What's wrong with MAC kits?  I agree that their Fokker E.IV and Fokker D.VII 
were surpassed by Eduard and Roden, respectively.  However, I have built the 
Roland D.VIb, Pfalz D.III & D.IIIa, Phönix D.I & D.II, and they are really 
good kits.  A little thick on the trailing edge of the wings but the quality 
of the plastic is high and the molding is good.  I think they are a little 
expensive but I found that if I waited, they come down in price and I was 
able to acquire them for a reasonable amount.

I also have the SPAD VII, which I'm looking forward to building - in RFC  
colours of course!


P.S. I see some Aussie cricketer has been found guilty of rascism for 
calling someone a "Pommie git". :)  Worst of all the "Pom" turned out to be 
an Irishman:)!  Between these misdirected types of insults and the deadly 
spiders now inundating Brisbane (apparently pronounced Briz-bun by the 
natives) households one wonders if they should ever be permitted full 
independence. God Save Matilda!
