Perhaps best known as the aircraft in which Manfred von Richthofen, the "Red Baron," achieved his final 19 victories, the Fokker Dr. I was first flown late in World War I. It saw service in the spring of 1918, though, due to structural problems and the introduction of more effective Dr. VII, only 320 were manufactured it was removed from frontline service by the summer of that year.
Made by Corgi, this limited edition, 1/48 scale, die cast model is a replica of a Dr.I flown by 4-victory fighter pilot Fridrich Kempf as it appeared in 1917. It features an open-style cockpit, a pilot figure, a rotating propeller, a detailed undercarriage, wing bracing, authentic Jasta 2 markings, and a display stand. Measures approximately 4¾" long with a 6" wingspan.
