Cutting Edge 1/32 Fokker F.1 Conversion First Look
|Date of Review||April 2006||Manufacturer||Cutting Edge|
|Subject||Fokker F.1 Conversion||Scale||1/32|

Here is a very easy conversion to make your next Fokker project different. This set replaces the cowl face and the ailerons from the Roden 1/32 Dr.1 kit with the larger ailerons and slightly different cowl face used on the Fokker F.1. 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!
