Wayne Holden's 3/4 Scale Fokker DR1 Project:

(Kit By: Airdrome Aeroplanes - 929 NW Road 1571 - Holden - MO 64040 USA - ph 816-230-8585 Email: rbaslee@peoplepc.com)

When presented with the possibility of a First of its kind fit between a ¾ scale Fokker DR1 and a Rotec R2800 Radial there was a fair degree of excitement generated, and the level grew on seeing the award winning work that Wayne had been involved with in the past.

The two examples a Hawker Hurricane and a Jüngster Biplane (see left) speak for themselves; it was therefore no surprise to see the quality of the DR1 that Wayne has built.

Fokker DR1 is ready for the Rotec R2800Having recently taken delivery of an engine we will be looking for frequent up dates as the project moves forward...
