Corgi Aviation Archive Series Diecast Model

Albatros D.V - Lt. Freidrich Ritter von Roth, Jasta 23B, Luftstreitkräfte, 1918

1:48 Scale.  Length: 6”.  Wingspan: 7.5"

Limited Edition

Roth transferred to the German Air Force after recovering from wounds he received while serving with  an artillery regiment, but was injured in a flying accident during training. He scored his first victories on January 25, 1918. On that day, he shot down three enemy balloons in less than ten minutes. By the end of the war he was Germany’s highest-scoring balloon buster. Of his twenty eight confirmed victories, twenty of them were balloons. Depressed that Germany lost the war Roth committed suicide. He was awarded the Knight's Cross posthumously in 1919.

The Albatros D.V was a fighter aircraft used by the Luftstreitkräfte (Imperial German Army Air Service) during World War I. It was the final development of the Albatros D.I family and the last to see operational service. Despite its shortcomings and general obsolescence, approximately 900 Albatros D.V and 1,612 D.Va aircraft were built before production was halted in early 1918. The D.Va continued in operational service until the end of the war.

The Corgi Aviation Archive features a wide selection of high quality, ready-made, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using specifications of the original aircraft. Corgi models are built with diecast metal and some plastic components.
