PRE-Flight Model For Free Download - Fokker Eindecker

Posted on Mon, 04 May 2009 09:00:00 GMT
Designed by Dutch engineer Anthony Fokker, the Eindecker or "monoplane" in English, was the first plane to be fitted with a gun/propeller synchronizer gear which allowed its machine gun to fire thru the propeller arc. So advanced was this feature that it started the "Fokker Scourge" where the Allied planes became "Fokker Fodder" for the early German Aces.

Although the Eindecker would probably not pass any current aircraft standards, it was the very first "true fighter" aircraft - the less advanced aircraft it preyed on were merely scouts armed with conventional hand-held firearms. It was used to great effect by a number of German luminaries like Boelcke and Immelmann, and became a true Terror of the Skies above the World War I warscape.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the Eindecker has moveable control surfaces and a realistic Oberursel rotary engine (in which the cylinders rotated with the prop - resulting in a difficult airplane to master).
