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

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.

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,

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.

Steve,
    Elm City Hobbies in N.B. have shipped me paints through Canada Post and are the only supplier that does in my experience. I can't even convince the supplier I buy at in Edmonton to Land Courier paints to me....... My experience is limited however I think flammable liquids are generally a "no-no".
Cheers,
Lance

Thanks Lance. Had a funny feeling that was the case. I would like to pick up some of these new brands but no locals have them.

I received two sets of the Barracuda Studio Sopwith Camel wicker seats and cushions to suit the Wingnuts Camel kits, I also received the SWS 1:32 scale Horten Ho229 which was on special at BNA Model World.
