The Albatros D.III was a German biplane fighter used in the Great War during 1917. The type was flown by many of the leading aces of the period, including Manfred von Richthofen, Ernst Udet and Erich Löwenhardt. The subject of this kit was flown by Werner Voss (who claimed 48 victories, many in the DIII, before being shot down and killed in a Fokker triplane by Arthur Rhys-Davids and James McCudden).

Like many of Revell's 1/72 biplane kits the box art promises a lot but, these being rather elderly moldings, the quality of the plastic doesn't quite match what you see on the box. The native detail of the kit is certainly finely realised (given the age and price tag) but the mold has suffered a little from the ravages of time and the parts are flashy and the details are a little blurred. They still trump Airfix's contemporary kits however and with a little work these shortcomings can be overcome.

In particular, I spent a little time adding detail to the cockpit which is entirely bare and, if you leave out the pilot figure, embarassingly open. By contrast, I also sanded off a little of the wing surface ribbing detail which is somewhat overpronounced. Apart from that I had to remove some flash and ejector pin marks and fill in a few small sink-marks. While this may all sound a little too much like hard work, it is by no means too tricky or time consuming for even a beginner and, of course, if you paint and include the pilot figure, then you can get away with the cockpit as it is.

The one really big job was to add some rigging wires to the wings. Yet again, though, this is entirely optional and the model will look fine without it. I would strongly advise though that if you are planning on doing it, DON'T use cotton thread as advised by the instructions.
