Ah, Aero-skin - that does bring back old memories! They're a little
tricky but ultimately they look OK. BUT, these old Renwall Aero-skins
have a value of about $15-$30 with the old kit folks so long as they're
unbuilt. Build 'em and the value drops to $0. You'd be ahead selling the
Renwalls and buying a mess of Revell Dr.I's and D.VII's to build instead.
