Default 1/2a WW1 Biplane kits

Can anyone steer me in the direction of some 1/2a WW1 biplane kits. .10 displacement and under.

I remember seeing some from a manufacture some years ago.
Was wondering if anyone is still selling any

What are you looking for airplane wise? Kavan has some nice electric WWI aircraft out, they shouldn't be to hard to convert.

I looked at the Dare website and noticed that they recommend an OK Cub .049 for glow power. I guess that's so you'd have an engine of the same vintage as a DR1.

I did some looking around and it turns out that OK Engines is still kicking. I was sure they were long gone.

Sorry for getting OT.
Guillows sells 4 WWI bipes. They have converted these kits to laser cutting so they should be good.
