Beautiful work Lance!  It's nice to see in other clothing than the usual too. So sad to lose one's life right at the end, how tragic.

My impression with Tamiya and other Japanese manufacturers is that they have little interest in WWI in general, so seeing something from them in that regard is not something I'll hold my breath for.

   Thanks WD, and I agree, I won't be holding my breath for the appearance of a Tamiya WWI Kit which is a shame really. Their quality of engineering and detail is as good or better then the best in the business and would provide for healthy competition in the market. It's all about what will sell I'm afraid and our "wood and wire" genre is not a real leader in that regard as we know!
Cheers,
Lance

Your Corsair looks wonderful, Lance -

I've built this kit in the past and agree the standard of kit engineering is second to none - I would also say that Tamiya going into a WW1 subject is extremely unlikely.
