  1. So what? Dictionaries get 'corrected' all the time.
  2. I know you're talking about Webster. He was only a mere 51 years behind Johnson in publishing a dictionary.
  3. By 'American' I take it you mean Samuel Johnson, an Englishman who compiled the world's first dictionary about 30 years before your country existed...
  4. Y'see, now we have to pick a punishment for you if WNW do manage to get it out for under $399...
  5. If you're from anywhere other than the US, mould is the green stuff you find on bread when it's gone off.
  6. That looks like utter steaming pile of dog turd.
  7. Depending on where you live overseas, £10.50 could be a bargain.
  8. ICM make three versions of the I-153 in 1/32, but sadly at this point no I-15 or I-152.
  9. I do think that there's also a 'Cult of Tamiya' going on, too. Members are seen to visibly twitch and reach for their keyboards the instant someone says that WNW are better than Tamiya! The truth is this - Tamiya and WNW are currently the best two companies when it comes to 1/32 aircraft kit manufacturers. Now, some things Tamiya does better than WNW, and some things WNW does better than Tamiya. Tamiya has cocked-up at least one thing in every one of their 1/32 kits. WNW have cocked-up at least one thing in every one of their kits. Arguing over which manufacturer is better is an entirely pointless exercise. Instead we should just be thankful that we have two very-high quality manufacturers producing 1/32 aircraft kits - after all, we might have neither and be left with the questionable talents of Trumpeter as the sole mainstream 1/32 aircraft kit manufacturer.
  10. Now that's the truth. Just as we all slate a kit on the internet, do you think that manufacturers look at our completed builds and burst out into laughter at the crappy job we've done building them?
  11. To be fair, though, there's also a hypocrisy in people already writing off the WNW Lanc because of what they've seen on a few CAD drawings whilst at the same time saying that their current WWI kits have never been properly scrutinised due to a 'lack' of documentation around WWI aircraft. WNW will release the Lanc. Some will be easily able to afford it, some cannot. Some will love the oil canning effect, some will detest it. The good news is that people who really, really want a 1/32 Lanc can choose between the WNW and HKM kits.
  12. Yep, Airfix did it before WNW and IIRC it wasn’t too bad. I have a feeling some else tried it before Airfix, but I can’t for the life of me remember who.
  13. I think one of those build threads was by Ernie who, along with a few others, left in a bit of a huff a while ago after the handbags came out. I suspect as part of their departure they wanted anything they had ever done on the site removing.
  14. I'd take those comments with a pinch of salt. At this point in time no-one outside of WNW knows whether that area is going to be detailed or not.
  15. I can. In fact, I can afford to get two of them if I wanted. Not sure what it proves. In any case, the Lanc will be a bargain compared to MFH's 1/12 scale car kits. Their Ferrari 250 TR sells for about £800 a pop.
  16. The Brengun set is only PE parts, though.
  17. Weirdly enough, the only Australian in the UK that I know is also the only person I know who drinks Fosters!
  18. I reckon WNW will regret kitting the Lanc. From now on all they'll get is bombarded by people telling them that they're utter, utter idiots and total amateurs because the diameter of the screws on the compass housing is out by a millionth of an inch, and therefore the kit is completely unbuildable (all whilst conveniently ignoring the various issues that crop up in, say, a Tamiya kit). Should've stuck with WWI. As we all know, the only surviving record of any WWI aircraft is Snoopy's Dog House so they could have carried on flogging kits of fictional aircraft like the Gotha UWD, and no-one would be any the wiser.
  19. I asked, and they're not making a Mac-specific version so you'll either have to have a dual-boot system or run it in a VM.
  20. These are pics from Microsoft's demo at E3 (link to the video in the first post), and funnily enough Microsoft had to keep on emphasing that it was genuine in-game footage and not something else. True, you're going to need a beefy rig to get it to look this good but from what I saw it makes Il-2's graphics look like they're made with crayon.
  21. Bear in mind that the vast majority of these racers are heavily modified from the original aircraft - it's not just a new coat of paint!
  22. What gets me is that the Trumpeter management then say 'This is subject that is very, very well-known by many people. Let's give it to the C Team to do, whilst the A Team concentrate on the 1:144 Fairy Fruitfly'.
