It's amazing to me that there is a list for WWI airplane modeling. Not WWII, not modern, but those fabulous machines created between 1914 and 1918. Even I cannot figure out why it has to be WWI. Anyway, I am buying and building every 1:72 kit I can find. I find it odd that there are so many kits of the lesser known types of aircraft, and almost none of the more famous ones like the SE5a. Two people on this list were kind enough to supply me with an SE5a and Sopwith Tripe, the old Revell kits I built as a kid long ago. Grzegorz, the check is in the mail! Neil Crawford, your LVG is on the way! I'm building a (MAC) Roland DVIa at the moment. It has been a real pain, but that's my fault. I think the kit is very good, one of the best I've built so far.

Like they say in the movie "Field of Dreams", "If you build it, they will come." And come they did! Your fellow list members are what make this list and the companion website what it is. Without them I'd just be some guy who likes WWI models, talking to himself on the internet. > Anyway, I am buying and building every 1:72 kit I can find.

Neil Crawford, your LVG is on the way! Actually, be thankful you've entered this genre when you have. This is truely the golden age of WWI modeling. Seven years ago when this list started there really was slim pickings. For most subjects you were relegated to vacuform, and a lot of those were male molded! With Toko, Roden, Eduard, Hit Kit, etc. we've come a long way....baby. > I'm building a (MAC) Roland DVIa at the moment. It has been a real pain, > but that's my fault.

You'll be gratified to know that Roden will be bringing out some 1/72 Se5a's soon, in the major variants (French affecionados please note that these are released before any accurate SPADs and Nieuports :-p). However, they don't seem to be doing an original Se5 which is a great shame. I just bought a Revell 1/72 Se5a at a recent swapmeet and look forward to buildng it soon.

It's the nature of men to be proud of where they belong too, be it a small town, a nation, a country, a commonwealth of nations, THE WORLD. In the (quite a few) years that I've been on this List I've learned to appreciate the company of people of different belongings (with one or two exceptions, from people who didn't want to accept that all men are created equal, hence their love for what they consider as theirs). Dave Fletcher is a Gentleman and a friend (and again he showed it) and I'm sure he never meant to insult anyone and I'm sure my opinion will be corroborated by all the people on this list that have been in here long enough to get to know us and get aquainted with the List's idiosincracies. Though from reading your string of posts I can understand your reaction to Dave's words, I sincerely think that you overreacted (and you're of course free to disagree, but that's my personal opinion) in a manner which, in a classic excalation way, lead to an also overreacted response by Larry. I firmly believe that excalation leads nowhere and I also think that before we shoot we really should try to see who's on the other side of the barrel. Just my 2 cents worth of thinking. Pedro P.S.

Go ahead and ask away. While it's awesome that RPM has just released correct scale FT-17s, I don't think you want to start with one of those.

Her goal in all of this was to assess the new BM kit. In the course of participating in that exercise, I got interested in the discrepancies betweeen the sets of plans that I had, most of which represented British DH4s. These plans came from the following (too many!) sources: FMP's DH AC Vol.1 Windsock Datafile Special MAP Plan Pack Crowood's AIRCO Air Britain's DH4-9 File Wylam's Scale Aircraft Drawings/Air Ministry's Technical notes/Harleyford's Bomber AC/Profile 26 Comparing these drawings, one set stood out as very different; Ian Stair's in the DF Special. Measuring from the rudder, the wing placement on the Stair drawings were 19 inches further aft than anyone else showed. Comparing the drawings to photographs convinced me that this is an error, and would result in an atypical stance and look to any model based on these plans. I'm not sure that Karen ever agreed with me on this, and she spent a fair amount of time looking at plans, too. I'd love your opinion; pull together your DH4 plans and let's hear the conclusions YOU draw. But the Datafile is still the best source of detail photos.
