If I were you, I would complain to no end. The Albatros C.III has
been released a couple of times since Jul 1994.

As far as him being in or out, I wouldn't hold my breath for anything
from him. He constantly calls Barry at Rosemont (sometimes 3 times
in one day) asking for money for his "next project". Currently, he
claims to be working on a Fokker D.I/D.II and a Gotha G.IV (?). Yea,
right. Like anybody's going to fall for that bomber trick he pulled
with the Caproni. Personally, I am very upset with Meikraft, mainly
because of his "promises". He seems to know what strings to pull,
only to cut them while your dancing!? :-/
