    vince14 got a reaction from Gazzas in New HKM 1/32 model coming soon...   
    Right, I'm calling it now - it's going to be the WNW HP 0/400...

    Sadly, there are plently that are just kit assemblers - if you can't shake the box and a perfect model falls out, they'll claim it's unbuildable.

    The 1/12 Lancia Delta HF is good news - currently if you want one of those, you're looking at shelling out over £650 for the MFH kit.

    If you really want it, and you have the disposable income, why not?

    vince14 got a reaction from CANicoll in positive WNW info ?   
    Agree, could well be the case. I think PJ wants WNW to die off as quietly as possible.

    I know people are going to speculate that this is the WNW kit, but I very much doubt it is. The CAD looks different to the WNW test models we've seen, so it looks like 100% Meng.

    It was all down to PJ - he funded it, he got to choose the subjects and he loves German two- and multi-seaters. Unfortunately that led the company down a path where expenditure was far outstripping income. Add in the desire for perfection - the Lanc was in develoment for the best part of a decade and still didn't get released! - and you end up where we are now.

    It certainly wasn't. There are recorded cases of pilots shooting at men in parachutes from all sides of the conflict.

    I guess that without an 'amateurish permanently outdoor pseudo museum' willing to step in, that poor Hunter would now be reduced to tins of beans.

    Dude, the UK has wonderful museums dotted all over the country, many of them free of charge or with a nominal fee. We don't lack for museums of all sorts, from ancient history to modern day, with aviation museums in particular well served. 
     
    As has been said, volunteers play an enormous part in this, contributing both time & money. Sure, the UK weather doesn't help, and there's not a great deal of money to be made in the museum game, in fact none whatsoever. So instead of casually insulting those people who make the effort for our benefit, perhaps you should put your hand in your pocket and also offer your time, like so many others do.
