I'm going to be testing out Tamiya's newest decal solvent. I've had mixed results with their "Strong" formula so I'm hopeful that this newest product is as "Super Strong" as they claim.
I'll also be testing it along side a few other decal solv[...]

As far as I can remember, I have always build airplanes, even when I modelled at a (much) younger age.
Recently I received an invitation to join the 'Naval ships and boats' group from David Kopielski @davids_models, thanks David.
This aircraft was built as part of the “Imperial German Air Service / Luftwaffe Group Build May 1st, 1910, to Present Day” group build.
Maj. Wolfgang Spate was the commanding officer of EKdo 16 (Erprobungskommando 16 or Test Command 16).
