Microaces Aero Fokker Dr.1 Red Baron Kit
Flown by Manfred von Richthofen 1918
The Fokker Dr.1 was is an iconic fighter aircraft with many vices but, in the hands of an experienced pilot, it was a formidable weapon. This particular livery was flown by the most famous ace of WWI; the Red Baron.
The Dr.1 kit includes a vacuum formed plastic cowl, extensive laser cut light plywood parts and a replica Oberursel II rotary engine kit that actually spins with the prop!
History in the Making
Microaces love of aviation history ensures that the aircraft we reproduce as kits look fantastic on static display as well as in the air.
The Microaces 'Dreidecker' comes complete with a vac-formed cowl and a spinning Oberursel Ur.II dummy rotary engine kit, that adds an incredible level of mechanical detail to this astounding model.
NB. The dummy motor does require an elongated prop shaft for your PKZ3624 motor/gearbox or add a 'rotary ready' Microaces Motor/Gearbox.
