    Wingnut wings is developing three new kits

    McNamara won his VC flying a BE2c. Although he was flying a Martynside Elephant, before switching mid mission to a downed pilots BE2c, by landing next to him. He tried to take off in the Elephant, but crashed. The pair ran back to the BEc2, fixed the engine - under fire - then took off for home. All the while, McNamara was in severe pain from a leg wound. So, WNW could do an Elephant, a BE2c, or a boxed set of both?

    I'll have one of each.

    So, wingnut wings at Telford...

    From what I've seen of WNW, they don't sell at shows at a significant discount, rather only discounting stuff like damaged stock. They just don't have to, because we lap it all up, I suppose.

    Make the others jealous

    If you want the complete story of the Nieuport 28 - overwhelmingly in US service - this is it. It also covers post-war use. Schematics, colour diagrams, in-depth discussion of the merits of the aeroplane, even a chapter on building a replica from scratch, with colour photos. It's got more colour than most Schiffer titles, and is a good read, as well as being a great technical source of information. My most read books are J M Bruce's 1957 "British Aeroplanes 1914-18" and Thetford & Ridings 1946 "Aircraft of the Great War". I read them over & over.

    WNW Bristol Fighter sold out

    I no longer stress about WNW kits selling out, as it's obvious they are going to re-release them, either as dual kits or the mythical, much heralded "special editions".

    Looking at my main bookcase this evening, it struck me that I think my main interest is WWI aviation.... 20180924_214508 by dekenba1, on Flickr

    Loosing that “Loving feeling”.

    It's being repurposed. So I'll be moving into a log-cabin in the garden. Insulated, heated (it's Wales, after all) and with electrics. Should be fun!

    HpH Wyvern breaks through the clouds...

    Good grief. A 1/32 Wyvern? From HpH? So €200's or so? I would never, ever have expected anybody, resin or plastic, to kit this in 1/32. Will it sell enough? I don't know anybody excited about this one.

    HK Lancaster.

    "Lancaster Series". Holy crap. Will they sell enough of these giant, expensive kits to support an entire series of them? I know the B-25 did, but this is much bigger & pricier. I think just the one will do for me. Probably.

    Oh yes. I recently took a year or so off - built absolutely nothing, just read, very extensively, instead. Now I'm building a new modelling den.
