The Germans went on to abandon the monoplane in favour of a new and deadly generation of biplane fighters, based on the lessons learned from these vicious engagements and influenced by the success of the French Nieuport.

The excellent eight-page instruction folder gives part colors and four-view color markings for four aircraft. A fifth scheme is black and white. The aircraft in all five schemes have tan fabric surfaces and a swirled-metal cowl and forward fuselage. The decals are of high quality, but the top red stripe decal for Ernst Udet's aircraft has its instruction-sheet designator 19 printed over the decal.

The fuselage interior is exceptionally well detailed, so it takes a lot of time. It is easier to attach the engine faceplate, Part C33, if you omit the motor-mount parts which you can't easily see, anyway. Filling is needed for the areas behind the pilot's seat and on the dorsal seam.
The lower seam is covered by a strip of photoetched-metal stitching. Use only the rear landing-gear fairings parts B7 , not the front as the instructions call for, or the struts will be too wide.

I painted exterior fabric parts with Testors Acryl white primer, then Testors Acryl Panzer interior tan, but I had some trouble with adhesion of this combination. Metal-colored surfaces were primed with Tamiya's light gray surface primer, then painted with a mix of Polly Scale flat aluminum and neutral gray. I replicated the swirled effect by hand with a Sakura Gelly Roll silver pen. Decals went on well and responded to Micro Sol solution.
I had to trim off the rudder post to get the rudder to sit down properly in the tail-skid assembly. It is a good idea to use a short metal pin on each side to help anchor the wing panels to the fuselage and prevent droop.

With its photoetched-metal details, the engine is a gem and fits nicely in the cowl. The machine gun has a photoetched-metal sight and perforated cooling jacket.
I attached the model to a stand with rubber bands so I could first work on the bottom, then the top. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. This item may be a floor model or store return that has been used. See details for description of any imperfections.
