I must have built 20 of these when I was a kid, and some finished ones for my daughter and nephew over the years. My grandson just learned how to build models so I introduced this classic kit to him and it came our fair enough, not finished at all but I wanted it to be a kit to learn how to build and do decals, so it is quite fine for his desk. He also learned not to pick it up but the top wing. That was a problem with the real Triplane too. Recommend this for anyone wishing a quiet, quick project or a painstaking modification into a nice triplane. Worth the time and yes I will build another one with the refinements necessary now. I learned how to build it too.

"ancient Fokker"

I have been modeling for some time, having built this kit when I was a kid. I recently purchased a new one and was surprised to see Revell, Venice Calif, 1957 stamped inside the fuselage. The kit is also stamped 1981 on the landing gear plane at the very bottom. So, Revell must make good kits considering; a. Richthofen flew this in 1917/1918, b. The kit was originally make in 1957, c. I'm building one in 2017. Had some minor fit issues with the machine guns and if you don't clean up the flash, you'll have other fit problems during assembly. The decals had some silvering and despite my best efforts I couldn't eliminate them (the weight table and aircraft identification) and the tail decal doesn't line up correctly and is oversized so have some Micro Sol/Set. Rigging was easy as was the overall assembly. I have it a good rating but unless you want to spend a lot this is an excellent model to try you hand at WWI aviation. As always, have fun.

This kit does have it's flaws but yet it can produce a good looking result. The kit's fit and finish are OK. There was a lot of plastic flash from the molding process so be prepared for a lot of clean-up to get parts to fit well and look good. It is a Skill Level 3 kit, which may be a little over-rated unless you add the flap and strut rigging options with the supplied thread. Others have mentioned the decal silvering on the lettering decals, which I also experienced even though I applied them over glossy paint. Also the poor fitting tail decal can be dealt with by just painting the tail gloss white before applying those to decals - that gives you a lot of flexibility in working those decals into an acceptable position and then blending them smooth with Micro-set.

 
"One of a kind"

In the '70s Revell released a trio of WWI fighters (Fokker DR.1, SPAD XIII and Sopwith Camel) in an oddball 1/28 scale that have been reboxed off and on since then, and remain popular for their price and detail. They are well engineered, fit well, and have nice detailing that still looks good. Despite its age, the DR.1 kit is detailed and accurate enough to build into a nice representative of the type, is easy to assemble, and its size makes it easier to assemble than a 1/72 or 1/48 kit. When compared to newer releases in the more standard 1/32 scale, the old Revell kits still represent a good value, and an interesting kit to build
