  1. Well yes I am a WW1 aviation fan who for years was hooked on 1/72 scale. This is why I joined IPMS IN 1978 to get advice on rigging models. The rest is history. Anyway last December I decided to add to my 1 WNW's kit, a box damaged Rumpler and WHAT a good move it was. These kits are b.....y marvellous and invite great care and attention. Oh yes I saw this coming but it still hurts so I sincerely hope something good will emerge.
  2. A wonderful HB W12 arrived from over the penines with a good price considering my cheeky bid for a D1v on Ebay was blown away in the slipstream for £156. Moral, stick to those traders you know. They are the the way, the truth and the light!

    Little Fokkers

    Just a quick heads up, Eduard 1/72 Fokkers Dv11's Alb have arrived at Hannants. Goody goddy.


    Requiem for a dream. Brilliant kits, just glad I got those Albatroses last month.
  5. Just got another WnW Albatros' J18 and have ordered Wnw Tripe Hound and HB W12 from a well known northern model shop. I'd better get a move on!
  6. Hobo you have been reading my thoughts as I have been saying this for months Wnw' s biggies looked over indulgent and when the releases of Albatros and pfalz came along I suspected cash flow issues. Very sad and I MUST BUY MORE!
  7. Oh dear join the club. I broke my humerus running for the tram, 15th March, I have had to try left handed modelling( no not a Phantom ) it's just the pits
  8. A word of warning don't buy cheap tools. My bargain set of drill bits were just BLUNT. Think twice !
  9. Hurray won an Ebay auction on a WNW Hawa with a bit of Eduard photo etch. These kits look awesome and very juicy now I can afford a few. True to form the next build will be a Roden Siemens D111 to cut my teeth so to speak. Jasta 12 livery. Now a question for you folk. What are the merits of RR's build books on WNW's kits when they provide a " book " with each kit,
  10. Well I just hope you guys find a new venue, it would be a real shame if Southern Expo just drifted away.
  11. I have searched the ipms Bolton page and have nothing re the show or Mike Balwin
  12. COUGH COUGH splutter , what's been cancelled ? Where is the info.
