First Frog--a Fokker (what?)

Unread postby essezman » Mon Aug 29, 2011 2:34 pm

I ve not seen an example since I was given it, and I 'helped' to build it.

It was a short stubby thing in grey plastic ,sort of like the Revell 'Polikerpov' but with fixed wheels in spats (JU 87 like),with I think Netherlamds decals?Interested if anycane identify it?

(My first 'all my own work' was in the early 60s.A Penguin Blenheim in black plastic which looked a bit old then.I recall the underwing decal points were clearly marked--indented possibly. It was completely different to the later one with choice of gunpack and decals.)

Sounds like it was the Fokker D.XXI kit. I had one many decades ago.

Must have been the Fokker D21. The bag showed it having triangular markings.

That was my first one too. I remember painting it Brick Red which I had left over from an Airfix kit!
