    Well I'm also building a 1/4 scale Fokker D.VII for a fun flier. Its a 1/4 scale (almost all the planes I build are), from BalsaUSA. Its more of a fun scale, lines are off here and there but most people get the point!

    When its done it will be one of the Jasta 10 birds. One of the earlier Fokker made D.VII's. She should look something like this:

    Wuger, the engine will be a Zenoah G38. I've been flying my buddies with the same engine and it flies fantastic.

    Wow! I started a 1/32 balsa Spitfire a couple of years ago and haven't had the time to finish it. 1/4 scales is big! It's looking good.
