BALSA USA 421 1/4 SCALE FOKKER DR-1 TRIPLANE

WORLD WAR 1 TRIPLANE FIGHTER

Unquestionable the most recognized aircraft of World War I. From late 1917 unil June of 1918, the Fokker DR-1 Triplane blazed its way across history and into the popular culture of today. In the hands of men like Manfred von Richthofen "The Red Baron", Werner Voss and Ernest Udet, the Tri-plane quickly became known as the ultimate "dog fight" aircraft of World War I. In its design, Anthony Fokker and Reinhold Platz sacrificed speed for the rate of climb and maneuverability - they were successful. "They climb like monkeys and maneuver like devils" Manfred von Richthofen
