Gene ,

I wish you the best of luck on locating Toms Model Work's kit and I do hope you are able too . It is very very rare . I have one in the stash and I have been trying to find another one so I can have the D.VII and the D.VIII . I have heard though the Lone Star Models is releasing one but don't know when it has been saying it for years now . He announced it a few months back on Hyperscale .

I would like to see this one kitted in 32 scale even 48 scale .

Thanks for sharing the 3 video , just c     d myself and have to change my pants now . That sound of the engine is just wow ...wow ! And how she just glides through the air so gracefully ...hell with the kit I want a real one !

Our friends at Roden have reached out and asked the members of our Forum to suggest the colour schemes they should feature on their three forthcoming new 1/32 scale kits. This is a first in the model world and a huge opportunity for modellers to have a direct input into the marking options of new kits.

Roden are resuming production of 1/32 scale WW1 aircraft in part due to feedback from this Forum and an influential subject poll which directly resulted in Roden adding the Spad XIII to their 2021 schedule of an Avro 504K and Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter.

And the news just gets better with Vladimir of Roden saying they will produce two versions of the Spad XIII - an Early and Late version.

Inviting Forum members to suggest the colour schemes is a huge move in the hobby world. Copper State Models sought member input for supplementary schemes for their Nieuport XXIII RFC kit, and as a result added two more marking options to the forthcoming kit.

Roden are starting with a blank page and saying- tell us which schemes we should feature? I don't know of any other model hobby website group that has been asked for such involvement in new kit production so it's a huge acknowledgement of how the members of this Forum are now regarded in the hobby!

So let's have your suggestions folks. Roden will be monitoring the thread and we will be sending them regular updates too.

Our hobby just keeps getting better and better every day.

Well you can get it in the USA from Squadron for 89.99 without bust or 139.99 with it - apparently $2 off MSRP!

Amazing to see a kit from HK at $39 being sold for more than double here sheesh....

Badly want a 1/32 of this Pfalz now - probably unlikely lol....

That would be a treat. I now have to search for Sandy's thread  ... and then locate a Tom's Modelworks kit! Where did you get yours, Sandy?

Thanks Bertl for all the links. Made my day.
