The first production example of the D.VI was accepted on April 26, 1918 and by August sixty aircraft of this type had been produced. Contracts for sixty more were cancelled because at this time the Fokker D.VII entered service. This new design was superior to the D.VI in every way. The majority of all 60 D.VIs built were delivered to the Kampf Einsitzer Staffeln, special units created mainly for the intercepting of Allied bombers. The Fokker D.VI, which had an air-cooled engine and could take-off without delay, was a good choice for this role. But the climbing ability of the D.VI was still poor and the fighters were dispersed in the Alsace-Lorraine region where bombing raids were less frequent.

Please see the paint guide below for the manufacturer’s recommended colors. Roden recommends Humbrol paints for this kit, and you can find the full line by clicking here.
