Anchorage House of Hobbies Pretty Plane ARCS Pretty Plane March 2022 Winner of the ARCS/ Anchorage House of Hobbies Pretty plane contest for March 2022 was a Fokker DVII built by Bob Stephens. The model is 1/24th MicroAces kit . The wingspan is 14” and the mass is 39.6 grams (1.9 ounces) including the single cell 3.8volt 150 mah battery which powers the model. The radio gear and motor are UM, (ultra micro), gear which is available from Microaces.com, Stevensaero.com, or from your old Horizon SU 26 or micro P-51. Rumor has it that Anchorage House of Hobbies will stock UM gear soon. The Fokker DVII model is in the livery of Wilhem Leusch’s Jasta 19 aircraft flown in 1918. Wilhelm survived the war with 5 victories. This model was completed just in time for the Indoor Contest scheduled for April 29th at Teeland Middle school. Save the date!

For his outstanding craftsmanship, Bob wins the much-coveted Anchorage House of Hobbies Pretty Plane award (a $50 gift card)!
