Microaces Aero Fokker Dr.1 Red Baron Kit

£45.00

Flown by Manfred von Richthofen 1918

The Fokker Dr.1 is the latest iconic WWI aircraft to be replicated by Microaces. 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

Our love of aviation history ensures that the aircraft we choose to reproduce as kits not only look fantastic on static display and 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. Fortunately those fabulous chaps at E-Flite make one for one of their micros so it's available as a spare part. Order an EFLU3004 from your local or preferred E-Flite reseller in preparation for the kit or add one to your pledge kit order HERE!
