Overview
 

WWI era Austro-Hungarian Albatros D.III (OEF) S.253 fighter evolved from a German design in Polish service and flown by American Merian C. Cooper against the Bolshevik Russians. The kit features a well rendered injection-molded airframe (ex-Roden tool) with Austro-Daimler engine, fine 'fabric over frame' effects and cockpit interior - all enhanced with resin parts (exhaust stubs, forward bulkhead, machine gun receivers, tires/wheel rims, axle pins, wire wheel form) and photo-etch detail upgrades (cockpit floor, rear bulkhead, seatbelts, instrument panels, fuselage vents, inspection covers, radiator faces, undercarriage strap, wire wheel disks). Colorful decals are provided for Cooper's 'White 5', serial S.253.218 during the winter to early summer of 1919-1920 including dizzying 4-color 'sworl' camouflage and Polish-American Kościuszko squadron badges.

"In the end, this is a very good likeness of an Oefag Albatros D.III S.253 - even to the wingtip washout and scalloped aileron and elevator trailing edges… another of history's ironies - a German aircraft design, built by the Austrians, in Polish service, flown by an American, against the communist Russians."
