J.R.,

     The only 1/72 scale kit of the DFW B.1 that I know of is the LIBRAMODEL vacuform kit.  By the way 
it is a Joe Chubock mold.  Thanks for the WINDSOCK validation.  I forgot to check my back issues 
last night when I got home from work.

There was a "black & white" photo in that issue of WINDSOCK showing the DFW B.1 on display in the museum.  Perhaps the aircraft was removed from exhibit for restoration.  That's all I know about it.

Is this a new plane at the museum? The only DFW I know of is at Krakow, a C1 there is also a B1 at Prague but it is a Aero built Hansa B1. Let me know right away about this aircraft.> Regards Toby> > > ---------------------------------> Sucker-punch spam with award-winning protection.> Try the free Yahoo! Mail Beta.
