  1. Compare and contrast: https://modelingmadness.com/review/w1/tc/tmcpd3.htm https://modelingmadness.com/review/w1/tc/tmcpfalz.htm Same reviewer, same plane, different kits. He lays out the differences well.
  2. Apparently the bonus in the Aoshima 1/700 HMS Cornwall kit is a old S-class DD--HMS Tenedos. http://https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10633864
  3. A little background on a squandered airplane. http://www.dingeraviation.net/henley/hawker_henley.htm
  4. Anyone remember this?
  5. Charles Pears' painting--probably from life--of QE in 1918. Only one platform.
  6. And a little farther back, Mervyn Johns (R.E.8's) Bob Cratchett was Biggles:
  7. One option, but not for the faint of heart: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234982308-1350-hms-storm/

    ICM 1/32 Gladiator

  10. Mine arrived two days ago. The one piece hull is one of the most complex sets of shapes ever, and the molding is beautiful. The finish as well. I'd be afraid to try modding it to make a Group II. Maybe Pit Road will think of reissuing theirs--or someone else will copy it in injection. I'm so far planning on a Far East boat. Every pic I've found of them out there shows a dark overall color--any clue if it's blue or grey?
  11. And now it's in stock. https://starling-models.co.uk/gb/2_starling-models?orderby=price&orderway=desc
  12. No, it's not WNW level of detail, but as originally marketed, it was a long way below the WNW price. Even today I think a new issue would sell for less than half the WNW lowest price. It's a kit that can be built right out of the box as a fine representation. And as we see here, in the hands of a master, a masterpiece.
  13. The Hobbycraft molds for this kit seem to be in the same warehouse as the Lost Ark.
  14. That picture of Rhys Davids: Rhys Davids himself wrote, "Isn't it comic? He did me wearing my flying kit, a flying cap and burberry, sitting down in a chair and looking nowhere. I didn't think it was like me, but I'm no judge." Upon viewing it after her brother's death, Rhys Davids' sister Vivian wrote: "It certainly grows on you.Painting him like that with his cap on has made his face look so absurdly long, but I was more reconciled when I discovered that quarter smile; an expression in which he seems to be just sucking in his cheeks, so as not to laugh, and saying, 'Lord , what futile rot this all is.'"
