The Fokker DR.1 "Triplane"
VK Models Kits

Proctor Enterprises VK Model Fokker DR-1

(Click on the images to enlarge.)

It would be hard to imagine the "Great War" without Manfred von Richthofen and his Triplane.  Volumes have been written about both, and yet the mystique continues undiminished.

The Fokker "Dridecker" (three wings) was designed by the talented Reinhold Platz as a response to the sensational debut of the Sopwith Triplane in April 1917.  The technology of the period was advancing so rapidly that insecure designers were always fearful that they would be surpassed their rivals.  Such was the case with Triplane.  It wasn't long before nearly all manufacturers had one.  Most, however, were inferior to the biplanes there were designed to replace.  The DR.1 was not without its problems, but its unsurpassed maneuverability and excellent rate of climb, combined with the brave and talented men who flew them, all but guaranteed their colorful place in history.

VK does its best to set you in the cockpit of this classic design.  Yes, we know all the stories about its ground handling but that's where you need to add your part.  You know... "The brave and talented men who flew them!"  Once airborne, though, this model has no rivals.  It is the ultimate crowd pleaser.  

You'll be pleased, too.
