Prinz Friedrich-Karl von Preussen

Roden recently released a 1/72 model of the Albatross D1 flown by Prinz Friedrich-Karl von Preussen. A really nice and easy kit, yet to add a pilot to this one also, I also need to add a cross to the tail plane, stuff up the decals for this, I may just paint a white box and add the cross later.

The prinz actually commanded a artillery battery but flew this kite for observation, for Flieger-abteilung A 258. He was shot down and taken prisoner on the 21st March 1917, by lt Pickthorne from the 32nd sqn RFC, the prinz later died from his head wounds he revived in the crash.


Cheers
Matt
