MMQS-002 1/32 Fokker Dr.I Triplane 'Red Baron' (ex WNW kit)
- Customer Reviews
The Fokker Dr.I Triplane (along with the Sopwith Camel) is probably the most famous WWI fighter. Entering service in late 1917, it proved highly agile with a good initial climb rate. However, the Dr.I suffered from a number of problems, in combat it was found most Allied fighters were faster and the Dr.I's performance fell away dramatically at higher altitudes. It also suffered from structural issues, some planes falling apart in mid-air and the pilot's view was poor for take off and landing. It was withdrawn from service in June/July 1918 when the superior Fokker D.VII entered service.
Meng's Fokker Dr.1 is the former Wing Nut Wings kit and as such it is of the highest quality that is currently expected of aircraft kits. It has 3 different build/decal options, including one flown by the Red Baron. There is also a small fret of etch metal parts, including seatbelts.
