1/72 Fokker D.VII are the Revell and Esci kits the same mould?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have an Esci Fokker D.VII which is fairly crude and I was wondering if the Revell kit is any better or are they the same mould?

Best regards,

Joe

I don't know if they are from the same mold but if I recall correctly the Revell kit is pretty crude as well. I would say that if you are looking for a more accurate and detailed kit in 1/72 Roden or MACdistribution(available from Oxonians plastic fantastic) are your best bets or move up to the superb 1/48 kit from Eduard.

As I recall, they were not the same but the similarities were noted when the ESCI kit came out.

Of all the Eldon/ESCI kits, the Fokker is probably the closest to the Revell kit, but a bit sharper moulding IIRC.

It's easier to build than the Roden kit, although it's a bit of a mish mash of Fokker and OAW built aircraft if I recall correctly

No they are not the same moulding.

Both tools date from the 1950s so both are rather basic and show the age of the mould.

Jolly good choice! :thumbsup: The eduard kit really is rather excellent. I have five more in my own stash to do :mental: Detail and fit are excellent and the decals are excellent quality as well.
