    For me, it will be the UWD. and a pidgeon.

    DH.50 info

    If the DH4 radiator won't fit, would the 9A? ( Honestly don't know the difference off hand, but suggesting it anyway) regards Pete in RI

    DH.50 info

    Hi guys, I just checked my WNW's kits, and the wings are different. The 9A is longer and wider than the 9. The fin and rudder are the same. Hope this helps, regards Pete in RI.

    Pup Cowling

    Brian Fawcett does a resin Pup cowling with the external brackets. You could do that type with one panel removed. Regards Pete in RI

    Catching Pictures in the Air

    Morning all, Pete in Rhode Island here. I would just like to say that I have been buying sets from David for many years and have always received the best service, including parts being sent to different addresses during the life of a project over here in the USA. Regards Pete.

    A Bit of WNW speculation

    lolololol......just had a mind cartoon looking at those pics, how about a dio with a couple of erks cutting out a repair patch from a 55 gallon drum or sheet of corrogated roof metal and a couple of REALLY big hammers and chisels handy!

    A Bit of WNW speculation

    Got to agree there, but WNW's mouldings are beautiful, so that's a redeeming quality.

    A Bit of WNW speculation

    hhmmmm....just the first announcement. now THAT'S an interesting thought. On the rigging side of things, the only way to overcome any hesitation is to just do it. The thought of it is probably way more oppressive the the actual doing. Especially now we have the elastic threads available. It is actually rather easy, even more so in 1/32 where we have room to work, as opposed to 1/72 or 1/48 which we did before. Anyway, to all those trepidicious hearts out there....try it, you'll like it.

    Defiant 1/48 Trumpeter vs Airfix

    Hi, get the Airfix. The Trumpeter has so many shape and detail issues that I would choose a Classic Airframes kit before tfat one. Also Eduard do some nice photo etch for the Defiant. Regards Pete.
  14. Hi Morty, nice start. Good choice on the Pontos set, it goes a long way in correcting most of the kits issues. Check out the builds on the model warships website, under picture post/work in progress. Also there is the HMS Hood Association website. Eduard also do a bunch of PE sets for thekit too. Regards, Pete in RI.

    Hawker Fury propeller colour....

    that's a good photo for this topic. if you look closely at the lead a/c, the rear of the blade is very dark (black) and the front of the blade is much lighter, and as the sun is coming from behind the a/c, the front blade is in shadow, and still appears much light than the back of the blade that is in the sunlight.
