    They were compared to what WNW kits are selling for on Ebay right now!

    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.

    There was an awful lot going on in Longbridge at the time, that car is an example
     
    It was a successful car in India, and Tata were very proud of it - understandably as it was a cause of pride over there. It was a disaster for the UK due to the level of equipment and the quality of the build. MG Rover knew it and told Tata - who didn't want to hear. The biggest problems in that project were cultural rather than engineering. Most of them seem to have become MG-R manager's wives cars, not that there very many in the first place
     
    If you want to seriously scratch your head, try and work out why we fitted Rouch V8 engines into a FWD car meaning a total redesign of the chassis to RWD. Or bought the Qvake Mangusta to convert into the SV
     
    There was a lot money going into vanity projects when what was really needed was a replacement for the 25 and 45.

    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.

    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.

    For good access to aviation-related locations, you're primarily looking at the East Midlands, Lincolnshire, Norfolk or Suffolk - essentially anywhere that's South of Lincoln, East of Leicester and North of London.
     

     
    The pins are for a few aviation museums, but it's by no means comprehensive (Duxford is in Cambridgeshire, Newark Air Museum is in Nottinghamshire etc. and they're both missing off this map). These places can be cheaper to live in than London (although Cambridge is expensive), but they're also a lot more - shall we say - rural than the rest of the country.

    just think, if the boundless energy applied to the ongoing complaints about the ongoing circular discussion of what may or may not be the future of WingNut Wings were applied to *actually* building the things - we’d have double the surge of really wonderful builds to follow!
