    When I bought my first PC, I paid quite a bit of money to upgrade the hard disk to 170 MB (that "M" is correct). Since then, I've built all the others. I had a Western Digital go bad while it was still under warranty; they had a replacement on my door step two days later. It had a tiny bit less capacity than the original. Four days after that an exact replacement arrived, even though I had not contacted them about the discrepancy. They didn't ask for the smaller one back.
     
    They earned a customer for life that day.

    I didn't think it would be an LSP.  At my LHS, the military models section has shrunk to 1/5th of what it was a year and a half ago.  Downright depressing.

    My reason to be cheerful is this. It looks like I won't have my foot amputated. Such a relief. One more operation in 3 weeks and it should be sweet.

    Is that why I start so many kits? So I don't get accused of being a collector?

    I try to avoid acquiring more kits than I can ever build by rearranging my stash every now and then so that it looks like I have new stuff.  So far this hasn't worked all that well.

    Well, out of the 350 unbuilt kits in my stash, I really want to build about 600 of them.

    Like it or not, 3D printing is here, and it's not going to go away. As the population of modelers ages, the eyes aren't what they once were, and the hands may not be as steady either. If a modeler chooses to go this route, it's his (or her) prerogative.

    I of course have no idea how actual sales went for WNW, but I do recall that way more than once, when a new kit was announced, I'd just scratch my head and wonder why. Some of the very early releases still hadn't sold out, even after nearly ten years of availability, whereas others; Fokker D.VIIs and Albatros Vs, seem to sell out a whole lot quicker. I can easily see why even the most ardent of WWI aviation fans, would balk at some of the bizarre choices of kits released.
