1/33 Siemens-Schuckert D. III Swiss Air Force Paper Model
The D.III/ D.IV fighter series, the first-and last-S.S.W. original rotary engined design to see service with the German Air Force, differed radically in appearance from all previous production
fighters. Its stocky, barrel-like fuselage was of considerable strength and continued the circular section dictated by the engine throughout its length. In the initial production machines the Sh.III engine was completely enclosed in a close-fitting circular cowl, and the fourbladed propeller-of fairly coarse pitch-was fitted with a large diameter spinner. This combination left an insufficient aperture for the entry of cooling air, and later the cowling was drastically cut away in the lower half, thereby exposing the front engine-bearer spider frame.
