Default D VI

Glen Torrance Models has a book on the D VI that could have 3views. You could go from there. Email him at "[email protected]".

Default Here comes LEO OPDYCKE to the rescue again....

Dear Hangar Rat and fellow RCU'ers:

The PIPE here once again-and here's LEO OPDYCKE also, to the rescue again with his WORLD WAR I AERO "Master Materials List", at ... and for the Fokker D.VI he's got:

Fokker D.VI
*set, Schuler dwgs, in WW1 AERO #85,86, 87. $36 for all 3 issues.
*set, 27 detailed 11 x 17" Schuler dwgs. $30 fr WW1 AERO.
*plate, 22 x 34", Peanut Scale model, Kelley dwg. $10 WW1 AERO.
*structural dwgs by Harold Fischer. 17 dwgs c 16 x 21 ", $50 fr WW1 AERO.

I can attest to the FANTASTIC quality and detail of the late John Schuler's scale drawings for the Fokker D.VI, as I've been a LONG time subscriber to Leo Opdycke's great WW I AERO quarterly publication, I actually HAVE copies of WW I AERO issues number 85 through 87 right here at home!

Also, if you end up getting those WW I AERO reprint issues 85 through 87, there's ALSO the Windsock Datafile number 84 on the Fokker D.VI available for $16.25 before shipping from Hannan's Runway, among other places-and THAT Datafile is authored by none other than the recognized AUTHORITY of WW I German aviation history, Peter Grosz in New Jersey!

Just contact Leo Opdycke at:

Leo Opdycke
15 Crescent Road
Poughkeepsie, NY 12601

and at the main link at you'll even see his HOME PHONE NUMBER showing in the heading at that page!

Good luck in getting your Fokker D VI scale drawings from Leo-and get a hold of Windsock Datafile 84 while you're at it-you'll be GLAD you did!

Yours Sincerely,
