Meng - 1/32 Fokker DR.1 Triplane Limited Edition w/Bust





Fokker DR.1 Triplane
w/Resin Bust

Limited Edition ​

More than one hundred years ago, Europe was in a state of devastation. Farms and pastures were ruined by shell craters and muddy water. Laughter in bars was replaced by people’s sobbing. Bank managers became soldiers hiding in the trenches and primary school teachers plunged bayonets into others’ chests. Everyone on the battlefield was surrounded by the angriest roars and the most vicious curses. But even in the desperate twilight, there was one gem shining brilliantly. Its brightness was so dazzling that it’s still remembered by the once warring parties. Manfred von Richthofen, the cavalry officer who learn to fly in 1915, became the top-scoring ace of World War I by winning 80 air combat victories in less than two years. His iconic red aircraft was well known to both warring parties. The Germans rejoiced in it, and the Allies were convinced by his exquisite combat skills and precious chivalry. As a legend, his death was dramatic because of the bizarre possibilities. The story of the “Red Baron” has gone across time and beyond hatred and is still being told today.

Fokker DR.1

In autumn 1917, machine guns, barbed wires and shell craters were all over the quiet and wet Western Europe. Accompanied by death and rats, a soldier who curled up in the muddy trenches looked into the sky. That’s the only pure place he could watch. But even in the sky, there was a dominator. From time to time, the specially shaped German triplanes appeared and dogfighted with British and French planes. Among those German triplanes, one red aircraft stood out in the blue sky. By flying excellent maneuvers, this red triplane could always defeat those British and French aircraft which tried to shoot it down. The red triplane was the dominator of the sky, and its pilot called “Red Baron”.
The red triplane flown by Manfred von Richthofen, the “Red Baron”, was a Fokker Dr.I triplane produced by the Fokker company in 1917. Its three wings were arranged in order from top to bottom with the wing areas reduced sequentially. In this way, the triplane could get more lift than biplanes and monoplanes and wouldn’t suffer too much drag. Most metal bracing wires were hidden inside the aircraft to further reduce the drag. Two MG08 air-cooled machine guns with synchronization gear were installed in front of the cockpit. Its firepower was far better than the British triplanes.
