  1. It probably went the way of the rest of the Century Series promised by Trumpeter that never happened.
  2. 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.
  3. My new Big T is a rerelease from Revell and it’s a three in one.
  4. 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.
  5. The Duelist RE.8/ CL.ll amazes me. The real RE.8 in the kit forced down the CL.ll. The RE.8 was rumored to want to catch on fire if you turned to port or spun out of control if you tried to turn starboard, yet this RE.8 was able to force down a German two seat fighter.
  6. What I really loved about WnWs amongst other things is that I already had a late Halberstadt CLll, but wanted another RE.8, but the Duelist I just got, had another late CLll. Well the WnWs sprues have the parts for both versions, so all I have to do is follow the online instructions and build an Early CLll.
  7. I can’t beliece that idiot on EBay trying to sell a WnWs Camel for over $400. And the other guy trying to sell the 3 Albatroses for $700.00. Simply rediculous. Most of the sellers are being sensible.
  8. I’m looking forward to the Belgium markings on the Nie.23. Actually the Vampire will go on the Nieuport and the Belgium Comet will go on the Hobbycraft SPAD Xlll. A SPAD Xlll in Belgium markings is on display at the Musee du Militaire in Brussels. I enjoy seeing it and the other WW1 planes there, which includes the last original Nie.17. It is in French markings and not Belgium as people might think.
  9. Then why are French Aircraft marked with regular numbers and not Roman Numerals on the Aircraft?
  10. Thanks to you, it probably will go to page 2.
  11. I’m sad for you guys and gals who wanted the WnWs Dr-1, but believe me, thanks to Eduard, Pheon, and Aviattic, Roden can be made into decent Dr-1s. And if Pheon holds true to their promise, you’ll be able to make any Dr-1 that you desire.
  12. My last two ever WnWs just arrived today, the RE-8/ CL-ll. I have one of each already, but I have a Pheon RE-8 sheet with Belgium markings. I also got my Dolphin. I guess it’s Roden from now on unless something changes.
  13. Funny that I still love the Big T, even if it really has no comparison to the Pocher cars and the DeAgostini Cobra that I have.
  14. You know your getting old when you decide to go into the past and build a model like you got for Christmas as a teen, but you grew up. I got a Monogram Big T, but for kicks got some CA plates. Being in my seventies, knew a change had to be made to put the plates on the car. I made sure it had mufflers otherwise the State wouldn’t have allowed the car to be registered.
