Message-ID: <005a01c1abcf$86f3f740$13eab094@sandyada> Visited Justin Young in Glasgow yesterday and came away with the Albatros J-1 - what an ugly machine - great! Lovely details - engine, crew etc. I spent an interesting half hour with the guys in Cromwell Miniatures next door, who do Justin's fuselages and figures - saw an Albatros CX fuselage coming out of the mould. Unbelievable that something so delicate emerges. (The CX is next up, then a Lloyd CV - saw the masters - stunning!) Anyway we talked and Justin is thinking of doing an alternative resin fuselage/tail for the HiTech AEG GIV (a GII). I told him somebody on the list had mentioned having an e-mail from the owner of HiTech and I'd see if I could get the name and e-address, so they could discuss. Anybody help? I thought Brent's summary of the kit was a bit worrying, but I'll hold judgement 'til mine arrives - the line "It is going to require a little more work than the average WWI twin engine bomber." was brilliant! All those Tamiya and Hasegawa G-types are just so easy to build! However I think we should all be delighted to get any modern multi-media injection kit of a big twin for less than the cost of a CSM scout!

It's a Korean copy of the original Revell Dr.1 though there are some minor changes - symettrical ailerons instead of the original kits asymetric ailerons. Markings on the box are for Rahn's Jasta 19 machine, which as you mention is streaky dope/CDL over turquoise with yellow rear fuselage, black striped tailplanes and yellow cowl with Rahn's B&W striped belly band and diamonds. I assume it has the same minor faults of the original - dodgy interior detail, no lip on the cowl and an extra footstep on the starboard side - nothing too scary to fix IMO Should build okay, I've seen some stunners from the old Revell kit.

As you say, the resin kits are not the same but some of them are fantastic quality; e.g. some of the Ludemann and Roseplane products. Again, resin manufacturers provide a significant variety, although perhaps not in the same WWI areas of interest. Seems that most of the older vacuformers came out of the UK and their subject matter reflected that. Nowadays, a lot of the resin manufacturers: e.g. RVHP, HR Models, Omega and Tom-M, seem to come from the Czech Republic. Naturally, the selction of subjects has a strong WWI Austro-Hungarian flavour with a mixture of WW1 subjects that operated in the early post-WWI Czechoslovakian arena. Further, we have subjects such as the Nieuport Triplane and Wight Quadraplane, so it's not all that bad. By the way, how come the Czech Republic has so many resin manufactuers of models?

After trying Elmer's white glue several times to reglue the binding I've found success in using Weldwood Carpenter's Glue. I ran a seam down the inside of the spine, tucked in the pages that came loose and then put three large alligator clips over the back of the spine. After drying overnight remove the clips. I've since referenced the book several times and nothing has come loose and the pages are tight.

The only item of the kit which bothers me is the top wing sags between the cabane and out board struts. Ive tried hot water, and it's still there.

It has all the good properties of Elmers, but sets up like epoxy, and is impervious to water when dry.
