Model / Toy of the WW1 Fokker D VII Bi-plane.

This project has been constructed entirely of one construction grade 2×4 from Home Depot, in preparation for the Lumber Jock’s multi-purposed 2×4. winter awards 2008.

The engine and exhaust have been painted black and the German crosses were printed on water transfer decal paper using my ink jet printer. The plane is finished with spray lacquer.
Project was built with the aid of the Toys and Joys plan-86.

Top Wing Span 24 “ Chord 4.25”
Bottom Wing Span 20” Chord 3.25”
Fuselage Length 21” Width 2.125”

That blows my idea out of the water. Oh well, it is the spirit, not the winning.

I start work tonight on mine.
