After cockpit is completed, fuselage assembly is so easy going, just few parts which fit perfect to each other. My impressions is that this is absolute filler free kit. Best and most likely is that cockpit interior is fit from bottom from big opening on fuselage bottom, it slightly rail into slots and click into place- no glue at all!!! Wings does not have so much details inside, this is just first step of assembly.

Here is first photo of painted fuselage cockpit sidewalls. Front is green and rear is metallic blue color. Assembly of cockpit interior is based on frames, simply first do seat, attach it to rear frame, then prepare floor and add to that side frames with instruments and controls. Need some care and my doubt was in few occasions, should I replace original plastic part with proposed etched or not, so in few options I hold original plastic, somehow look better to me.

With the tail raised and the stops placed under the wheels, there is a prototype of the Fokker B.II fighter (aka Fokker M 10 Z). Austria Hungary, Stanislav (today - Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine), spring 1916. The picture was taken during field tests of the aircraft by the Air Force of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Judging by the pilot sitting in the cockpit in his usual uniform and the engine not running, I assume that the synchronized 7.92 mm Bergmann LMG 15nA machine gun was being tested.

Interestingly, the aircraft with b/n 03.61 was the second prototype of the Fokker M 10. If the first one was a two-seat reconnaissance/training aircraft, then our Fokker was a single-seat fighter. The differences also affected the design of the wings ? on the double wings, two pairs of racks were connected on each side, but on the single version only one pair. After the tests, Austria-Hungary ordered 22 aircraft of this type from Fokker-Flugzeugwerke. All of them were delivered without weapons and were used for training.
