Microaces Aero Fokker D.VII 'Sachsenberg' Kit - Limited Edition

£43.00

Flown by Gottard Sachsenberg 1918 - Limited Edition Kit

Kit now includes colour printed Assembly Guide.

The Microaces Fokker D.VII kit is designed from the ground up that builds into a great flying and realistic looking WWI micro scale fighter biplane. The air frame is designed to take ultra micro RC equipment found in similar sized RTF aircraft OR Microaces own standard Flight Pack. Double sided printing directly onto foam ensures a light, low wing load aircraft with lots of character and predictable flight characteristics.

The aircraft this particular model represents, was flown by a 31 victory ace, Gottard Sachsenburg, who commanded the world's first naval air wing, the Marine-Fliegerabteilung. After WWI he founded a commercial airline, was an anti-Nazi parliamentarian and a pioneering designer of hydrofoils.

History in the Making

Our love of aviation history ensures that the aircraft we choose to reproduce as kits not only look fantastic on static display and in the air, but they also carry a depth of history that can be explored. Although introduced in the later stages of WWI, the Fokker D.VII was a seriously formidable combat aircraft. Designed through the lessons of its predecessors it was comparatively stable, fast and maneuverable and was quickly liked by the pilots who flew it.

Limited Edition Kits

Now and again we have reason to create another livery of an existing kit. It may be we find an intriguing new colour scheme or want to honour an historic pilot of note.

A limited edition run usually means no more than 100 kits will ever be produced, so the kit is a rare and collectible item that not every RC pilot will hyave in their inventory but at no extra cost to you.
