Celebrate the infancy of military aircraft with this exciting addition to the popular Wings of the Great War series!
Among the most prolific fighter aces of World War I was Albert Ball, a Brit who was the country's leading pilot with 44 victories at the time of his death in May of 1917. The Red Baron, upon hearing of his death, remarked that Ball was "by far the best English flying man." He was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross and, despite, dying a 18 months before war's end, he still finished as Britain's fourth leading ace.
Replicating Ball's S.E.5a as it appeared in 1917, this 1/72 scale resin display model features a colorful design, finely textured surfaces that simulate fabric-on-frame construction to the biplane struts and cross supports, a well-equipped cockpit, a realistic engine, fixed landing gear, authentic markings, and a display stand with an articulating mount to present your model at various in-flight angles! Measures approximately 3½" long with a 4½" wingspan.
