Greetings From Canada

been a lurker for a while, thought I would say hello.

I enjoy different aspects of both major airwars, WWI it is the newness of it all, and as the say..'the daring young men in those crazy flying kites that are often more dangerous than the enemy'.

WWII it is the peak technology, and the true scale it reached.
Yet the parallels are amazingly similar to me.

I am doing as much research on Albatros's as I can find. Building an entire plane is probably not realistic...but I hope to create a fin/rudder soon (not sure what model(s)). I am still collecting what plans and info I can come across.

Collecting wise, my only WWI related items are a couple of artifacts from the movie 'dawn patrol'.
