World War One contains the first recorded instances of air-to-air combat, and those first instances of flight crews firing small arms at each other spawned an entirely new realm of aerial combat. Mid-air combat spawned an entirely new sort of warrior: the fighter pilot, reminiscent of the knights of old. Among the most famous of this new breed was Manfred von Richthofen, better known as the Red Baron. Rapid technological developments eventually spawned the Fokker Dr.1 triplane, utilized by Richthofen in the later years of the war, painted a bright red. Despite the fact that he only flew the Fokker Dr.1 for a few months of his several year career, the bright red triplane is remembered as the iconic seat of the Red Baron.
This famous fighter is recreated here with an exacting attention to detail and a beautiful bright red finish that will serve to make this model a centerpiece item for any enthusiast.
