I first built the drei way back in 1960, following the kit instructions precisely. The net result was a strikingly pretty plane that actually flew well. Out-of-the-box, the Fokker Dr. I is a very stable flyer.

The drawbacks come immediately, though. The landing gear is very fragile, barely capable of supporting the heavy polystyrene wheels, much less actually enabling a three-point touchdown without collapsing. Also,
the single strand of rubber supplied in the kit is absolutely inadequate
as a power source.

I kept my drei flying for the next three years, but the entire set of three wings had to re-built. By that time, I had learned many free flight tricks that improved the flight characteristics of the kit.

If you intend to produce a flying model, ignore the wood wing ribs (cut from very heavy balsa); use them only as patterns to cut new ones from contest weight balsa. Use a Cox Pee Wee .020 for power. Make balsa wood wheels. The new model will be lighter in weight, adequately powered, and less likely to require repairs after every flight.

If you want to produce a display-only model, then use the wood and plastic parts as supplied. Then, substitute spruce or basswood for the landing gear, cabane, and interplane wing struts. The more substantial wood will make wing alignment much easier.

The new edition kit is familiar and not-so familiar. Wood quality is still too heavy for a flying model. The plans and instructions have a more modern look. The decal set is OUTSTANDING!! Guillow's kits always
came with superb decals: accurate colors, absolutely aligned and registered, and easily applied over doped tissue. Back in the 1960's you could buy an extra set for sixty cents. What a bargain.

I first built one these in the 1970's. These kits now days have laser cut parts which is a big improvement. The balsa parts just slip right out and dont's split and tear like in the old days. The instructions seem better also. These kits are much easier now.

I was very satisfied with this kit. It was exactly what I expected, having built numerous Guillow's kits in the past. The only real problems that I ran into during construction, were ones of my own making. DO NOT GET IN A HURRY! My only gripe with Guillow's kits is the lack of a scale propeller for static display.

i purchased this plane for my father for Christmas. he's built a good number of them and this was one he really wanted to build. he really enjoys it, as well designed as the rest of the kits. if you've never built one of these before, i recommend not starting here.

This is a stick and rib balsa model so be aware of that. Ideally you need a proper building surface to make it.

The laser cut parts are outstanding and with some cyanoacrylate glue it goes together fast. The plans are great but I found a mistake in them - it has to do with the wood sheathing on the bottom of the 'wing' between the wheels - but it's not a big deal, the two pieces are reversed on the plan (or the labellng on the parts is backwards, take you pick).

Parts are clearly labeled, they pop out easily. One surprise was instead of getting a bundle of 1/16thx1/16th stringers, along with some 1/16x3/32" stringers, the box contains a strip of balsa that is sliced up for these parts. You need to cut them out of the piece to use them. Not a big deal at all, just be aware of the two different sizes on the same piece of wood.

Several people have converted this exact model to radio control but there is nothing in the plans for this. Guillow designed it to be a free flying model so they can't be blamed for not having that in the instructions.

Really like the laser cut parts. Have other LC models. Makes a difference in . fit and appearance. The decals left something to be desired. Very difficult to transfer with tearing. Would much rather have the pressure sensitive stick on type. Overall, a good model to build.

I like the quillows kits, always have, ever since I was a kid and I'm 54 now. During my lifetime I built a couple of the Fokker triplanes and they are fun to build. I haven't tried one of the laser cut versions yet, so I plan to order this. But reading the description, I thought I would add a note for those interested. The Fokker triplane was a failure. German pilots hated it because it was unstable and not good in battle. They considered it a death trap. It also was not the Baron's favorite plane, but he did get shot down in one. I am not sure how that myth got started, but a little historical research will show it wasn't what he normally flew.

Still working on it because you don't slap these things together quickly. Follow the 3 photos and graphics instead of the pinned layout to get the best results (they do NOT agree). I've built/rebuilt this a few times but I like the laser cut option instead of the alternative.
