I owned three Fokker D-Vll replicas, constructed by Rousseau Aviation in France. They were constructed for The Blue Max and utilized Gypsy Queen engines which upset the true look by having the drive shaft at the top of the engine, rather than at the bottom. Because of the rush to produce, Rousseau used tubing with thicker walls than called for in the plans. Consequently, the aircraft were overweight and took something like 1800 feet to become airborne. Once in the air the replicas were a pleasure to fly. From their 1965 appearance in The Blue Max, the featured in five or six feature films, plus a load of commercials, before I sold them to a guy in Texas.
