I agree that the Tamiya 1/32 kits are very very good, but I do not agree that they are the equal of WNW in any regard except for the engineering and fit of the kits. In that respect, Tamiya have always been the best, and WNW have had Tamiya as an example to meet and match, which WNW now do without any doubt. However, in terms of surface detail execution, accuracy and research WNW are way ahead of Tamiya. As an example - rib tape. The WNW rib tape on all their aircraft is exquisitely done and very very well researched and accurate to type. By comparison, Tamiya rib tape [for instance their Mk IXc , Mk VIII Spitfire, F4U etc] have very heavy and clumsy rib tape on the rudder, which to me looks awful when compared to a real aircraft. There are research issues with detail and shape too - for instance on Tamiya's new 1/48th Spitfire Mk1a [a forerunner for a 1/32 kit?] they have made very odd and incorrect hot air extraction ducts under the wings, - they are asymmetrical in the kit which is wrong, etc etc.
More than that WNW's research and sensational effort to produce a stressed skin effect with their forthcoming Lancs will I have no doubt make all other 1/32 kits from all other manufacturers including Tamiya look like yesterdays efforts, in the same way that tooling for recessed panel lines did to kits with raised panel lines. WNW have an unrivalled commitment to historically accurate and truly sensational tooling and models that have absolutely no equal - including Tamiya in my opinion.
