The Pfalz monoplanes were licence-built copies and variants of the Morane-Saulnier G
, armed with a synchronized IMG-08 machine gun (or two, in the case of the E.IV). While similar to the Fokker eindeckers
, they were not well-appreciated, in no small part because they appeared several months after the Fokkers. Pfalz aeroplanes tended to be assigned to Bavarian pilots, and they made due until better planes came along.
The E.IV was the Pfalz equivalent of the Fokker E.IV
, with twin Spandau machine guns and a twin-row Oberursel U.III rotary engine. About 46 were built.
This product comes in both 1:144 and 1:285 (1:288) scales. The 1:288 product features three aeroplanes
, each with a propeller disk rather than propeller blades, which are difficult to print at smaller scales. They are connected by sprues which you will have to carefully remove with snippers or nail cutters.
