Hi, I'm not too sure about the Albatros in this photo, could you have a go at it?



Many thanks: Kent

It looks more like a DFW C. V

Here's another LVG B.III from www.oy-reg.dk

It's sort of like a 120hp Mercedes powered LVG C.VI.

I think your right, the radiator and the tank a little to the left!
So no way to do this from a WNW's kit...

Many thanks: Kent

Hi!
Checking my files I think is an L.V.G. B.III. The style and form of the fin and rudder is
typical of that variant, the nose too.
Here a Belgian one: http://www.belgian-wings.be/Webpages/Navigator/Photos/CivilPics/first_register/lvg_biii_obibi.htm
Cheers!
