argh, sorry -- is it too late to cancel and reorder? (will slow things down but you'll get the discount)

Gotha G.VI wheels -- yes sure. After the Pfalz D.IIIa.

addendum to the above -- Zavod, it looks like your order is still pending. I think you can cancel it for a full refund and reorder at the sale price. It will of course cause your order to go to the back of the queue again, but...

I'm not concerned, what's a few bucks among friends  :), if you do the Gotha wheels it will all work itself out

These are the Albatros Tireless wheels in the premium FXD material (shown primed but otherwise as they come).

I got mine, I'm really impressed.  The natural rubber tires fit perfect.  I'm actually pulling out my Albatros out of moth balls, I'm gonna do Richtofen's all red D V.  Please keep making parts......Seats, cushions, ammo chutes, fuel tank?  I'm nervous about the louvers being warped on the radiator?  What are your thoughts?

Hopefully they didn't arrive warped?! (My proof parts didn't.) Yes, those fins are about as thin as you can get with this acrylic stuff and that is the danger. Easy does it with the acetone bath. I suggest just a quick dunk to get the goop off the outer surfaces. Cleaning the slots manually with sandpaper is tedious but rewarding. See my instructions for the suggested procedure and please ask whatever questions you have for clarification etc.
