Fokker B.1 / M.10E
The Fokker M.10E was developed from the Fokker M.7. It too was a two-seat observation aircraft, powered by an 80 hp Oberursel rotary engine but with a strengthened strut arrangement between fuselage and top wing. It was in use by the Austro-Hungarian Air Service (K.u.K. Luftfahrttruppen).
Note that B.1 was the military name, this should not be confused with the 1920’s Fokker B.1 flying boat.
The M.10E had a simple but strong box-like fuselage, the wing arrangement being of single-bay sesquiplane form. Not depicted in model form is the similar M.10Z, which had a 2-bay wing construction but was otherwise similar to the M.10E.
