Thanks JR.
No immediate plans to start building it real soon, but you never know. I'm 
just looking at the supplied decal options. The one I prefer is 2225/18, 
which looks to be a later production crate, as it has the late style 
balanced elevators. The scheme is factory varnished wood fuselage with 
lozenge on the wings and tail plane with a white spinner. There's a personal 
marking that's a white shield with a castle looking design on it, just aft 
of the cockpit opening, with no visible numbers.
This looks like it could be a real fun model to build if I don't get all 
hung up with AMS. I'm sure I'll have some more questions when I do get 
around to building it but I'm thinking I'll  resist getting the datafile, 
for that way madness lies.
Sorry I don't have anything on the Albatros C-III for you. But this is THE 
LIST! Someone will come along with the answers.
