Revell 1/72nd Albatross D.III

The Albatross has to be my favourite WWI plane, in all it´s variants. The shape, the ease of build and the ease of rigging make it a great beginners plane.

The Revell Kit version may not be the most historically accurate version but it has got to be the easiest to build among all the various Albatross kits on offer. This, IMHO is a massive plus factor..who wants to get tangled in a virtually impossible build, the result of which may turn out not to meet expectations and at the cost of buying an highly accurate kit but spending frustrating hours but ending up with something not far removed from the “not so accurate” version that pleasingly took a fraction of the time?

Anyway…no long build description..the instructions with the kit are self explanatory and even a short search of the web will give plenty of decoration ideas.

Colour scheme of Lt. Bruno Loerzer, Jasta 26, western front, summer 1917.

In the colours of Lt Werner Voss, Jaste 2, Boelcke, June 1917. The pilot is from the Dark Dream Studio "Pilots of the First World War"
