This pair of resin items from Cutting Edge Modelworks is a pair of 1/32 Fokker Dr.I Early Ailerons for the Roden Fokker Dr.I kit.  The Roden kit provides good mid- and late-production ailerons for the Dr.I. However, a fair number of early Fokker Dr.Is carried the ailerons with extended-length counterbalances as used on the Fokker F.I prototypes. In some cases, one early and one mid production ailerons were carried on the same plane. This set allows you to model any of the early configuration Dr.Is.  

These are pretty straight forward items which are full of crisp rich detail to replace the kit parts.  The attachment points are thin and will be easy to deal with.  The trailing edge is ultra thin and tapered with the correct ribbing effect.  Light partially shines through the tailing edge on the thinner points.....simply lovely.

Resin casting is of a very high quality and all the detail is very well done with no air bubbles.  These resin items from Cutting Edge Modelworks will permit you to equip your Fokker Dr.I with the early ailerons. 

I would like to thank Cutting Edge Modelworks for providing me with this review sample.
