Junkers D.I plane
Junkers D.I was a fighter aircraft produced in Germany during World War I. It was the first all-metal fighter in history and was voted as one of the best planes of its age. It swept up quickly and successfully performed aerobatic flights (loop-the-loops, rolls, turns etc). There were only a few dozens produced but they had a chance to take part in air combats during late WWI. Due to their durability they successfully fought against observation balloons that were well-covered by anti aircraft artillery. These aircrafts were especially effective for fighting of the Soviet Army in the Baltic states after WWI.
The model reproduces its real prototype; it is made of high-quality cardboard and includes 7 details only. The producers used a unique technology of embossing that allows to imitate the surface of the duralumin wings and the body of the aircraft.
The assembling is easy, clean and safe: without glue, knife or scissors. All the details are already colored and you don’t need to tinker at painting and decals.This model is good for your collection if you gather miniatures of aircraft and other military hardware. Or it could be a nice gift if a friend of yours who does it. And of course you can use it in some war games or as a part of the terrain in a model scene (for example for a miniature railroad because its scale is H0 and it matches the scale of railroad models worldwide).
