I have a model of Altair (Hai 112) but I am having a hard time confirming anything about her. Searches on the internet have not born fruit. I found a mention in Worlds Merchant Fleets 1939 of a Dutch freighter under construction in Amsterdam, Altair, captured by the Germans and put into service in August 1941 as a "target" ship and later sunk by British aircraft in April 1943.
Can anyone elaborate on the career of the real Altair?
