    Is WNW nearing the end of its run?

    I'm building at least 10 a year. Most go on the FB pages. Must post harder.....

    Glucosamine and Chondroitin?

    The placebo effect is a fascinating thing. worth being aware also of the healthy user effect, in clinical trials. The sort of people who take supplements and other remedies are the sorts of people who tend to listen to their medic, and take the statin and watch their weight etc, plus they can afford the supplements evidenced by the fact they buy them. The combined effect of all this is that the supplements appear to have a benefit in self reported outcomes like mobility, achiness etc when there is no pharmacological benefit whatsoever, except for curing heavy wallet syndrome.
  3. One result I do like, is when you take a pic of the finished build and it looks believably real, especially in black and white. I do like to do a build from a photograph when I can, but the finish is the art isn't it? Has to be a personal thing. Why do people weather space ships though??

    Priming WNW and other kits..?

    Yes you can get away without priming them. I generally mist on a fine coat of the Tamiya I'm using thinned with lacquer thinners then spray over that. If black basing I use alclad black or stynylrez primer, on the main airframe. For metal parts I prime with alclad black. if you can see flow in the plastic parts, as you do occasionally, prime it well as it shows through.

    I order from CSM direct and have never had any problems at all. OMG they're in Latvia. That's next to Syria, or maybe Kazakhstan..... Honestly! They are a well established company.

    Display Bases??

    These guys were at Telford last year. Plain well made ridiculously cheap for the money. http://displaybases.co.uk/ then I just glue on a modelscene grassmat or a weedy meadow from: https://www.themodeltreeshop.co.uk/rough-meadow-mat-p317.html they just need cutting to size and sticking down with PVA.
  12. Thanks a lot fellas. Photo posting seems much more fiddly.
  13. Here's my DFW. The scheme is an unidentified DFW, in Jack Herris's book. I used a copper state DFW crew, gaspatch MGs and turnbuckles, Bobs buckles and some aviattic linen patches on her. Paints are all drooling bulldog lacquers.
