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

  1. The same track that the Revell Japan molds were destroyed?
  2. It was all over this site when it happened I think back in March.
  3. Craft works was, but I think they gave up on it.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. My aversion to resin rests on the dust being so hazardous.
  10. Hasegawa had made a bunch of ‘30s fighters and bombers in 1/32. ‘30s racing planesI have them all in my stash. Another company, Williams Brothers, made a bunch of 1/32 racing planes. Also Limburg made two, but one was a GeeBee, which Williams Bros also had. Remember that the P-36 was prewar also. You can use Grey Matter Figures makes an early P-38 set to backdate a Revell P-38J.
  11. Grey matter Figures GMAA3209 1/32 Spitfire 21/24 correction set.
  12. 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.
  13. I think the reason that the model interest has gone from the Century Series to the 20s and 30s other than the fact that they are few and far between, but those of us that remember the 100, 101, 104, etc... flying overhead, who’d prefer them are slowly disappearing. But believe me, if you ever saw an F-101 sitting next to an F-104, you’d never forget it. I can still fantasize one of each next to each other in 1/32. I remember someone saying the 101 is just too big, but Trumperer does make the F-105G of which the actual jet is only inches smaller, which is hard to tell the difference.
  14. The original Spirit of St Louis is at the Smithsonian, but the second one used in the movie is at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn Michigan.
