    Hmm, let's see........... could it be airplanes?

  1. I just ordered the only 1/32nd Roden WW1 plane that I didn’t have, but not from the Ukraine.
  2. anyone’s guess whether any other WnWs kits will ever get released other than the Fokker Dr-1 or the Aveo Lancaster?

  4. The same track that the Revell Japan molds were destroyed?
  5. It was all over this site when it happened I think back in March.
  6. Craft works was, but I think they gave up on it.
  7. I do have 4, but they were hard to order. I think when people realize how good they are, maybe business will pick up. I do have lots of Roden Nieuports and a bunch of Hobbycraft Nie 17s. The interiors aren’t all that detailed, but you really can’t see all that much anyway. Except the observer/bomber crew areas which have large open areas, you don’t need to have all that detail anyway.
  8. It would seem that Sir Richard didn’t think that the French were even in the War. He only produced the one French plane that was heavily used by the US in 1918, even if he did make a Salmson in French markings.
  9. A SPAD Xlll with an engine would be great since a lot of SPADs had the side louvers removed and replaced with screens. I never could figure out why no one wants multiplace airplanes. That was what I found refreshing about WnWs.
  10. I’m still waiting on a DC-3/C-47. DeAgostini makes a detailed DC-3, but The skin is too saggy plus it’s way too pricy.
  11. I’m also going to build both Luke and Werner’s SPAD. Years ago there was a company making a corrected instrument surround, which I fortunately bought 2, and I have the screens and engines, but instead of WnWs, I bought Roden, since you won’t see much of it anyway. For the color mixing instructions, I have both WnWs Salmsons and will refer to their colors. I am also going to use the new Nieuport 23 Belgium Shooting Star and also an engine and louvre screen to make a model of the Belgium SPAD that I saw at the Musee du Millitaire in Brussels.
  12. Grey matter Figures GMAA3209 1/32 Spitfire 21/24 correction set.
  13. I know the old Paragon made a correction kit. Maybe Grey Matter Figures took over reproducing a lot of the Paragon releases. You might contact them.
  14. My solid wood model started last Autumn when I saw an ad for a North Central Airlines DC-3 by PlaneArts Models. It was marked exactly like the first plane I ever flew in in 1950 from Sault Ste. Marie Michigan to Detroit. The only thing different was the number on the plane, which they were more than happy to change for me. A couple weeks ago, they advertised a Boeing 737-400. This time I have a photo of her first plane ride. So I immediately ordered that too. My DC-3 came out beautifully.
  15. Actually, I had read that some pilots could use the RE-8 as well as any other two seaters, even Btisfits. I guess the bad performance rumors came about because it was so ugly. I consider it like the rumors that canaries were put in the wings of longhorns and shorthorns. It the canaries escaped, that meant that a wire had come off.
