Fokker Dr.I Triplane 1/48th

The Fokker Dr. I was the most legendary aircraft of the First World War, although only about 300 machines were ever built. The most important contribution to the creation of this legend was made by Cavalry Captain Manfred Baron von Richthofen, who, with 80 victories in the air, was the most successful fighter pilot of the First World War and whose planes were painted red. This redlivery was the reason why his English adversaries called him the Red Baron. On 21st April 1918 von Richthofen was killed when his plane was shot down at low altitude by Australian machine gunners. Although influenced by the design of theBritish Sopwith triplane, the Fokker was a completely independent design. The Dr. I was extremely manoeuvrable and was flown by many experienced pilots.
