AW 11608 Pfalz D.VII / VIII
The Pfalz DVII /VIII biplanes evolved from the Dr.I. First flown in December 1917,
it used the same 160 hp. Siemens-Halske engine. Performance was excellent especially
in climb provided the Siemens-Halske engine was not over heating or having other
teething problems. As a result, the DVII went into small scale production for front line
evaluation. The DVIII went into production Feburary 1918, reaching the front by April.
However these were not released for combat duty until June of that year. Reports indicate
that it was equal to the SSW DIV in speed and climb but inferior in maneuverability.
Our Model presented here gives the builder a choice of constructing the DVII or DVIII.
All modifications are clearly noted on the plans. Build it for display, rubber powered
Free Flight or Micro Electric R/C by the more experienced builders.
