    Looking at the one in the OP, it is the same as the one from ebay so that confirms it as a replica. All the dirt and creases are identical.

    It must have belonged to some Fokker at one time though... [I] saw this on ebay a couple of months ago being sold as a copy. I'm fairly sure the original Fokker rudder was made from aluminium tube.
    Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.

    If I saw this for sale, I would pay $200 to $250 just to hang it on the wall. Don't think I will ever find an original WW1 Tail of anything.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Unfortunately it is a copy IMO.

    I am including some photos of a Sopwith Camel rudder that is currently for sale by a dealer as a comparison.

    It is priced at over US$9 400. A Fokker rudder would, I believe, be more than this.

    Edit: The only original E3 is in the Science Museum in London.

    The E3 used chrome-molybdenum steel tubing for the basic fuselage structure instead of wooden components.

    See photos:

    That's from a Fokker Eindecker and not from a triplane because if it was from a triplane, there would have been Dr.1 and not E.III

    I'm with Dean (campX) - damn fine wall hanger even as a copy.
