eBay This listing is for a new Corgi Aviation Archive Collector AA 38305 Fokker Dr.I Triplane diecast model Luftstreitkrafte Jasta 6, Hans Kirschstein, Cappy, France, April 1918. This model was released in April 2014 with only 1100 distributed world wide, a limited edition card is included.Scale: 1/48    Length: 4.75"   Width: 6" (wings span)Hans Kirschstein was born on 5th August 1896 in the Prussian kingdom of Germany. Hailing from an aristocratic family, his father headed the provincial government. Hans joined the infantry as a combat engineer in 1914. Contracting Malaria in 1915 he returned to active duty in December of that year. In February 1916 he applied for a move to aviation. He was accepted and began his flying career as a bomber pilot before receiving fighter training and was assigned to a Prussian squadron, Jagdstaffel 6 on 13th March 1918 where he would go on to become the squadron's leading ace. Scoring his first victory on 18th March, by the end of May he was a triple ace with 15 victories. He would go on to score 27 victories with his final kill being achieved on 24th June 1918 when he was also awarded the Pour Le Merite. Kirschstein was killed only a few weeks later, after hitching a lift in a two seat observation plane.Designed in response to the highly maneuverable Sopwith Trip lane, the Fokker Dr.I was first flown in 1917 and was one of the most successful and recognizable combat aircraft of WWI, attributing much of its fame to the German WWI ace Manfred von Richthofen – the iconic "Red Baron". Light weight, small size and three wings made the aircraft highly maneuverable and deadly in the hands of an expert pilot but very unforgiving of less experienced pilots. Common for airplanes of that era, a fixed crankshaft configuration allowed the entire engine to spin with the propeller, creating strong gyroscopic forces that adversely affected the airplane's handling under power.Fokker Dr.I TriplaneCorgi's 1:48 scale Dr.Is capture the unmistakable lines of the real aircraft, including ailerons that extend beyond the upper wing-tips. Fine gauge wire represents the structurally significant bracing wires found on the actual aircraft. Additionally, the mold faithfully replicates the complex contours of the entire aircraft, simulating a stretched fabric covering. A detailed pilot figure sits behind the twin Spandau machine guns. Up front, the propeller and engine are nicely detailed and free to rotate in unison behind the cowling. The model rests on rolling rubber tires that accurately reproduce the gray color vulcanized natural rubber takes on after prolonged exposure to sunlight.Corgi "Aviation Archive" die cast airplanes feature: Die cast metal construction with some plastic componentsRealistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface detailsPad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decalsInterchangeable extended/retracted landing gear with rotating wheelsPose-able presentation stand to display the aircraft "in flight"Many limited editions with numbered certificate of authenticityDetailed, hand-painted pilot and crew member figuresAuthentic detachable ordnance loads complete with placardsSelected interchangeable features such as speed-brakes, opened canopies and access panelsSelected moving parts such as gun turrets, control surfaces and swing-wings
