Bill Davis Here are a few of the modifications that I have done so far. First; I have filed an opening in the fuselage spine for the rear window. Second; the kit cowling was smooth, the Finnish version had bumps around it. I used an Airfix Blenheim engine. The PM Cowl is on the left, the Airfix cowl in the center is un-touched, the finished one on the right required A lot of sanding. The propeller also required reshaping; the PM is on left, modified Airfix in center, stock on right. I used a Special Hobby roll over frame as a pattern, and scratch built a copy out of Evergreen styrene. The copy is light gray.

Ville Siltanen Good luck with the build.You got a lot of work ahead of you.Keep it up.

Bill Davis I bought this model a few years ago, before I knew about its issues. I am going to have to rework just about all of it.

Gordon Sørensen Bit of work, but sounds like you have it all planned out. I have been looking for a Matchbox or PM kit to make a Danish version.

Ville Siltanen I know that there are few issues with Mpm and Special Hobby kits even so they are much better than Pm Model kit.If i remember right PM kit and Matchbox kits are from same moulds.

Bill Davis Gordon Sorensen, I believe the PM kit is based on the Dutch built version. When the Finns started license manufacturing the D XXI they changed some things.

Bill Davis Ville Siltanen, I got the special hobby and the MPM, kits after I got the PM model. I have been able to use parts of those models as a pattern to modify the PM kit. I got the PM model as a practice kit. If I wanted to practice filling, sanding, filing, modifying, and scratch building, this was the kit to get!

Ville Siltanen Yes you have right one for that.By the way if need some assistance with fokkers if you are going to make Finnish ones let me know , i might be able to help.Because i see one every day when i am working.Have you decided what FR you´re going to make?
14. October 2013 at 15:23:22
Bill Davis The D XXI that I am building will be FR-97 of 4/LLv 24, white 2. It was Lt J Sarvantos aircraft. It will be painted in the winter war, overall green scheme, with skis.

Ville Siltanen Ah.The famous one which he scored six kills in four minutes.I believe it´s a still some sort of world record.Good luck with build,can´t wait to see it finished.

Heikki Lankinen Have you made any progress with this kit?
6. May 2016 at 19:12:56
Bill Davis No I haven't. I have since purchased kits of the same aircraft from MPM and Special Hobby. I have found out that generally, the better kit you start with the better finished model you end up with. Turning this very basic kit into a nice model would be a challenge that I would like to finish one day but I don't know when that will be.

Heikki Lankinen I've got this same kit in stash, perhaps I'll also just let it be.
