The Phönix D.III
improved upon the D.II's
maneuverability by adding ailerons to both upper and lower wings, which were given a new planform. The D.III finally moved the guns within the pilot's reach so that a jammed gun could possibly be cleared, which necessitated flattening the forward deck of the fuselage. It retained the 230hp Hiero engine of the D.IIa. Sixty-one of them were just going through flight testing in the final month of the war, and it was seriously considered sending them into battle without further testing to stem the losses at Piave.
After the war, only the Fokker D.VII and Phönix D.III were chosen as post-war production Austro-Hungarian fighters, high praise for the D.III.
This model comes in both 1:144 and 1:285/6mm/1:288 scales. The 1:285 scale product has two aeroplanes
, each with a detachable, translucent propeller disk rather than propeller blades (since they are hard to print at the smaller scales). They are joined by disposable links to keep the price down, since single-part models are more affordable. You can break the links with nail clippers, wire cutters, or similar.
