Cutting Edge 1/32 Fokker Dr.1 Early Ailerons First Look
|Date of Review||April 2006||Manufacturer||Cutting Edge|
|Subject||Fokker Dr.1 Early Ailerons||Scale||1/32|
|Kit Number||CEC32174||Primary Media||Resin|
|Pros||Simple backdate for Roden's beautiful 1/32 Fokker Dr.1||Cons|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||OOP|
Here is a very easy correction to backdate your Roden 1/32 Fokker Dr.1 kit. This set replaces the kit ailerons with beautifully cast resin ailerons that were larger as used on the earlier Fokker F.1. The backdate 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!
