The Halberstadt DII caught our eye. A bit of research found that it was a sturdy airplane, but at 90 mph was a bit too slow for the Allied aircraft of the mid-1916's.The plane had a span of 28.9 ft. and a length of 23.9 ft. I t was powered by a 120 hp Mercedes engine and mounted one or two Spandaus.
The Halberstadt flew under different flags. They were standard in the Turkish Air Force for years. See our SPAD XIII (Model Builder 3-76) for how to make up the Turkish insignia. The Maltese Crosses were painted on the model
