    Almost certainly the book from Flying Machine Press, authored by Davilla and Soltan, "French Aircraft of the First World War."

    "Hi Ron,
    Thank you for your inquiry and concern.
    Most people in China are taking extended New Year holidays at present. There will no doubt be some additional procedures that the people who are transporting goods from factories in mainland China to ports will need to contend with. So there probably will be some delays but as it is a developing situation no one can estimate what delays (if any) there will be to Wingnut Wings production. 
    The biggest determining factor remains the fact that no Wingnut Wings model will go into production until I have approved the tooling.

    Regards
    Richard

    "... Yes it’s quite unique - kind of chunky looking bird. "
     
    Even chunkier with the so-called "baby coffin" enclosed MG mount on the upper wing.  There are a raft of schemes for the D.I, most of which have unpainted plywood fuselages with large geometric shapes or letters and CDL wings.  Linke-Crawford (27 victories) was a well-known user of this aircraft as well as the Phonix D.I and Aviatik(Berg) D.I (WNW please add these to future releases.)

    Hoping to put this sub-thread to rest, MVR flew at least seven F.I/Dr.I:
     
    F.I 102/17 September 1917 - Factory finish of Olive streaks over all upper sufaces and fuselage sides; "Fokker blue" base coat.
    Dr.I 127/17 Mid-March 1918 - Red cowling, struts and wheel disks.  Olive streaked upper surfaces and fuselage sides over clear-doped linen (CDL.)  Light blue undersurfaces.
    Dr.I 152/17 March 1918 - Red cowling, struts, rear fuselage and tailplane, top of upper wing and wheel disks.  Otherwise as 127/17.
    Dr.I 161/17 March 1918 - Red cowling, struts, tailplane, top of upper wing and wheel disks.  Otherwise as 127/17.
    Dr.I 405/17 January 1918 - Red wheel disks.  Otherwise as 127/17.
    Dr.I 425/17 March/April 1918 - Red overall.
    The above all had the earlier curved arm cross (Cross Pattee.)  425/17 was updated with the straight arm cross (Balkenkreuz) in late March/early April shortly before Richtofen's death.
    Dr.I 477/17 Early April 1918 - same scheme as 161/17 with Balkenkreuz as 425/17.

    I encountered this  a couple months ago and was told by WNW that you can pay with your PayPal balance but not with a bank transfer.  In other words, move money to your PayPal account before ordering, then do the ordering process.  It worked fine for me.
