BGRADE – Wings of Glory – Phonix D.I (Lang)

$17.15

This B-GRADE condition item is unbroken, unplayed, cards sealed. Cosmetic damage may exist on the box. In most cases the item is sealed, however in some cases I can tell the mini has been removed from its packaging by its original owner to admire it, and carefully returned. Priced at my cost plus small markup to cover time and fee’s. Typically this stock exists from collections I’ve bought that were not completely as described, from local players of the game who I’m assisting, from stock that has been left on a board game store shelf for years, or new items that have box damage from rough shipping.

Description

The Phönix D.I was a single-seat biplane fighter with a stout and compact design, used by both branches of Austro-Hungarian air service. It was a fast airplane, well-armed and offering good vision, but it was quite difficult to maneuver and had a poor climb rate. Employed first as an escort fighter and fighter, in spite of structural weaknesses, it was favorably received by many pilots, who found it stable, robust, and easy to fly. The D.I was also used effectively as a photo-reconnaissance aircraft.
