A stir of Echoes from the past. - I, like many others have been a fan of Ray Rimell''s Albatros pub. Ltd. since his early years. If you are thinking of treating yourslf to hours of fun before you crack open a model box, pick up the relevant issue of the Windsock Datafile. You will find some great historical, technical and colour information. Even those who disagree on the topic of what this was or what colour that was, will tell you it begins with the reference material.

Thank-you for the review on these books . Over the past few months I have been working on getting these datafiles and they are a must to have . I only know of one place thats sells them , Roll Models . Is there any where else to which some one can purchase them ?

I just might go for the subscription in the end , but I don't know if they still do that .

Roll Models is about the best place in the USA to get them. Ofherwise you can purchase direct from Ray. They have a new-er shopping cart form that seems pretty secure.

Do you happen to know if I could still get the one on the Felixstowe? I searched and could not find one still available.
Thanks

Check the Datafile #82.

Also it looks like a Part of Poland fret is available.

I have the datafile and is most helpful for the build . Wasn't aware that Part has a PE set for this aircraft , when did this come out ? I don't see it listed in their catalogue at all .

Do you have a link to the item ?
