Fokker Dr.1 'Lola!' Kit

£46.00

Flown by Ernst Kessler in 'The Great Waldo Pepper' 1975

The Fokker Dr.1 was is an iconic fighter aircraft with many vices but, in the hands of an experienced pilot, it was a formidable weapon.

This particular rendition is a rare departure from our historic prototypes, being a replica of the aircraft flown by the fictional character Ernst Kessler in the compelling 1975 film staring Robert Redford as Pepper, and Bo Brundin as Kessler.

The Dr.1 kit includes a vacuum formed plastic cowl, extensive laser cut light plywood parts and a replica Oberursel II rotary engine kit that actually spins with the prop!
