Modern stuff I can understand. Heck, 1/35th tanks and an
*occasional* automotive-type is even excusable. But Bf 109's? For
your penance, you will correct the *ESCI* Albatros D.III. :-)

At least my current "other" kit has two wings: Curtiss F9C
Sparrowhawk. Be aware, though, that building a German Mistel does
*not* count towards your two-wing minimum requirement. Lets face it,
towards the end of WW2, the Germans got _lazy_. (Tongue firmly
implanted in cheek.)
