Siemens Shuckert D.III
HyperScale is proudly sponsored by
This is Eduard's 1/48 scale Siemens Shuckert D.III, their first short
run injection kit released back in early 1990s.
The plastic parts displays heavy flash and all the interior is done
by photo-etched parts. The kit requires tremendous cleaning, trimming
and dry fitting during construction. This is especially true with the
cockpit to fuselage assembly and engine nacelle framing.
All the struts (V shaped and N shaped ones) should also be thoroughly
dry fitted before glue in place to avoid a warped wing (the upper wing
should be completely flat, totally free of dihedral).
Some five or six decal options were supplied with the kit and I
finally opted to build it as Ernst Udet's mount.
