  1. Really matter which von Richthofen?
  2. That upper wing has zero dihedral. One way suggested to to fix it is to lay in a flat bottomed washbasin with a weight in the middle and pour in hot water. The lower wings do bend up. Not sure if they need more bending than they already have. The inner struts are also said to be 6mm too long. I've read builds which suggest simply cutting that much out. If you decide to use the 28 Sqn kit decals, the nose color is wrong as instructed. All other references show the fuselage as PC10 overall, including the cowling.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. A little background on a squandered airplane. http://www.dingeraviation.net/henley/hawker_henley.htm
  6. Charles Pears' painting--probably from life--of QE in 1918. Only one platform.
  7. And a little farther back, Mervyn Johns (R.E.8's) Bob Cratchett was Biggles:
  8. One option, but not for the faint of heart: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234982308-1350-hms-storm/

    Not all that surprising, really. More news here: http://www.modellmarine.de/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=5463:spielwarenmesse-nuernberg2019-bericht&catid=185

  11. 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?
  12. And now it's in stock. https://starling-models.co.uk/gb/2_starling-models?orderby=price&orderway=desc
  13. 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.
