  1. In a way: the manufacturing and restoring side was shut down, along with several job losses, while retaining a rump staff to maintain and operate the existing fleet. Who knows what delights are in shipping containers with an uncertain future. This recent Vanity Fair article can shed some light on things: https://www.vanityfair.com/style/2021/01/peter-jackson-and-the-airplane-thief
  2. As an aside, for anyone who’s interested TVAL’s 1/1 display slots for the show are: TVAL Scenario 1: WWI Fighter Combat Fokker Triplane, Fokker DVII, Sopwith Camel, Pup and Snipe TVAL Scenario 2 Bomber across the Lines! Two Fokker DVII intercept a DH4 Bomber TVAL Scenario 3 Reconnaissance over the Trenches Bristol F2B, BE2c, BE2f, DH4, RE8 & BE12 TVAL Scenario 4: 1918 Fokker DVIII, Fokker DVII, Bristol F2B, Sopwith Camel & Snipe The F.2B and BE.2f are originals, they have one each replica and original Camel so I’m not sure which is flying. I’
  3. My Dad got me the 1998 Hasegawa catalogue when I was 10 or 11 and the 1/72 J7W kits really grabbed my attention (I never got either). To see the type getting this treatment in 1/32 is very exciting!
  4. I'm not sure I made it clear but I'll beat the show on Saturday, eager to chat with the WNW stall attendants and photograph what's there. I'll be making a point to post about it and the relevant photos here and at other forums before the actual airshow photos.
  5. I'll gather what info I can and post here when I get back
  6. Hi all, This weekend is the first of New Zealand's two big airshows this year, Wings Over Wairarapa. The host airfield is home to The Vintage Aviator Limited's (Sir Peter Jackson) flying WW1 fleet. A few minutes ago this popped up on TVAL's Facebook page: I'm at the show on Saturday so I'll be taking photos and asking questions, fingers crossed they can shed some light on the future...or at least some hints!
  7. Such a gorgeous finish, and the engine looks great too!
  8. Beautiful. Incredible craftsmanship, and I'm grateful for being able to see some in-progress images. Another speechless fan here.-
  9. Lovely work! It's been great to see more models of NZ3220 popping up since John's death. Conservation of the real '20 is coming along beautifully and a couple of weeks ago reunited the wing and fuselage (Dave McDonald photos): I can't wait to see her, the Tiger Moth and Mosquito all together in the OAHC at Easter!
  10. I love the squiggle camo, it looks fantastic! I didn't expect a Reichenberg to last so long that it became that weathered.
  11. That is so cool! I've only built one working parts kit, the Revell 1/72 TFX / F-111, and that was a lot of fun and immensely satisfying. This looks like it was a lot of fun and is beautiful. Top job!
  12. I love the finish you've achieved. What an utterly beautiful bird! Bravo!!
  13. I haven't commented here Ant but I've been watching and thoroughly enjoying this undertaking. This will be a spectacular model!!
  14. As a long-time G.50 fan (and someone who loves your He100 build) I'm following this with great interest! I love your work on the cockpit.
