If you want to treat someone, or yourself, to a very special Christmas gift, you might want to consider this. Fred Murrin, well known for his very accurate World War I aircraft reproductions, is currently finishing a very accurate Fokker D.VIII for Brian Coughlin in New York. The fighter is complete with printed lozenge, hand stenciling and brushed wing finish, as well as intricately detailed Spandau machine guns, ammo chutes and boxes. In addition,it features historically correct cowlings and a highly detailed static replica of a 110 hp Le Rhone rotary engine.If fitted with an airworthy engine, the Fokker will be fully flyable.
