by Model Airways Wood and Metal Kit
There s never been an airplane model as highly detailed or as true to the original as the Albatros D.Va by Model Airways. We ve captured virtually every detail in laser cut basswood and birch plywood, accurate Britannia metal castings, brass, copper, aluminum, steel and rubber.
The most interesting feature of the Model Airways Albatros kit is its open airframe. Normally hidden under layers of cloth or canvas, we leave the laser-cut wooden frames uncovered to show the intricacies of construction. You ll find birch fuselage bulkheads, wing ribs and pilot s seat, basswood fuselage stringers and wing rib caps. Cockpit is reproduced in authentic detail, complete with tachometer, pressure gauge and compass. An authentic 180 HP Mercedes-Benz engine, comprised of over 100 highly detailed Britannia metal parts, is a marvel of miniature design with carburetor, oil pump, spark plugs and valve springs.
The Albatros D.Va from Model Airways is sure to impress any modeler looking for superior detail, unsurpassed authenticity and uncompromising quality of materials. Four sheets of blueprint quality plans and a 48 page illustrated instruction manual help pave the way to a museum quality masterpiece.
