Description

Three wings are synonymous with only one pilot- the legendary Manfred von Richthofen. Known as the Red Baron, Richtofen flew to an astounding 86 career aerial victories during World War I, mostly while flying an incredibly agile Fokker triplane like this. This model is dressed in blood-red silk canvas with a white tail and a black German cross. The Fokker name appears in script on the engine housing, and the wood propeller is varnished to an impressive shine. Details in the cockpit and the dual mounted guns are realistic as well.


Beholding this model, it becomes clear why The Baron was such a formidable foe. Three wings let this plane maneuver like no other, and the big rotary engine could attain speeds of over 100 mph. Only advanced pilots could fly these planes, and the Baron got everything out of his aircraft. In April 1917, he had 20 kills alone in the most prolific month of his squadron. Finally shot down by a Canadian pilot in April 1918, Richthofen had such respect from his enemies that they gave him a lavish funeral. Order this model for your desktop and relieve the skill, passion, and determination of the mighty Red Baron in full detail. Some minor assembly is required.
