Product Description
The revolutionary all-metal Junkers D.I was derived from two Junkers prototypes: the J.7 and the J.9. Test pilots described it as "at least as maneuverable as the Albatros D.III or D.V", but front-line pilots were skeptical of a low-wing monoplane. This may by attributed to built-in prejudices, but it may also be a reflection of the D.I's limited downward visibility. In the latter half of 1918 the Germans were usually outnumbered and frequently resorted to quick diving attacks on Entente formations with a quick zoom away without becoming entangled in a dogfight. Limited downward visibility would be a limitation to such tactics -- a limitation not suffered by the contemporary high-wing Fokker D.VIII.

After the initial batch was built, vibration problems forced Junkers to shorten the fuselage, and D.Is trickled their way to the front in both long-fuselage and short-fuselage configurations. Though forty were ordered from the parent company, twenty seven were completed by the time production stopped in early 1919. Junkers-Fokker completed another thirteen (of an order of twenty).

It is still a point of debate on how many -- if any -- of the D.Is saw combat service during WWI, but they did serve in Poland during the conflicts with the Bolsheviks, where their weather-proof and robust construction was greatly appreciated.

This product comes in two scales:  1:144 and 1:285/6mm/1:288.  The 1:285 product contains two aeroplanes -- one short fuselage and one long fuselage D.I.  The smaller-scale products come with a detachable, translucent propeller disk rather than propeller blades, since they are difficult to print at small scales.  They are joined by a removable sprue base to keep the costs down.
