The Fokker D.VIII was a rare monoplane design of WWI and regarded as one of the best fighters of the German Empire in the conflict. It provided a stellar blend of survivability, firepower and adaptability within a sturdy rugged airframe. The type appeared in the final months of the war in 1918 and was produced in approximately 295 examples by Fokker Flugzeug-Werke GmbH of Imperial Germany. The D.VIII was a further evolution of the Fokker E.V design which exhibited structurally-related wing issues due to poor construction methods. The E.V design was revised and became known under the designation of D.VIII. This highly prefabricated kit belongs in the "super scale competition" models category. Once finished, the entire airframe construction is extremely light and clean but still able to withstand high loads. The manufacturer uses the latest construction techniques including Laser CNC cutting to achieve high strength and low weight. Each part and every detail are meticulously made.

The Fokker D.VIII monoplane fighter has the distinction of recording the last air kill in the First World War.
