    Not much reference on this. However, on my vacation to Rheinbeck, I found a display model of such a craft.

    I think that it's a really neat plane, and would like to see a paper model of it. Has anyone else heard of this?

    Anyone...

    Sure - it's always right at the top of the "Worst Aircraft of WW1" lists.

    I've never come across a card model of it, but I don't imagine it would be too dicey provided some music wire or similar was used to support the pulpit.

    What you want is MiniData File number 4 from Albatros Publications. http://www.windsockdatafilespecials.com/stock.html

    In fact, if you want to know ANYTHING about First World War aircraft, check out this company first. Ray Rimmell is a world-acknowledged ultra expert, and along with his team of writers has put together a fantastic source of information. His models are pretty special, too.....

    Must have been quite a fine feeling for the gunner with that propeller just behind your back and a big rotary engine milling away, waiting to munch your bones in the next noseover. *shudders*
