Agreed with everyone else...WNW will need to make one before yours has the least bit of competition.  Awesome finish and cunning brake!

With much admiration...Dan

I'm thinking now that I could have made that brake operational via the lever in the cockpit, there's always next time I guess!  ;)

Beautiful and precise build. So that thing between the wheels is a brake? That was really kind of primitive, guess it would rather dig grooves in the runway, especially when it was muddy...

Thank Cajun!  To be honest with you, I was a little bit iffy myself when I started it and I thought I'd just do one thing at a time and see how it went.  Turned out to be some of the most fun I've ever had building a model.  I advise you to start yours immediately!

  Dan,
The Albatros  is absolutely beautiful my friend. Having built countless vacuforms myself I can appreciate the skills needed to do the kit justice and you have done just that. Even more impressing is it's in 1/72........OUTSTANDING !
Highest Regards,
