I've only seen ONE picture of your Albatros.
It is "heavy", overall, in my opinion.
What I LOVE about it is that it is balanced and consistent, throughout.
I believe that is more challenging than anything else subjectively 
criticized on this subject and value that above all else in your 
achievement. That fascinates me. Whether or not it turned out perfect 
matters less to me than the fact that you experimented and may have 
something for the rest of us to learn about.

I'm glad you stopped by.
This is an opportunity to direct remarks to you, personally.
