Most of > them look so odd it's amazing they flew, let alone fought. This is much more like it. I build (when I build) models of aircraft that appeal to me, not for any aesthetic reason, but purely to hold in my hands, look at, and wonder how the heck it managed to get into the air and in some cases actually fly. Also to wonder at the courage (?) of some of the early pilots, such as Sopwith himself who bought a Howard Wright 'plane, leapt into it, took off and crashed it. No lessons, just enthusiasm and a 'wonder what happens if' attitude. Which is a least part of the reason that I prefer the earlier aircraft of Britain and France, to share the sheer enjoyment that the aviators had of them flying and me trying to replicate those magnificent machines.

I quite happily concede that various Albatrosse are streamlined and easy on the eye - though that doesn't explain the widespread enthusiasm for the German uglies of WW2. Incidentally, I think that the reason that *I* (purely personally) prefer other aircraft over the streamlined ones is that I find "eye candy" types sweet but with no usefull dietary value and no obvious flavour Shane ********************************************************************** The information contained in this e-mail is confidential and is intended only for the use of the addressee(s).

Mark: Scale-Link figures are wonderful, but you'll go bankrupt trying to build a diorama with them. My suggestion is to buy some Dragon figures with desirable poses and get the Dremel after them, OR: There's hope that ICM may be coming out with some OT figures. I followed a link from an Internet Modeler review of an ICM figure kit, and, on the page where they announce upcoming releases, they list: "I World War British Infantry (1917-1918) 35301, and I World War German Assault Infantry (1918) 35291." There's no artwork, the listing simply says that the kits are being designed. What's the likelihood that we'll actually see these? I really like ICM figures, despite the Vaseline-like mold release they are covered with. Their Franco-Prussian war figures can be converted to WWI, but cheap, plastic, 1/35 on topic figures would be great!

They are both running in attack positions & have a complete load of equipment. Squadron had them a couple of years ago, I don't know if they are still available. You could make rubber molds of the gear & cast resin parts, then convert some DML or Tamiya figures pretty easily. Dave Calhoun - >>Does anyone market larger scale OT figures??

Apart from WWII gliders, for which I have an inexplicable interest, I build what I consider colorful aircraft with highly varied schemes. Sorry, but the British PC over CDL, and its WWII Allied counterpart, OD over neutral gray or the equivalent is BORING to do! And so, I rarely choose to do those a/c. For example, if and when I get around to a Camel, it'll be one of the experimental camo schemes or something similar.

Lots of models expected for the annual contest. We anticipate 800 or
more models to be entered.. Lots of vendors and a good time will be had
by all. Outside of the big city with good, lower priced, accomodations
available.

We expect to have a good showing of OT models entered but not enough to
scare anyone away..

We always have a great show.
