                Lovely, Dennis, per usual.  Looking forward to seeing you in
December.  But to the Eindecker genre...

                Listees, if you're planning on building the WNW Eindecker or
even the Eduard kits, you really should consider purchasing the new
two-volume Windsock Compendium on the Eindeckers.  Magnificent!  And unlike
other Datafile Specials, these two volumes are entirely about the aircraft
and its variants; nothing in the text is about operational issues.

                The photos in the two volumes are wonderful.  There is
essentially no question that you could ask about building these guys that
isn't in there.  Well, OK, Shane, the author does NOT describe the warp and
weft of the covering...   ;-)  But if you're interested in building the 1/48
Eduard "die erste Kanonen" dual kit, one E.II and one E.III, the text and
photos will quickly identify every change that you have to make to
"backdate" the kit, which is an E.III, to become an E.II.

                I thoroughly enjoyed this read, then spent a couple of hours
making notes on issues that could be addressed in building the Eduard kit.
EIYDWI ("even if you don't want it") , I'm attaching those notes, which you
can make use of at your leisure if and when you buy the two volumes, which I
obviously highly recommend.

                                Mike
