Each Metal Earth model is laser etched in meticulous detail on 11 cm (4.33") metal sheets. Pop out the pieces by hand (or use wire cutters to get especially crisp lines), bend the tabs using needle-nose pliers, and fit them together as shown in the simple pictorial instructions. For maximum dramatic effect, display your model on the LED Display Base or the Solar Spinner (sold separately, see the Related Products below).
The Fokker is an easy Metal Earth model. It consists of 11 pieces on one sheet of metal. Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron himself, praised the Fokker as the best airplane he had ever flown.
Please note that Metal Earth models have sharp edges and are not suitable for small children. Metal Earth was originally called MetalWorks.

Easy and safe to fly, the Fokker D-VII offered such excellent performance that the Red Baron called it the best aircraft he had ever flown. On his recommendation Germany went into full production, eventually making 3,300 D-VIIs by 1918. In fact, the demand was so great that Fokker couldn't produce enough planes and had to contract it out to two other companies. It was such a formidable fighter that the armistace ending WW1 required Germany to surrender all of its remaining D-VIIs.
Von Richthofen is best remembered for flying a bright red Fokker DR.I triplane, although he made only 19 of his 80 kills in that aircraft. The Albatros D.III was the plane that made him famous. Ironically, he was killed just days before the D-VII went into service.
