The Fokker Dr. I was the most legendary aircraft of the First World War, although only about 300 machines were ever built. The most important contribution to the creation of this legend was made by Cavalry Captain Manfred Baron von Richthofen, who, with 80 victories in the air, was the most successful fighter pilot of the First World War and whose planes were painted red. This redlivery was the reason why his English adversaries called him the Red Baron. On 21st April 1918 von Richthofen was killed when his plane was shot down at low altitude by Australian machine gunners. Although influenced by the design of theBritish Sopwith triplane, the Fokker was a completely independent design. The Dr. I was extremely manoeuvrable and was flown by many experienced pilots.

With a total production of over 500 units, the LS-8 is the single-seat glider that has been built in greatest numbers over the past 15 years and is still the front runner in international contests. The uniqueness of the concept and the superior flying capabilities of the LS-8 have gained for it numerous medals in national and international championships in the standard and also the 18m class. With a view to increasing mobility, the LS-8 was equipped with an auxiliary motor that could be switched on. In the meantime over 2/3 of glider production has been power-assisted in this way as the concept offers enormous advantages. The very detailed model kit has a filigree reproduction of this motor with propeller. Naturally the wing tips are optional on both the 15 m and the 18 m versions.
