Having recently purchased and read a book on Austro-Hungarian aces that came recommended on our forum, when it came to my attention that Eduard had produced models of said aircraft, I went ahead and purchased one off of ebay.

While Mike Marra (hey Mike, where ARE you, buddy!) could probably locate a better deal, I got a brand new one from Poland for $16.33 shipped.  It is the Eduard Week-end edition.  I have gotten a number of models from Poland, with very reasonable prices, and cheap shipping!

Back to the aircraft, for those who may not know....while it is an Albatros D III in effect, there are some differences between the Albatros and the ones produces by Oeffag, the most obvious being that they did away with the spinner, at least for a lot of the aircraft they produced.  It also had a different, higher powered engine, and was built with stronger wings.  

Glencoe also sold a model of the Austro-Hungarian Oeffag 153, but the reviews on it are TERRIBLE.

Great pick up Captain. Would love to see it built. The Glencoe model was incredibly AWFUL. bored2death So hopefully the Eduard version will be a much nicer kit and will go together much easier.
