> Dieguito is gonna to build Austrian flying boat!

I already have two... and both came via Buenos Aires... I detect a pattern
here! The first one was the Lohner L, but that looks so hard to build that
it may take a good while. I also have a Macchi M.5 (quite advanced) and a
M.7, which will be apinted as an Argie boat.

I see that it has a strange cockpit coutout. Is that so? The engine is
something not very well defined. Looks like a Hiero, but how can I say...

I have the feeliong that I saw this one painted red and white, belonging to
an Austrian ace. Is that true?
