in 1916, barely 20 years old, Max scored his 8th aerial
victory over the Western Front in his Albatros D.II. The
High Command issued him the Pour Le Merite for his
and Germany celebrated him as a hero. Soon after, the High
Command changed the requirements to 16 aerial victories
and only a handful of pilots would ever be awarded the "Blue
Max" under the new conditions.
Max went on to rack up sorties knowing full well he
probably wouldn't live to celebrate his 21st birthday. How
long will Max survive in your Jasta? Will it be a
dogfight...or just gravity which eventually forces his
fate? Only you can decide.
figure is made by Aces of Iron Productions Inc. for use in scale RC aircraft.
While this figure is made to fly, it would also look great
on display on the shelf as well. The figure is great fun
to paint. The
figure represents the typical young (Albeit Over
Achieving) German aviator of WW1
era. The figure is cast in one piece with standard issue
leather flight helmet, goggles and fur lined flight coat.
The pilot is made of durable
resin and is hollow cast to ensure he is flight worthy. The
pilot is shipped unpainted ready for you to paint and
will accept both enamel and acrylic paints. Detailed
design information is provided below. If
