  1. I have a hard time understanding why William Barker VC is never mentioned in the same breath as Werner Voss. I think it has to do with Canadians in general and our inferiority complex. We just have never been very good at listing our accomplishments in battle and our heroes have suffered as a result Voss fought 8 very accomplished British pilots and was eventually killed after putting up a heroic struggle. Barker took on anywhere from 15-60 front line German pilots in plain view of the troops below in his final sortie and shot down 4 even though horribly wounded. He crash landed
  2. Thank you everyone for the replies. I got a Tamiya set because part of the Radu order was not in stock. I appreciate the responses to my inquiry Tim
  3. Hello: Starting my first resin kit in a few weeks and I would like to get a recommendation on a razor saw. I used an Exacto years ago and found it to be extremely difficult to cut regular plastic (so much so that I bent the mount when trying to put pressure on the plastic piece) The Zona 35-050 Ultra Thin Razor Saw, 52 TPI.008-Inch Kerf, Blade Length 4-1/2-Inch, Cut Depth 7/16-Inch looks intriguing but I defer to those that use the tools frequently Thank You Tim
  4. Kevin: Re Model Cellar I already have the Boelcke and Billy Bishop. They are very nice and I am planning on using the Boelcke with the E1 WNW. Right now I am looking more towards mechanics and fitters. I am also searching for a WW1 vintage trailer in 1/32 which I could strap a Junkers D.1 (wingless) onto. The lead time from aviattic and hgw is very frustrating ( I'm 65 and just waiting for the eyesight and the steady hands to start failing)so I am trying to find sub-distributors in the US or Canada that have some good access to airfield supplies for dioramas. Thank you all for respo
  5. Beautiful Andy. Getting ready to start on mine next week Dryden
  6. Timeframe is a little off but how about a Lavasseur PL4 customized to PL8. Its a little alarming to me that the Oiseau Blanc doesn't appear to be made by anyone.
  7. Bob: Fantastic news I will contact him when he returns Readoak has some gorgeous castings but nothing specific for WW1...they do have a stunning Russian woman pilot WW2 vintage that would make it worthwhile to build a vintage fighter model to display with her. I am not used to getting this much help this quickly from forums....think I'm going to love it here. Thank you all Dryden
  8. Thank you both. I will try to contact Dave again. Unfortunately I don't use face book but its probably worth it to get access. I would love to see WNW get the rights to distribute these...they are stunning
  9. I am in the US and there seems to be a general dearth of resin figures having anything to do with WW1 in 1/32 scale. There was a gorgeous series of figures by Resin Wings/ David Allen Wings cockpit figures (maybe a different name now) but I cannot find any information and emails to David directly went unanswered CSM has a few and I believe Aviattic and I was able to find a couple of good deals on Alibaba but I would say that all of the vendors combined only show about 10 different characters with the exception of Resin Wings. Virtually none made outside of Europe which means that the frei
