What's the old Aurora kit like? It was naver available over here.
I compared the wings with 1:72 drawings that appeared in something that I
now can't remember, and enlarged them to 1:48. Might be interresting to
do the same with the drawinggs in the Harleyford book.: I'll do that this
weekend and get back to you (all).

And the answer is ...... Tom's Modelworks! The already have aat least
a Pfalz DII and DIIIa, with Albatroses, a Pfalz DXII, and some C/CLs (!) in
the pipeline. At the moment I'm waiting on the Pffalz DIIIa.
