The L.V.G. C.V
was one of the great multi-purpose German two-seaters of 1917-1918, along with the D.F.W. C.V
and Rumpler C.IV. Arriving at the front in late summer of 1917, production of this well-liked plane ramped up quickly, and it was soon the second-most common two-seater at the front behind the D.F.W. It wasn't until mid-1918 when it was supplanted by the L.V.G. C.VI
, and post-war they were taken up by Poland, Russian, and the Baltic Republics. Probably 1250 C.V's were built.
This product comes in several scales. The 1:285 product comes with two aeroplanes
, each with a detachable, translucent propeller disk rather than propeller blades (which are difficult to produce at this scale). 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. The 1:600 and 1:700 products come with six aeroplanes
on a sprue. You'll have to carefully remove them from the sprue.
