Description

This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit which includes some resin parts.

Adapted from Wingnut Wings:

The legendary Fokker Eindecker, armed with a machine gun which was synchronized to fire through the propeller, made its first official kill on the August 1, 1915. It was a 80hp Oberursel U.0 (license-built 80hp Gnome) powered, wing-warping Fokker E.1 flown by Max Immelmann, and it marked the beginning of the "Fokker scourge."

Inspired by the April 18, 1915 capture of Roland Garros and his Morane-Saulnier Type L Parasol fitted with a forward firing machine gun (using armoured deflector plates to protect the propeller from 'serious' bullet damage), the Germans set about coming up with their own version. Rumor had it that the 25 year old Anthony Fokker created his own interrupter gear in just 48 hours after being inspired by the capture of Garros, but this is undoubtedly a myth. A mechanical interrupter gear had been patented in 1913 by Hans Schneider of LVG, but it was not until Fokker perfected it, or a similarly inspired design, that it worked sufficiently well enough to be employed in combat.

This kit includes a highly-detailed 18-part 100hp Oberursel U.1 engine, and four resin pieces to build a 54mm tall resin Max Immelmann figure.
