It is an Austro-Daimler 6 so my guess would be either the Albatros D3 or we are getting an Aviatik

Either one would be great but the D3 is a real beauty. I keep hoping for more and earlier Albatros's.

Well spotted sir!

So some of the decals in the MVR Albatros D.Va boxing were intended for the Roden DR.1, and now we're getting a WNW  DR.1. There are also decals in that box for the Roden Albatros D.III. So maybe now we'll get a WNW D.III!

It’s looking more likely!

Couldn’t agree more.

Sorry to rain on everyone's parade but if it's an Austro-Daimler 6 (and it sure looks like one), then it can't be a standard Albatros D.III only the Austro-Hungarian version i.e. the Albatros D.III (Oeffag). The standard Albatros D.III used the Mercedes D.IIIa engine. It does mean we're likely to be getting something Austro-Hungarian from WNW for the first time, though.

With a merc engine it could be kitted as a German Alb 111?

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?

I'd be up for a Albatros D.III (Oeffag).  Know very little about these aircraft but apparently, they were very capable planes.

The number of aircraft using the Austro-Daimler 6 engine is significant.  The Phoenix D.II's and C.II's ,  the aforementioned  AH Albatros Oeffag's (a/k/a "old fags"), the Hansa Brandenburg C.1 and D.1, Lohner C.1, the MAG Fokkers, Aviattic Berg. D.1's and just about any other AH aircraft that had an in-line engine in it.
