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.
Unlike the other planes of this type, the E.V featured an inline 100hp Mercedes D.I engine. About twenty were built before the order for fifty of them was cancelled.
This product comes in both 1:144 and 1:285/6mm/1:288 scales. The 1:285 product features three aeroplanes
, each with a detachable, translucent propeller disk rather than propeller blades. They are connected by sprues which you will have to carefully remove with snippers or nail cutters.
