Well David, welcome back!
Have fun building the Albatros and when you need help, just put a question in the newsfeed!

Based on your kit, you want to fully get back, ha? Building the Albatros with all bells and whistles! Thats cool!

@Holger I'd like to begin where I left this wonderful hobby. I don't expect myself to build a competition kit, I will do my best though. This one will be ready to fly - open canopy, flaps down and elevators in neutral position. I'm going to use new cockpit, wheels and nozzle. This particular kit is known for some errors around the canopy, so I'll replace it as well. Since it's a training jet, there's no armament which means less work for a starter. I hope the result will be good enough to show off around here

Hey David, its all about having fun!
And thats most important to me! I dont want to make models for competitions (My skills are far too low for that
), i just want to have fun, doing research and watch out for historical inf´s about the particular plane/kit etc.!
So i wish you good luck and a steady hand while building your plane!

@Holger Speaking of competitions, I am going to ask you something via PM.

I'm back! This kit needs a lot of care scribing wise. I've filled some sunken areas around the tail fin, two surplus hatch covers on wings plus one air duct on right avionic bay cover. Then I've sanded off bulges on wing root and on the main gear wheel bay doors (they're on ZA variant, not on C). I also drilled some holes for vents, APU and compressed air pressure gauge. There's still a lot to do on the surface, including rescribing, repairs of my faults, and such.
