I've got Windsock Vol.10 No.2 which features 1/72 drawings of the R.II and 
the wingspan measures out at around 577 mm, which is about 22.7". The model 
would also be 279 mm long. Even if this beast was moved to a 1/48 single 
engine prop table it would be big compared to its neighbors! Could you 
imagine it sitting next to a Sopwith Pup? Some day I'll get around to 
scratch building one because I doubt we'll ever see one in kit form.
