Fokker Dr.1 "Red Baron" Desktop Wood Model - MFMCDR1RBW - Mastercraft Models
Length: 11.5 inches
Wingspan: 14.25 inches
The Fokker Dr.I triplane was a World War I fighter aircraft, which saw widespread service in the spring of 1918. It became renowned as the aircraft in which Manfred von Richthofen gained his last 19 victories. During 1917, the Sopwith Triplane began to appear over the Western Front. The Sopwith swiftly proved itself superior to the Albatros fighters which were currently in use by the Luftstreitkr�fte. Fokker-Flugzeugwerke responded by converting an unfinished biplane prototype into the V.4, a small, rotary-powered triplane with a steel tube fuselage and thick cantilever wings. Instead of submitting the V.4 for a type test, Fokker produced a revised prototype designated V.5. Richthofen first flew the Dr.I in September 1917 and shot down two enemy aircraft in two days. Richthofen recommended that fighter squadrons be reequipped with the new aircraft as soon as possible.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
