Great set. These figures will look good next to an aircraft. Now we just need them in 1/48 as well.

great reference for Albert is the current issue of 'Avions' magazine no. 179 - http://www.avions-bateaux.com
part 1 of a two-part feature by Many Souffan covers his Armée de l'Air career, his 'escape' from Vichy north Africa in his D.520 across the Straits of Gibraltar, his arrival in the UK and service with 340 Sqn ( Ile de France) prior to his departure for Russia in August 1942 (16 pages..). Can't wait for part 2...
