(Sorry for the double email, Neil.)

I bet the newish KP (sorry, not AZ, but the same company - that 
organization also sent their newish Kingfisher for review as well) 
Albatros C.III will be in that realm, too. It looks really nice in the 
bag and I soon hope to have an in-box on IM. Oh, and it contains the 
Dragodile markings!!


Starting to feel motivated once again for on-topic modeling. (Which is 
it: OT or ot?)
