  1. But what I said was entirely true, wasn't it? If the numbskull who chose 1:35th had stuck with the already fully established scale of 1:32, EVERYTHING would have been completely compatible with EVERYTHING else. I stand by my comment. Stupidest decision in modelmaking history, bar none. In my humble opinion......
  2. Your membership card of the Wiltshire Scale Modellers is hanging by a thread!!!
  3. Just don't go there.... stupid piffling little scale! God rot the socks of the plonker who came up with that nonsense....
  4. I disagree. Quality has its price. You could argue that the prices were not high enough if the business failed for profitability reasons, although there is likely a lot more to it than that. But price was never an issue with me, bang per buck value was extraordinairy! However, subject matter, that I would challenge on numerous counts!! But this is all irrelevant now. Meng will recoup their out of pocket costs with the Dr1, and some profit I hope. But that will be it. This is a one-off, probably.
  5. Dave Bruce Crosby is doing another Mistel job with this kit...
  6. I just back-ordered one from Hannants. Do you know what? I am going to wait and see what is in the box when it arrives....
  7. It is a rotary engine, so if the prop is going round, the cylinders should be a blur... I bet the artist just traced over a CAD render, and not knowing much about WW1 aero engines, painted what was on the render. He knew enough to blur the prop, but then my 5 year old granddaughter knows about aeroplane propellers..... Me, an influence?! Maybe, just a little.....
  8. The sprues are identical.... Pics of both now easily found on the interweb for direct comparison. Identical....
  9. If a late mark Spitfire did it for them, I'd expect them to do another, different, late mark Spitfire. Or Seafire. Hopefully....

  11. Wot, mould making that cleverly covers a multitude of variations, but which requires yer actual model making skills to be applied in skimming off the ones you don't need for your particular model? Steady on there... That means praising the designers. What would we have to moan about then? It will never catch on, I tell you.
  12. If you want Copper State to make more WW1 aircraft, go buy a Nieuport or two!! Now!! There are several to choose from, they are not 'boring' PC10 coloured machines, they are beautifully designed and manufactured kits, and jeez, one even has rockets!! Quality is barely a hairsbreadth shy of the WNW series, and right now, they are our best bet for a continuing stream of top quality WW1 aircraft models. Meng I reckon is a flash in the pan, they are just recouping their out-of-pocket expenses on the tooling they have made for a now expired client. What are you waiting for? Go click that button!! https://www.copperstatemodels.com/page/product_info/270/WzIsIltdIl0%3D Tim PS no commercial affiliation with CSM, just a very happy customer!
  13. Excuse me, do I remember you from, Norwich, I think? I am afraid I have never been to Norwich. Do you know, neither have I! It must have been two other fellows, then!
