First three were Benz.  Rest were Maybach.

 

 

Thanks!  So maybe hope for a single "early" KDW, although I think if we did get a flying boat, Id actually prefer the CC.

The Hansa Brandenburg CC number 24 was Gottfried Banfield's if I recall correctly. He was one of the most famous Austro Hungarian aces. He had a long and fascinating life, and was possibly the only ace to achieve five victories in a flying boat.

 

Any of these kit possibilities could be very interesting, I am very pleased to see talk of an Austro Hungarian subject.

Banfield flew a few types but yes he is worth reading up on, and worthy of a WNW kit.

You'd need to do some surgery on the nose, the extent of which depends on whether WNW made a series 53, 153 or 253 aircraft, plus there were other minor differences.

 

That's, of course, assuming WNW are making an Albatros D.III (Oeffag). There were a number of other Austro-Hungarian aircraft that used the Austro-Daimler 6. Brandenburg D.I, anyone?

Hmmm...looks like Copper State Models might just beat WNW to kitting the D.I!

 

From their FB page, confirmed it's 1/32.

The 225 HP Austro Daimler was also used on the MAG version of the Fokker D VII. I hope WNW will do one and thus "complete" the D VII family. I, for one, will be very pleased with one.

Interesting how many options come from an engine. Certainly has got the speculation going!
