The Fokker E.V. was a German parasol-monoplane fighter aircraft designed by Reinhold Platz and built by Fokker Flugzeugwerke. The E.V. was the last Fokker design to become operational with the Luftsreitkräfte, entering service in the last months of WWI. After several fatal accidents due to wing failure, the aircraft was modified and redesigned Fokker DVIII. Dubbed the Flying Razor by Allied pilots, the DVIII had the distinction of scoring the last aerial victory of the way.

The giant scale FOKKER DVIII plan set is 1/3 scale and consists of three large sheets that clearly illustrate all structure. The FOKKER DVIII plan shows the installation of fixed wire gear, servos and generic 3 cu in engine and features two piece wing.  The basic structures use conventional “modeling” tools and materials such as balsa and plywood, and the techniques are straightforward; easily accomplished by anyone with previous model building experience. There are many online building threads at www.rcuniverse.com forums and www.rcscalebuilder.com  forums for Ron Weiss plans. Tech support is also available via email at www.ziroliplans.com or by phone 9:00 to 5:00 Mon - Fri EST 631-467-4765. The plan includes full-size templates for all the required parts allowing you to cut a complete “kit” before you start construction. If you don’t have the tools or time to cut your own kit Nick Ziroli Plans now carries laser cut wood kits for the FOKKER DVIII plan. The plans have instructions and building notes on the plans. If you choose an engine not shown on the plans you should have it on hand when you start construction to make any changes needed for mounting. Nick Ziroli Plans recommends covering the airframe with an iron on cloth covering such as Solartex. Nick Ziroli Plans has building and scale accessories available for the FOKKER DVIII.
