1915 Fokker Eindecker II in 1/32 by WNW. A Tribute to Max Immelemann.

This aircraft was the first with a working gear that allowed shooting through the propeller without shooting it off.
Therefore in 1915 began the Fokker Scourge that created much fear in the allied airmen for about six months until their aircraft caught up and surpassed the Fokker Eindecker. And the air superiority race continued until it ended in 1918. More to come.

The kit.

The machine gun and wires that warp the wings to essentially create ailerons are seen here, as are maps in holders on the wings to the right and left of the cockpit.

This Fokker Eindecker II # E37/15 was not only flown by Max Immelmann but also Oswald Boelcke who formalized the early rules of air fighting which are still used today.

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.
