Excellent flight characteristics, easy control, and ease of maintenance on the ground soon made the D.III (Oeffag) series 153 a favorite among pilots. The most successful Austria-Hungarian aces gained many victories flying the D.III. Production ended in June 1918, when the more improved D.III series 253 appeared. Many aircraft flew until the last days of the Great War, and even after the end of war many D.III series 153 machines were still in service in Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, Ukraine and some other countries.

Please see the paint guide below for the manufacturer’s recommended colors. Roden recommends Humbrol paints for this kit, and you can find the full line by clicking here.
