This is a 1/144 model of a 1917 model Albatros C.V. The Albatros C.V two-seater's success was limited by the troubles with its Mercedes D.IV engine. However, over 400 were constructed, and the lessons learned in its evolution were put to good use in the Albatros C.VII and C.X, with Benz Bz.IV and Mercedes D.IVa engines respectively. These improvements included balanced control surfaces, elevated observer gun ring, and the in-wing radiator.
