    Looks like my garage right now! Moving the stash was a pain. And now my designated model storage space is full and I have about 12 large boxes to go.  Stash reduction sale part 3 coming up...

    I think it's only a matter time and or economics before things start to resurface, I have not dealt with Chinese directly but some companies we do work for have had no end of problems, Ebay and Alibaba are a pain.
    One thing the cost of manufacturing is going up in China 5 years ago we could not get near them on price now the casting prices are about the same but factor in transport and import duties we are "in the pound seats" also for some reason their lead times are getting longer.
     
    A bit of a bugger as my first Wingnuts kit was going to be the Lanc !!

    You know what really makes this build so awesome, it is the colours of the streaking that when viewed from a distance it gives that " silver grey" look as we have read from contempory combat reports so often. This is the ONLY model I have ever seen that replicates this. Simply outstanding. Regards, Pete in RI

    Wing warping?? I thought the Dr1 had ailerons? maybe I was too trusting of the box art.

    Exquisite build sir!
     
    Every time I see one of these I can't help but think of the Saturday morning cartoon, "Stop that Pigeon" with Dastardly, Muttley and Their Flying Machines!

    Yep, you are right Graham, not a peep on the regular news channels over here about the Uk elections I am embarassed to say, except for the BBC world news. That's the only place one can find out what's happening on the planet. I find myself turning to Amazon Prime and Netflix more often now, at least they have good documentaries. We are starting the research to ditch cable tv, it's just not worth it anymore. Regards, Pete in RI. ( originally from gods own country, Yorkshire)

    Who needs the opinion of a renowned worldwide expert & modeller, who has written innumerable books on the subject, and may be writing another on exactly this subject, who has the kit in his hands and is building it? 
     
    Just hop over to the WWI aircraft forum. They know so much more than over there. "1970's flash", how did Ray miss that? All that horrible flash on the ailerons? The numerous mold seams? The incredibly wonky wings? The too wide axle wing? The overall kit so poor as to encourage CSM to come to market with their own new tool Fokker Triplane kit?
     
    Ray will never live this down.

    I noticed my wife has just opened a new Ebay account. Funny thing is, I found her checking out my stash of WNW's earlier.

    Speaking of stashes from a different perspective, a bit of thread drift perhaps...
    I Just calculated that if I move out all the suits and out of fashion shirts that I will never again use (retirement and no go anywhere Covid-19) I gain 4.5 linear feet By 7 feet high of closet space.  That results in space for 25 to 30 models.  Opportunity abounds for moving kits back in country.

    I keep large sections of my stash in Japan (HLJ), the US (Sprue Brothers), and England (Hannants). BNA here in Australia appears to have the rest.

    100% of my stash is here. I don't always know exactly where specific kits are, but they're here,... somewhere. My policy is, put them wherever there's a space, then find them later; sort of a hide and seek game, really.
