WOW124 – Friedrichshafen FF.33
Out of Stock
WOW124 is a Friedrichshafen FF.33, a 2 seater seaplane
operated by several air forces including the Kaiserliche Marine. Over 300
were built by Flugzeugbau Friedrichshafen with the initial production models
being fitted with a Mercedes D.11 engine, this was soon replaced by the more
powerful Benz B.111 inline engine. The FF.33 could be carried on board a
ship and one accompanied the raider ‘Wolf’ which took part in a 451 day epic
mission under the command of Captain Karl Nerger. The ‘Wolf’ sank 35
merchant ships and 2 warships before returning home to a victorious welcome
in Germany. The FF.33 had a wingspan of 54 feet and was over 33 feet long,
had a rear firing machine gun and could carry a small bomb load.
We have made 10 models of the FF.33 in a striking cream coloured early war
scheme, priced at £365 including free postage, also comes with
free pilot figure GW070B as per the photos.
