  1. I've never really understood why the modelling world locked in on scales that were 'Imperial' in origin anyway? 1/144 = 1 inch to 12 feet 1/72 = 1 inch to 6 Feet 1/48 = 1 inch to 4 feet. 1/32 is logical, it is just fractional progression. 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32. Maybe 1/72 and 1/144 should be replaced with 1/64 and 1/128? As for a 1/35 Bf109 and Stuka, why the heck not?
  2. Plenty of them available in the UK, and for quite reasonable prices. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tamiya-1-32-scale-WW2-British-RAF-SPITFIRE-MK-1XC/303074182253?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225113%26meid%3De7773f820bc6462f89fb6960e6fccd1a%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D303074182253%26itm%3D303074182253%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26brand%3DTamiya&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Aae3f3176-34a4-11eb-947e-ced7cf07dbc2|parentrq%3A23b3adcc1760a69fe1a309d3ffdf3da4|iid%3A1
  3. Is buying more kits than you can build actually a bad thing? I thought so when I returned to the hobby a few years back, but now I get almost as much satisfaction from the tracking down and buying process as I do from making them, which still I do, albeit very slowly. I am probably not alone in building up a war chest of WNW kits before their demise, the price point that I was looking for was 20-25% off of the recommended price. I now have about twenty of them and some, if you take the prices being paid on Ebay as a yardstick, are being bought for prices over three times what I purchased th
  4. 10/09/2020 is September in European date format.
  5. Could it be that MNM are just emulating what WNW did with their Manfred Von Richtofen Albatros D V a couple of years back. Throw a cheap as chips figure into the box, call it a special edition, add 10% -20% to the cost, then sit back and count the cash as they fly off the shelves? I can't remember seeing it elsewhere in the thread, but anyone who owns a WNW Manfred V R special edition already has a set of decals for a DR1. See page 20 of the D V instruction booklet, Bonus Scheme 2, a red, sky blue and stripey green number.
  6. Seeing as the demise of WNW turned the LSP world upside down, I suggest that the phoenix fluttering out of China be referred to as MNM, or Meng Nut Mings. I'll get my coat.
  7. Is it just me, or does this release not smell a bit like a stop gap to cover for the late arrival of the Lancaster and Triplane? Announce something, anything!
  8. The Imperial War Museum has been dramatically dumbed down and caters for hordes of disinterested schoolchildren who just want to touch things. The RAF Museum at Hendon was going the same way the last time that I went there. Duxford wins every time, the contents of the hangars are are always changing as they store, service, and refurbish old warbirds. For a more limited, but intimate, aircraft experience, try the de Havilland Aircraft Museum, it has none of the disadvantages of the other two London museums, plus three Mosquitoes, including the prototype, and is housed in the same site that
