(1 & 2) w/n 1730, Fokker F.I 103/17 as flown by Ltn Werner Voss flown in September 1917 and then commander of Jasta 10 when he was brought down on the 23 rd.  It was given the British capture number G.72. In a legendary air combat Voss was brought down by members of 56 Sqdn RFC.  The credit was given to Lt. Arthur Rhys-Davids MC.  The wreckage lay in front of the British trenches for some time before it was recovered and further damaged by shellfire. Although this was the first of its type to fall into British hands, very little was said about it in the reports and little of it was considered worth recovering at the time. The RFC report on this airframe can be found in the Public Records Office files AIR1/1061/204/5/1579 and AIR 1/887/204/5/648.  Though it was never displayed intact there aim was to do an under the skin build of a pre-production Fok. F.I type. This is an Aerobase & DML / Dragon  kit crash.

(3 & 4) w/n 1856, Fokker Dr.I 144/17 flown by Ltn Eberhardt  Stapenhorst of Jasta 11 when he was brought down by Anti-aircraft fire and captured on 13 Jan. 1918.  It was given the British capture number G.125   It was later displayed with other captured aircraft in the “Agriculture Hall” in Islington.  All of which had half of their coverings removed to display internal structures to the public for the price of 1 penny. Proceeds went to the RAF Hospital Fund. This is an Aerobase & DML / Dragon kit crash.

(5 & 6) w/n1864, Fok. Dr.I 152/17 was flown during February and March 1918 by Rittmeister Manfred von Richthofen commander of JG.I.  This is a DML kit with decals from the spares box.

Thank you one and all for the kind posts and PM's on this portfolio. Aside from a couple of typos, that are my fault I could not be more pleased. My thanks to the grand fellow Jean-Luc. Folks he spent 2 hours of his own time to help format these images and files for your viewing. He has been helping me with the typos as well so my hat's off to him too.
