    Interesting take on hobbies

    I think that the essence of the article is that you should enjoy your hobby at your own pace, whatever pace that is. Living up to someone else's standards is a gateway to disappointment. I blame marketing. Buy these shoes and you too can be Ussain Bolt. You are not satisfying the critics? Buy better shoes! Buy these weathering products and you too can make filthy-looking derelicte wrecks. You are not satisfying the critics? Buy more, make it even filthier and more wrecked! Before you know it you start asking yourself "why does my hobby not match reality?". That just creates a void, ready to be filled with bad feelings. Match your hobby to reality and you will be happy. Build your model to your own standards. Radu

    Who will I see in Telford this year?

    You can find me at the RB Productions stand. :-) Radu
  3. Thanks for the reply. I will keep an eye on that for my own messages. :-) Can the "public" status be reversed after posting? Radu

    What a beauty! Well done! Radu
  5. I was reading the latest posts on the forum using the "unread content" function and I came across what seems to be a private message from Troy Molitor to Alaninaustria. Usually when a post is listed on the "unread content" list, it also mentions the sub-forum, such as "LSP Discussion" or "General Discussion", but in the case of this message, there was no sub-forum listed. I do not think this was meant to be public. There is nothing embarrassing in this message, but I am not sure it was meant to show up in a public list. Radu
  6. The canopy was designed for Hasegawa. I never tried it on the Cyberhobby kit. Radu

    The often-repeated "mantra" is that "WNW refuse to do French aircraft". They DID one French aircraft. You do the math! Radu

    That is not true. WNW issued a Salmson, which IS French. They will possibly do other French aircraft when they get to it. Radu

    There was a lot of research done for the movie, including a very detailed full-scale replica and plenty of CGI. If I had a whole Lancaster in CAD, I would turn that into a model too. This just makes sense to me. Radu

    Wingnut wings is developing three new kits

    So, they were going to announce three models. Two are Lancasters. What is the third model? Radu

    Whether he did or not, you knew who he was! Why? Because this "Australian" is "connected" with the story. That makes it an "Australian connection". ;-) Radu

    An Albatros DIII would be quite easy for them to make. There is a certain amount of "research overlap" with their existing Albatros DV. There are so many cool colour schemes for the III! Radu

    So, wingnut wings at Telford...

    In my own personal experience, when manufacturers from outside the UK sell directly from their own stand in Telford, they match relatively closely the prices of the same products sold by their UK-based retailers. They do that so that the retailers do not feel "cheated" when customers come to the stand and say: "You are gouging me! The manufacturer sells it for 20% less right over there, I will buy from their stand". Radu
