Hi again

Household dirt doesn't count, does it? We've got to get our priorities right...

All the best

Take a look at the fourth photo in this Aeroscale article about the new Lancaster. Note the stack of books under the window.

Hi Russ

Wow! You've got eagle-eyes! I hadn't noticed that... Very intriguing...

All the best

Rowan, not sure if you remember, but you paid me the almost exact same compliment when you did the review on Eduard’s brand new 1/32 Bf 109 several years ago when it was released, when I noted there was a wing flap detached and missing in your sprue shots of the kit (I knew it was missing because mine was also missing, but Eduard was good enough to get the part to me). But I hate to admit it, my wife would disagree with you as I don’t seem to have the same "detail affinity" in noticing “household dirt” and my “advancing age excuse” doesn’t seem to be an excuse that matters much with her, since I seem to notice these little details in my modeling...

On a side note, I can’t make out the title of the middle book in the stack, but I’d love to know what it is...maybe we’ll find out in "future releases"!?! One can hope!
VR, Russ

Awesome, though I wish they would bring out more French aircraft. That sector is seriously under-represented in state-of-the-art kits.



As well as Italian, Belgian and Russian aircraft. Although I spied a copy of "Italian Aces of WWI" and "French Aircraft of the First World War" in a photo of Bryan Wall's desk (the WNW Halberstadt designer)! So there might be some hope!
