Stropping another razor.

This is my second look at the plastic sprues of this Eduard 1/48 kit of the Fokker E.V. Though it is an all plastic kit in this issue and meant to target the average modeler is is mantled with a hyothetical colour scheme that has one foot in reality. This profile is supposed to represent the Fokker E.V flown by Theo Osterkamp, Marine Feld Jagdstaffel II, Belgium, 1918. The most notable change in the mold seems to be that the PP#2 that had the cupped wing surface effect from the first pressing is gone from this section issue. Also the cockpit framing seems a bit more inscale from what I remember.
