Fellow modelers:

In October, our club is going to have the annual kit auction, where
people in the club can bring in their models/modeling stuff. I plan
on getting rid of a few things, as well as try and "introduce" people
to WW1 modeling (in 1/72nd, naturally ;-)). I was planning on
"packaging" together five or six Revell/ESCI and Airfix kits and
selling them as a "lot".

My query is this: what would you consider a great "intro package"?
I know Steve would say "keep it all German", but I would like to run
the full gamut. I have plenty of "spare" Airfix and Revell/ESCI kits
lying around, so it won't bust me "plastically". Here's what I was
thinking of:

Airfix Sopwith Pup
Airfix SPAD 7
Revell Fokker Dr.I
Revell Fokker D.VII
Revell/ESCI Nieuport 17

Others? I don't want to "package" more than six, so try and keep it
on this level. I also don't want to go into the other kit
manufacturers, since the Airfix and Revell/ESCI stuff is still in
abundance. (I'm also hesitant about the Nie 17, primarily because it
is my favorite, but also because Revell hasn't seen fit to re-release
it yet.) Thanks.
