[WWI] Ever want to see a Renwal aeroskin?

I concur with Diego.  I built the Pfalz many moons ago when your  
choices were this kit or the Warbirds vac.  I probably should have  
built the vac.  The main problem was in trying to use the original  
struts.  Due to the age of the plastic, the small/thin bits are quite  
brittle,  but I used them anyway.  Now, any slight breeze causes struts  
to snap.  These kits are curious little dust collectors.
