Whilst W.W.I aircraft can be massively challenging models to build it should be noted that the stick and rudder flying experience can also concentrate the mind. Put all this together in a 1/3-scale, highly detailed airframe, form a squadron and you have the makings of the famed Dawn Patrol. It's an addictive combination that appears to be going global. Arnaldo Correia introduces the Spanish wing.
