The Fokker D.VII was a German World War I fighter aircraft designed by Reinhold Platz of the Fokker-Flugzeugwerke. Germany produced around 3,300 D.VII aircraft in the summer and autumn of 1918. In service, the D.VII quickly proved itself to be a formidable aircraft. The Armistice ending the war specifically required Germany to surrender all D.VIIs to the Allies at the conclusion of hostilities. Surviving aircraft saw continued widespread service with many other countries in the years after World War I.

This is the second publication from the “Legends of Aviation in 3D” series. The Fokker D.VII was one of the most successful feats of engineering of World War I. Designed by Reinhold Platz and wheeled out in the summer of 1918, the D. VII proved itself to be an indispensable part of the German fight. This fantastic new title from Kagero contains more than 160 historic photos and 175 of the highest quality 3D renders that illustrate every detail of the plane. The engine, cockpit and much more is shown from many different angles and views which gives you a chance to explore the plane in a way you have never imagined!


“This is one neat book on the Fokker D.VII. It will be of great interest to modelers and aviation enthusiasts alike.”

- AMPS Indianapolis

“It has been a while since I enjoyed a book as much as this one. It strikes a perfect balance between telling the story of the Fokker D.VII, and showing how to get the best out of the Wingnut Wings kit. The supporting illustrations, drawings, and photographs are well chosen, with 50+ contemporary black & white pictures, some of which were new to me. Best of all are the photographic sequences of the two builds, offering information and inspiration in equal measure. If you are interested in modelling the D.VII, particularly the Wingnut Wings kit, then this is just the book for you. Highly recommended.”
