The Fokker 100 is a 100 passenger medium range airliner built by Fokker AG in the Netherlands. When it was introduced in 1987, sales were brisk, and it was a financial success. But by 1995 there were several competitors introduced, and sales were low. Fokker had to declare bankruptcy. They were bought by Deutsche Aerospace AG, but they also had financial problems, and production was ended in 1996. Most have been retired, but there are still a number flying in Australia and Iran.
The Revell kit was introduced in 1996, and has been re-released in 1996 and 2005 with new decals. There are also several aftermarket decal sets available for this kit.
The Scale Aircraft Conversions Set
You get two sets of gear parts in this set. This is very handy, because I have another Fokker 100 in my stash. The parts are all white metal, and they fit nicely in place of the kit parts.
