The Albatros D.III, often called "De-drei," is a neat single-seat biplane fighter armed with two guns firing through the propeller. It goes up like a balloon and at full throttle it reaches 170 kilometers per hour.


"The Polish and English text is well written, notably for the history of the types' development and operational service..A set of design drawings brings this part of the book to a close, before attention shifts to 3 high-quality step-by-step builds...The associated photos are superb, with good lighting and depth of field , even on the close-ups, enabling modellers to to understand all aspects of how these models were built."

- AirFix Model World

"For those that may prefer several really nice models presented in a sort of step-by-step manner, to actual references on the aircraft themselves, this book certainly has that."
