduard has also produced a couple of aftermarket sets for their kit.
Naturally, since Eduard is well know for their masks, they have released a set of masks for their Fokker D.VII. Not only will it cover the wheels, but it will also cover the small windscreen.
The other aftermarket set for the Fokker D.VII is - of course - a set of photoetch. With this set you receive pieces to add to the cockpit (some requiring some surgery); belts for the seat; small items for the engine; replacement control horns - with cables attached - for the control surfaces; gun jackets, sights and cocking handles for the Spandaus; gun rails for on top of the engine; a pilot's step; a prop boss; and other exterior pieces.
While producing an excellent 1/72 Fokker D.VII is definitely possible out-of-the-box, there can also be more added to any kit. In addition, using Eduard's masks will definitely take a little off your modeling time.
I definitely thank Eduard for sending these sets to review. They will definitely enhance the Weekend Edition build.
