1/72 - Albatros C.III by Kovozávody Prostějov (KP) - released


Recommended Posts

Blummin' eck.  Kits I want are being released quicker than I can afford/ build them.  Can't really have a WW1 German collection without one of these.  That pale blue on looks rather pleasing.

not got one yet, unfortunately. Hopefully I can get one at Telford.

 

 

Ordered 1 from the big H collection at Telford all to save £1.30!

A spoon of tar to this barrel of honey - it's not first time that painting scheme of KP/AZ kit is far from historical truth. There is (and was) no place called Mokotowice in Poland and this Polish C.III is a very hypothetical specimen (no serial nor individual codes). There are several photos known of the Polish C.IIIs and most (if not all) of them have plain olive green uppersurfaces. Moreover - some of them feature individual codes and/or serials :(

It's quite opposite to the AZ 7329 Lim-5 s/n 1C1023 that is shown in 3-colour uppersurface camouflage while the real plane sported FOUR topside colours. And don't try to persuade me that some other authors also show it like AZ does. The prototype is exhibited at the Polish Aviation Museum in Krakow and the man who brought her there in 1988 was... yours very truly.

Cheers
