I'm keeping this one simple, it is Revell's 1/72 Fokker DR1 with markings for Manfred von Richthoven's last aircraft.



I found the current thoughts seem to be towards MvR's red triplane being a much darker red than it is traditionally shown, so I am using Model Master anti-fouling red, a dark brownish red color.



So far this is proving to be a nice trouble free kit. I've got a couple of biplanes under my belt now and I can see why many suggest the DR1 as a first WW1 model. It is far less fiddly than most having just a few very solid struts, and minimal rigging.

I really like the Revell WW1 aircraft, they are generally very easy to build but still come out with a nicely detailed model. I have the Eduard DR1 with markings for LvR, it is a neat scheme but does look like a lot more work, good luck with yours.
