Product Description
This is a full-color 1:144 3D print of the Fokker D.VII of Lt. Hans Kirschstein of Jasta 6.  Kirschstein claimed his striking paint scheme made it harder for the enemy to take aim at his aircraft, calling it the "optical illusion".  Kirschstein scored a remarkable twenty-seven victories in a four month period in 1918.  He died in a crash while being "chauffuered" back to his aerodrome on a Hannover CL.II by a fellow pilot who had never flown an Hannover before.

No painting is necessary -- this model comes printed in full color, ready to use.  It comes with an integral flight peg for mounting on game flight stands (not included), which can be carefully removed with a cutting tool, if desired.  The peg is designed for a fairly tight fit; you can file it down slightly if you prefer a looser fit.  The model does not come with a flight stand, maneuver deck, or plane card.  You can find an unofficial plane card for this plane in this paint scheme at https://linen.miraheze.org/wiki/File:FokD7-Kirschstein-card.jpg.

Material choice: High-Definition Full Color has a smoother, satiny surface and deeper colors; Full Color Nylon 12 (MJF) makes a less expensive alternative, with a rougher, matte surface and less deep blacks.  Both are robust materials and fine for gaming.   Attached here is a picture that shows the difference between the surfaces.  "Matte HDFC" choice means the prints are spray-coated in the factory, and the difference with the coating is subtle.  You can find more material photos and comparisons at https://www.wingsofwar.org/forums/showthread.php?35581-Material-HDFC-vs-Full-Color-Nylon-12-(MJF).

If you are willing to prepare and paint models, you can find an inexpensive single-color print of a Fokker D.VII at  https://shpws.me/Smn6.  Plane statistics and gaming information may be found at https://linen.miraheze.org/wiki/Fokker_D.VII.   Please see this notice for information about fixing slight warping of Shapeways prints:  https://poeland.com/Shapeways/shapeways-warping.html.
