Albatros WWI
Scale Model Anthology Series

Fokker F.1/Dr.I Vol. 1

Albatros Productions



The first volume in our new Albatros WWI Scale Model Anthology Series is devoted to  the legendary Fokker Dr.I Triplane flown by Germany's leading WWI fighter pilots; the best known being Manfred von Richthofen and Werner Voss, both of whose iconic aircraft are covered in great depth.



This new book is the ultimate modellers' guide to building, detailing and finishing 1:32 scale Fokker F.I and Dr.I plastic kits with particular emphasis on the Meng (ex-Wingnut Wings) models released in 2020 and 2021!

Contents include:

  • 1:32 and 1:24 F.I/Dr.I kit reviews from Andreas to Meng.

  • Detailed painting notes from Richard Alexander with a model paint comparison chart.

  • The pre-production Triplanes with archive photos and Ray Rimell's highly detailed build log of the Meng F.I in Voss' colours-all supported by Juanita Franzi's multi-view artwork.

  • How the original WNW kits were designed-a unique Q & A with Richard Alexander.

  • Colour close-up images of Mikael Carlson's superb airworthy Dr.I replica.

  • Authentic diorama incorporating the Roden Dr.I with a railway transport wagon.

  • Fully detailed build log of the Meng Dr.I finished as von Richthofen's iconic red-painted DR.I 425/17 by Ray Rimell with fabric analysis and colour profile.

  • Detailed and authentic all-new 1:32 scale colour profiles of 10 early production aircraft by Ronny Bar-all supported by reference photos and Meng modelling notes.

  • Gallery of archive portrait and close-up photos chosen with modellers in mind.

  • Appendices with bibliography, manufacturers' web links and more.

For serious modellers keen on getting the very best from the Meng and Roden kits, WWI aero-historian and author Ray Rimell, together with former WNW General Manager Richard Alexander, present 76 colourful and image-laden pages enabling modellers to achieve perfect results every time. With over 300 illustrations, this data-packed guide also focuses on a number of lesser-known aspects of this iconic warplane recorded for the very first time!
