The Fokker Dr. I, a German triplane fighter, was introduced late in the war and saw widespread service in the spring of 1918. Manfred von Richthofen — the 80-victory scoring top ace of World War I better known as "The Red Baron" — finished his illustrious career flying the Fokker Dr. I. Leutnant Josef Jacobs also flew the legendary warbird, a man who achieved 48 victories during the war, ranking him fourth among German aces. He is also the highest scoring pilot in the Fokker Dr. I, with more than 30 confirmed kills.
The newest exciting addition to our popular Wings of the Great War series, this 1/72 scale resin display model — a reproduction of Jacobs' black Fokker Dr. I — features that aircraft's signature "devil" art, textured surfaces that simulate fabric-on-frame construction, wing and landing gear bracing, authentic markings, and a mid-flight, articulating display stand. Measures approximately 3¼" long with a 4" wingspan.
