This kit arrived today, it was flat packed so the box needed to be constructed, all contents are in excellent condition.

Nice catch, von Fokkerbuilder! Where did you locate this one?
Cheers,

Hi Lance,
 I swapped an Alb. variant for this Fok. build.
A painless trade.

 ;)

Well, in the last couple of months I've picked up 2 Junkers J1, a Pfalz DIIIa, a 1/35 Vosper, and an ICM Model T ambulance. The ICM kit is at least to the molding standard of WNW.

Planning on doing Raymond Collishaw's bird. The bloke is a rather large hero of mine  ;)

I received a huge amount (and if I say huge, I mean huge!) of rotary engines of the different 1/48 types from Small Stuff and CSM Caudron G.IV Late Version.

Cheers,

Wikipedia says: A model is a simplified representation of reality.
So I create downscaled originals.

added a Hobbycraft Billy Bishop Nieuport 17, and.. wait for it... a WNW Biff recently. the path to the Biff was interesting. i had a Fine Molds 1/72 Millennium Falcon. decided to get out of the Star Wars genre. eBay'd it. hit it off with the guy who bought it. he has a Biff he won't build and is selling it to me at a very good price. this is epic because the Biff is one of my all time favs of any period. ideally i'd like to build at least 3 if they don't sell out too quick. Keith Park, with the WNW kit markings, Atkey's 2 against 20 bird and McKeever. i'm not Canadian but i very much have a thing for Canadian aces.

Add me to the fan club.
I have huge respect for our Canadian brethren, passed and present.
