Flugzeugdampfer I (x1) (3D Printed in Grey Resin)

The aircraft carrier was the first planned aircraft carrier conversion project of the German Imperial Navy (Kaiserliche Marine) during World War I. The Imperial Navy had experimented previously with seaplane carriers, though these earlier conversions were too slow to operate with the High Seas Fleet and carried an insufficient number of aircraft. I was intended to carry between 23 and 30 aircraft, including fighters, bombers, and torpedo-bombers.

The ship was based on the incomplete hull of the Italian passenger ship Ausonia, which was being built in Hamburg. The conversion was proposed by the Air Department of the Reichs Navy Office, but it was abandoned after negotiations within the German Navy over a proposed moratorium on new ships at the end of the war. After World War I ended, high inflation in Germany added to the cost of the ship, and as a result, the Italian shipping company for whom the ship was originally built, declined to purchase her. The vessel was therefore sold to shipbreakers and dismantled in 1922. (More on Wiki HERE)

German Carrier
This piece is such a cool addition! I bought two of these for my A&A 1914 game to add a few special units, and I was not disappointed! They are printed very close to the German pieces and look great

Flugzeugdamper I carrier
Very lovely piece. A bit smaller than I anticipated, but when compared next to the Baden and the generic pieces, it fits her size. With this being said, it is an excellent piece, and brings a new flavor to the game!

Flugzeugdamper I
A carrier for the High Seas Fleet, What a novel idea! This might add a slight advantage to the Germans at Jutland and Dogger Bank. A real nice unit.
