| Description

Scheme: E.III 105/15 Ernst Udet KeK Habsheim March 1916

The E.III variant of this historically important fighter aircraft began to arrive on the Western Front at the end of 1915 and proved to be the definitive version of the aircraft. Produced in larger numbers than any other Eindecker, the arrival of large numbers of E.IIIs allowed the Luftstreitkrafte to deploy specialist fighter ‘hunting’ squadrons for the first time.

Colour and contents of products may vary from those illustrated

Incorporating Anton Fokker’s ingenious ‘interrupter gear’, which allowed machine guns to fire through the arc of the propeller without bullets striking the blades, the Eindecker is regarded as the first true fighter aircraft in aviation history and changed the course of aerial warfare forever, following its introduction in the summer of 1915.

Nice change to single wing.

Great single wing kit. A little trouble with the back wheel setup, but loved this kit.

Great Quality and Not Too Hard

Really enjoyed building this. Needs a bit of filler behind the cockpit, but has otherwise gone together perfectly. Note that the recommended colour is more of a grey green (slate grey 31) as opposed to the iconic cream (103)
