Lothar Von Richthofen

Here are some images plus a composite of Hobbycraft's 1/32 scale Fokker Dr. 1 Triplane. This is the aircraft that was flown by World War One fighter ace Lothar-Siegfried Freiherr Von Richthofen. Younger brother of Manfred Von Richthofen. Lothar Von Richthofen was credited with 40 victories during the war but died in a plane crash in 1922. Lothar Von Richthofen is credited for shooting down in 1917 top English ace at the time Albert Ball. These are the new Hobbycraft kits and they offer a huge variety of varying colour and decal schemes in one kit. The decals by the way are excellent.
