Mini Fokker D-VII


Description: A .20-size WW I biplane with big appeal!

Designed by John Tanzer, this Mini Fokker D-VII is fun to build and fly. The Magnum .30 4-stroke is a fine engine that fits inside the cowl very well; only the valve cover and the muffler are visible. The model doesn’t use a firewall, and with the upper fuselage formers cut out and the last bay at the bottom rear of the fuselage left open, airflow past the engine and out through the cockpit and rear of the fuselage is very good. So far, the engine has not overheated.
