Not all of von Richthofen's 80 kills happened in a Fokker Dr.I triplane, but it has become the aircraft we most associate with the ace of aces.

The Fokker DR.I Triplane works well with the collection in my Library/War Room...
This model of the WWI Fokker DR.I Triplane is well worth the price and is an excellent choice to hang in my personal Library/War Room. I have attached two photos of my setup and display. The first photo shows my framed photo of "The Red Baron", my build-up of "The Blue Max" a WWI award which is used as a hat rack, and my WWI "Captains Cap" setting on top of a gemstone world globe, and the "Fokker DR.I Triplane" hanging from the ceiling. The second photo shows the "Fokker DR.I Triplane" hanging from the ceiling, the photo of "The Red Baron", and the " Blue Max" with the "Captains Cap" hanging on the peg on the medal. The Red Baron's actual name: German = Rittmeister Manfred Albrecht, Freiherr von Richthofen English = Captain Manfred Albrecht, Baron von Richthofen Kind regards, Don_
