|Pros||Simple correction for Roden's beautiful 1/32 Fokker Dr.1||Cons|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||OOP|
Here is a very easy correction to accurize your Roden 1/32 Fokker Dr.1 kit. This set replaces the cowl face with a beautifully cast resin cowling that is hollow-cast to accommodate the engine. The details on the cowling have been corrected to reflect the configuration on the production aircraft. The correction entails a simple parts swap. That's it!
The casting on these parts has been improved to minimize the 'edge' between the usable parts and their casting blocks. This new approach will significantly reduce the time and effort required to remove these parts from their blocks and get them 'cleaned up' for installation.
This set is definitely a 'no-brainer' for the World War I modeler and you may just have to buy a few extra Roden kits just to exploit the possibilities in details and markings from Cutting Edge!
My sincere thanks to Meteor Productions for this review sample!
