Six types of new B.E.A.M. 1/48 Fokker D.VII photoetch sets

Recommended Posts

These feature three dimensional open louvers on the engine panels. Separate engine access doors that fit into recessed openings. Multi part throttle quadrant, multi part floor compass, fretted machine gun jackets, ammunition chutes, seatbelt and shoulder harnes with optional separate hardware if you choose to use masking tape for belt material, instrument panel with separate switches, and on and on. Nearly one hundred different parts to detail every section of your Fokker D.VII. See the complete photo/text instructions at www.ww1aircraftmodels.com Go to the forum and click on Hints and Tips section. Click on Barry Berman's photoetch.

Choose from early Fokker built, late Fokker, early Albatros, late Albatros, mid production OAW, or late OAW. Each set contains two large brass frets(about 17 square inches total). The price is $12.50 USD which includes worldwide shipping. PayPal accepted at berman4@netzero.com Questions answered at berman4@netzero.com

Note: If you are building a Roden kit, you must sand down the lower wing roots. An overly tight fit to the fuselage will cause the lower wing to bend downward.

Tip: Use Blu-Tac on a cocktail stick(toothpick) to hold small photoetch parts for placement.

There is a very good build article of the Roden Fokker D.VII kit on Modeling(note one L) Madness by Dan Brennan. It points out a few areas that need some minor sanding for a proper fit. Also very good tip on an easy alternative method to align and secure the fuel tank. Well worth a look.
