An unusual WW I fighter with award-winning performance
Ihave always wanted to build WW I aircraft other than the more commonly seen Fokkers, SE5s and Camels. When I discovered the Siemens Schuckert D-III, I knew I had found my next pro- ject. There are many color schemes available, and I highly recom- mend Bob Pearson, or the Windsocks Data Files, for ideas. The model is challenging to build but involves nothing that the aver- age modeler can’t tackle with a little patience and persistence. It has no bad flying habits and is accurate enough in outline to be competi- tive in scale competi- tion. I have won the Westchester Radio Aero Modelers show WW I class, and I took first place at the Farmington, CT, scale meet and a first place in Expert class at the New England Scale Championships. Let’s start building!
