1/48 05102 Glencoe Oeffag Albatros D-III - Austro-Hungary Decals for 3 Aces - (DIII)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
Oeffag modified the German DIII design with a stronger airframe and engine, making a superior fighter to the German machine. When the Germans tried to upgrade to the DV, the Austro-Hungarian air arm did not need to. The plane performed very well against a numerically superior enemy and was a favorite and the mount of many of Austria's Aces. Has markings for Austria's leading ace with 35 victories, Godwin Brumowski. Large decal sheet also includes marking for his other Albatros and two other Austrian aces as well. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
