WOW105 Albatros B-2 (Blue Fuselage Variant)
Out of Stock
The Albatros B11 was designed by Ernest Heinkel and based on his 1913 design of the Albatros B1. The B11 had a shorter wingspan than the B1 and was powered by a variety of engines, in 1914 it set a world altitude record of 14,800 ft. The seating was somewhat unusual in that the pilot sat at the rear with the observer at the front. When war broke out the Albatros operated in large numbers but was withdrawn from frontline service in 1915, as more advanced aircraft came into service. However the type still soldiered on as a trainer until the end of the war and was operated by several air forces after WW1. Designated as an observer aircraft the Albatros B11 was usually unarmed but could be armed with bombs if needed. It was in fact the first aircraft to bomb England during WW1 when it bombed Faversham in Kent, fortunately with no reported casualties! Our 1/30 scale model comes with a free figure from our WW1 range where available. The $ price shown includes an additional charge for postage and therefore no further charges will apply at checkout.
