Agreed! I got into this area of the hobby early enough to get most
of the Datafiles/Windsocks, but too late to take advantage of some of
the kits. Unless there is more I don't know of, I'm missing the
Bristol, and the Hanriot fro Pegasus, and the BE2 from Meikraft
(should have picked it up when I saw it at the '91 nats). Although,
you might want to wait to see what MPM will come out with... I've
been hoping Meikraft will re-release their W.29, but since I heard
MPM might do it, I'm not so sure anymore. (Although, unless the plan
on cleaning up the mold, Meikraft can forget about re-releasing their
Albatros D.I/D.II. I've got two - one I built - as well as a Classic
Plane vac, and the work on the Classic Plane is LESS than the work on
the Meikraft.)

> If you're lucky enough to find more than one.....

I'll definitely keep you in mind.

This reminds me. I've got 2 Pegasus Siemens Schuckert D.III's I'm
willing to part with for $10 pp to the US (write me if you're
overseas, and we'll make a deal). I'm also willing to trade for
stuff, as well. First two mail messages I get requesting them will
get them. (Note that I have 1 of the "older" molds. If you want
this one, also let me know. This "older" mold will be part of the 2
I let go.)
