>I have an Albatross. Crude Airfix but smaller, is a good description.
Is it valuable? Should I go up to the attic and try and find it?
Haven't seen it for years!

A Spad VII kit by "Plastiques Dermatt", a brand mentioned from time to
time
in WW1 kit listings. I wondered how those kits may have looked like
(purportedly, those were given as a gift with "Grap" beverage)
They look like crude Airfix but smaller!

Nico gave me a Bristol Fighter   by Grap. The beverage was apparantly an 
awful wine. You needed a couple hundred bottles to qualify for one of the 12 
kits.

Nicely enough, 'grap' is Dutch for joke.
