25. Fokker D.VIII
'FLYING RAZOR BLADE'
THE legendary Fokker E.V/D.VIII arrived too late to make a big impact on the first air war, but it has remained a firm modeller's favourite over many decades with several hyper-accurate flying reproductions also having been built in Germany and New Zealand in recent years. One of our most popular WWI German fighter references with over 90 photos, detailed plans and three colour profiles.
IN this 36 page monograph,Peter M Grosz provides unmatched data on the parasol-winged Fokker E.V and D.VIII fighters of 1918 with 70 archive photos, 21 close-ups and an authentic narrative that is a worthy historical account of this late war fighter. The content is enriched by Ian Stair's 1:48 and 1:72 scale general arrangement drawings that show internal fuselage and wing structures. This top-selling monograph also provides chapter and verse on colours and markings compiled by series editor Ray Rimell ,who also contributes three colour profiles, whilst renowned aviation artist Brian Knight GAVa brings the 'Flying Razor Blade' to life with a particularly vivid cover painting. 36 pages packed with reference that include unique interior images of the sole survivor in Italy during its lengthy restoration process.
Peter's Fokker D.VIII study has sold over 15,000 copies since the first edition appeared in 1991 and now numbers of this reprinted version are down to a few dozen copies. A third edition is not planned...
