    Great news, Microprose was a huge chunk of my '20's! B-17, the Grand Prix series, X-COM, 1942: The Pacific Air War, Falcon, Knights of the Sky...

    Jeez, we used to have a 'pop van' round my way in the '70's and early '80's when I was a kid selling these - he'd turn up once a week and sell them, and you'd hand back your empty bottles.

    Bump....   sorry.... couldn’t resist!
     
    A bit closer to topic:  My wife emptied a closet full of Christmas stuff, and offered it up to my stash.  To my dismay, my straggling stash, when consolidated, filled the entire standard size closet with more left outside.  I only have about 4 WNW birds, but I find it really difficult to imagine buying more until I put a big dent in my stash.

    To be honest this whole thread now just drifts aimlessly...now no-one knows what it was originally about as the OP keeps editing the title and original post, and it just keeps getting bumped for no real reason other than to keep it going.
     
    It's like that episode of Friends where they keep throwing a ball to each other, but because it's been going on so long no-one knows why they're still doing it.

    Not saying that Barker wasn't a great pilot, but I wouldn't put too much stock in what Billy Bishop said - the man had, shall we say, an interesting relationship with the truth...

    I've found that there are three rules when it comes to Britmodeller...
     
    - If it's not 1/72, it's not real modelling
    - Airfix make the best kits ever bar none
    - The 'Inner Circle' (i.e. the opinionated clique) must never be questioned or doubted
     
    Which is why I no longer frequent the place.

    I used to like Britmodeller but it is SO heavily biased towards toys, sorry, towards 1/72 scale, that I find it quite frustrating at times. There are however some very knowledgeable (and sometimes opinionated) aviation experts there. Home is where the heart is! ❤️

    Sure, there are a few trucks etc. in 1/32 that Fujimi make - but the fact remains that Airfix would sell a hell of a lot more of their car kits if they made them in 1/24 as opposed to 1/32. The simple fact is that there are more car modellers looking for 1/24 car kits than there are LSP modellers looking for a 1/32 car to pose with an aircraft model.

    Indeed - and that's a scale used for cars by...absolutely no-one else. It's 1/24 for everything except F1 cars (which are 1/20).

    But WNW never said they wouldn't do a Camel or Dr.I, though - all they ever said was that they had no plans to do so but wouldn't rule it out in future. That got interpreted by certain parties to be 'WNW will never do a Camel or Dr.I'. They are now saying that they will (eventually) kit all the significant aircraft of WWI, it's just a question of time.
     
    Contrast with their response when asked if they will do other WWII aircraft after the Lanc - they have said 'never again' in that case.

    All French aircraft were designated with Roman Numerals, the use of Latin numbers is due to the British (and later the Americans) using them in their documentation, which has been retained by English-language authors ever since. If you want to be strictly accurate, then using Roman Numerals is correct.
