Hi all, thinking of having a go at the SFM Fokker DVII Kit (48" span) @ £90 plus p&p has anyone built one of these as I cant find any reviews. Pete

Hi Pete, how are you progressing with it? Was thinking of putting it on my Xmas pressie list.

Evening gents, did either of you progress any further with this kit? I have just got mine this week and made a good start (upper wing built). Very impressed with how well it all seems to go together; hope it stays that way through out the build!

I built one of these a few months ago - went together beautifully! Flies well too, although due to pants weather, I have only had half a dozen flights..

Good to hear! I have completed the build of all the wing surfaces and they went together easily and no complications.

Have printed my own lozenge onto tissue paper and then doped it up over the undercarriage wing as a tester and it seems a pretty good alternative to painting by hand. How did you cover yours? Will probably use a mixture of tissue and Oracover depending on my final colour scheme.

What setup have you used, IC or EP?

I just used hk film. Didn't want to invest a lot of time in case it did not fly...

Fair enough, but based on your experience so far, I'll chance mine flies well too

I did the review of the kit for RCMW a few months ago, yes it's a nice model, a few scale discrepancies, but it looks good and flies pretty well too.

The kit stickers are pretty poor though and don't adhere that well to a tex covering.

Great what issue was it and I'll try to find it? Yes, the stickers are a bit of a let down but I'll do my own i think.
