I haven't seen them in the states, yet.

Not true! If you don't mind paying US$50, you could get Blue Max's
D.IIIa. And Eduard should be coming out with their Albatros' soon -
not to mention their oft-delayed Pfalz.

As I've said, I have the first Dr.I sheet, and although - yes - the
register and coloring is spot on, there was some problems that Rimell
had. However, now that I think of it, I wonder if it was the
