I bought a triplane out of impulse today. $5 Revell and $4 Airfix kit caught my
eye, but having built the Revell kit maybe 30 years ago and just torturing
myself with the Airfix Sheridan, I decided to aim for a good quality kit.
Has anyone had any experience with this plane? It is 1/72 scale and kit #7016.
It includes PE and some Eduard express masks. Not a bad looking kit, impressive
detail. I didn't realize it would be so small though.
Chose the Fokker Dr.1 because a local station plays that Snoopy/Red Baron
Christmas song often. And because it does not have a lot of rigging. Almost
picked up Udet's Fokker E III, but that monoplane looked like there were too
many strings hanging around.
