WWI German fighter of exceptionally elegant proportions. Manufactured using the 'Klinkerumpf' construction method of lap strakes for the fuselage, resulting in a superb 'boat like' fuselage, accurately portrayed on the kit parts. Often called the Longship, the D.VIb served alongside the Albatros D-III & later the Fokker D.VII to great effect. Kit contains both early and late tail surfaces. Blue Max kits contain main parts in short run injection moulded plastic, with cast pewter detail parts and screen printed decals. Limited production run of 1500 kits only.
