I always enjoyed the design of this little plane. Special Hobby captured the beautiful lines of Fokker´s monoplane and made a nice kit. Fit is like almost all limited run kits, but overall detail is impressive. The tubular structure of the interior is well represented. Panel lines were al recessed and the fabric texture of the rear airframe and tail is well done. The little engine is a kit by itself. It took me a while to finish despite the simple camouflage. Weathering was kept under control, just to show the nice surface details. Everything was painted with tamiya acrylics, except the engine cowling ring that received a coat of alclad II. I experimented some fabric weathering and liked the end result, but there is some field to expand this technique.
