  1. even with the cockpit open i'd be wary of spending so much effort on an instrument panel. if yahu don't have one yet i'm sure they will, these are easy and look great... experten... anyone got one to look at? how's the shape?
  2. i'm looking forward to the 70020 boxing, which hasn't been released yet. it's got some very interesting 303 Squadron markings: RF E, a ship Urbanowicz got 9 claims in, it's also the first ship Zumbach had Donald Duck painted on. i'll also need the 'expert set, as i want to build both Glowacki's SD A and Frantisek's RF R. got 6 overtrees. already had the Skalski decal set (from Hannant's, now they only have 1/48) so 2 ships will go to Skalski (hey i'm a collect the whole set). One will be Kentowski's RF J from the Techmod sheet. i may do another 303 Squadron ship, or i may hold 2 back for other options, maybe Burges' blue Malta recon ship, or another Battle of Britain ship (Tuck, McKellar, etc... sooo many possibilities). can you tell i'm delighted with this release? small Eastern European companies are making big waves. Copper State's 1/32 Nieuport 17s are gorgeous kits. regarding shipping, i'm in Thailand. expensive shipping's part of my life. that said i notice that the shipping is in tiers, so play around with your cart and see how much you can put in it til the shipping jumps up past the pain point. i found it cheaper to order 6 overtrees first then order the Expert set later....

    And Wingnuts' Christmas announcement is....

    superb boxing. here's a link to the backstory of the duel in question: http://www.theaerodrome.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35739 short version: the Re.8 captured the Halberstadt intact.

    i think it was an O/100.

    WNW FE.2b (early) sold out

    the WNW site now shows the FE.2b (early ) as sold out. they're out at Weta too. Hannant's and a few other retailers have it still. i just got one from Model Hobbies 'cause although they are GBP 10 more than Hannants, they have more favorable shipping options (for me, in Thailand, the Land of Extortionate Import taxes). there were less than 100 in stock at WNW in January, so this is not unexpected...
  7. people have been speculating like crazy about the books... that was indeed one of them. along with French Aircraft of the First World War and Austro Hungarian Army Aircraft of World War One...however the bottom of the stack is what's most interesting: Windsock Breguet 14. that said, in spite of all the post it notes in the books, it doesn't really tell us much about what he's up to. they've dismissed the idea of a SPAD repeatedly. that said, they also said they a) wouldn't be kitting stuff if a good one already existed and b) would stick to WWI... the Lancaster threw all that out the window. i'd not be interested in a Nieuport 17 if the Copper State one lives up to the 3d renders. and Scaroni scored all 26 of his kills in a Hanriot HD.1 from all this we can conclude only one thing with certainty: the next release will be a Dr.I... <hides>
  8. Got a newsletter from WNW this morning... The Halberstadts are available for preorder already. US$129, direct. That was a *very* small gap between announcement and preorder! Also, they mentioned that a couple more World War One kits are in the queue. I think this bodes well for a "Christmas Surprise"...
  9. the Copper State figures shown are the ones already out. Raoul Lufbery (Nieuports, SPADs) Francesco Baracca (Nieuports, SPADs) Godwin von Brumowksi (various A-H ships, mainly OEFFAG Albatros D.IIIs, which could be converted from the Roden kits using the Copper State engine) Hermann Goering (he's holding the walking stick handed down from Richthofen, so this should go with a D.VII). i've got the Luf figure, it's a splendid bit of sculpting. they also have an Arthur Cobby figure that's based on a photo of him in front of a camel. it's worth noting that they don't tend to label who these pilots *are*, perhaps they're hoping to sell more if people see them as generic figures. however, the likenesses are spot on.

    WNW to announce 3 new kits

    i don't think it's an indication they are abandoning WWI. i'm not upset. quite underwhelmed though. i do WWII stuff, and sometimes even 1/32 (mostly 1/72, never 1/48). i'll even do a Dambusters Lanc.... but almost certainly in 1/72. any word on the 3rd kit? BF109?

    WNW to announce 3 new kits

    i'm still a bit skeptical of the lancaster announcement. *only* source i can find is hyperscale. i suspect someone might be playing a prank.

    WNW to announce 3 new kits

    i think, 43 and 44 are British-built and American-built DH.4s, and 62 a Roland D.II. what i'd prefer though, would be an 0/400, Mouromets, and Staaken....
