  1. Same here - the Viggen will be only the second jet kit in my stash (after the HK Meteor)
  2. I'm in - confirmation email recieved!
  3. It's on their Facebook page
  4. It certainly wasn't. There are recorded cases of pilots shooting at men in parachutes from all sides of the conflict.
  5. Would you build, say, a Spitfire or Hurricane in the markings of Douglas Bader then?
  6. Wear a mask and wet sand. Problem solved.
  7. They were compared to what WNW kits are selling for on Ebay right now!
  8. The Fokker E.V/D.VIII was a re-pop of the Avis kit, so I'm interested to see how the Magister compares.
  9. The timing of the crash was unfortunate, to say the least. Hannants put a load of WNW kits up for sale (all with damaged boxes) but I couldn't log on to tell anyone - they're all gone now, they all sold within a couple of hours.

    I heard that Rover were only paying Tata £900 for each vehicle, yet they were selling them in the UK for nearly £7k. It might not have been so bad if the Rover management had sold them for a more realistic price.

    You sure Vauxhall and Rover can be classed as great car companies? Vauxhall has made nothing but dire crap since 1945 (the only good Vauxhalls were re-badged Opals) and has constantly been on the verge of collapse since the 1980's. Whereas Rover made a car - the CityRover, a re-badged Tata Indica - that was so bad they refused to lend one to Top Gear for them to review, and it actually hastened the demise of the company just two years after it was released.
  12. Ah, but you see a WNW thread that goes drifting off in other directions is not exactly, shall we say, unwelcome for the mods. They have their reasons why they don't want endless WNW speculation, but equally they don't want to lock every WNW thread as soon as it pops up lest it be viewed by some members as heavy-handed moderation. Closing or re-naming this thread is only going to encourage a new WNW thread to appear, so a little thread drift occuring does no harm...no criticism of the mods here (and I'm not suggesting it's some sort of official policy), but whether it's muscle cars or your tipple of choice, there does seem to be a pattern to WNW threads goin' a'driftin. So let's do the mods a favour and enjoy the odd bit of thread drift. If you're keen on discussing what's happening with WNW I can highly recommend the forums at http://forum.ww1aircraftmodels.com or http://forum.largescalemodeller.com, or the Wingnut Wings Fans group on Facebook.
  13. Also 85% of the UK's annual rainfall...
  14. Sounds pretty much like they're going to sell off the remaining stock at some point then. I have 72 WNW kits in the stash, so I should be OK for a while - although I'd be tempted to get another Gotha G.IV and SE.5a, when the Ebay prices eventually drop.
  15. And my house is older than your country!
