Orlogsværftet Type F.B. IV – Introduction

I have decided to make a model of Orlogsværftet’s type F.B. IV Flying Boat. This flyingboat was a development of the very successful Maagen III. The F.B. IV had a similar hull, but different wings, a larger engine, room for two persons – a pilot and a gunner.

I now have the formers for the hull, as well as a 3-View and other stuff. I will start constructing the model real soon. I can’t wait to get started. It’s a really gorgeous aircraft.


Crew: 2
Length: 9,63 m
Wingspan: 13,75 m
Powerplant: 1 × 200 hp Curtiss
Maximum speed: 133 km/h
Empty Weight: 994 kg
Full Weight: 1435 kg
Range: –
Armament: Madsen 8mm machine gun.

Please see a detailed description of the very similar Maagen-III airplane here.

    Militaria collectables for instance medals and helmets , turn out to be effective reminders of sacrifices produced by generations of males and women in uniform in struggle time. Regardless of what type of contemporary historical past you might be interested in, or regardless of whether you might be a Vietnam War enthusiast , WWI historian , WWII buff , or veteran of your armed forces, you’ll learn a significant selection of battleground and struggle memorabilia on
