The Fokker D.VII-E.V Project 2013

Things have been crazy around the studio and I have not had time to post. I've got the collection of Fokker Dr.I, started a series of Fokker D,VI and D,II, I took a short break to update all my Fokker D,VIII and E.V. The old drawings were bothering me and I've had a few planes I have not done before. Today I wanted to post the Fokker E.V which served with Jasta 6. Next post will be E.V. which served in MFJ-II.

Winner of the April 1918 fighter competition, the Fokker D.VIII monoplane was delayed by production problems. Only thirty six of them entered service during the last weeks of the war. Equipped with an underpowered engine, the D.VIII was nevertheless an excellent fighter eagerly received by the German air service. Dubbed the “Flying Razor” by Allied pilots, it had the distinction of scoring the last aerial victory of the war.
