Just wish I had a deep pocket, a whole house division and a full year to buy & build such a beast of a kit. It looks just nothing short of amazing

If you had a choice between HKM or WNW, which would you choose and why?
Julian Shawyer said on May 31, 2019
I think modellers would wait until WNW released their Lancaster before making a decision. It could be because of price, or one was judged to be a better model.

The H-K Dam Buster is out now. I have a review copy and it is very nice. From using Mark Postlethwaite’s definitive book on the Lancaster, it is quite accurate. It’s also available now and considerably less expensive than the WNW kit will be. YMMV.

Thanks for the input guys. Although I am very far from being able to tackle something of this magnitude currently, I would not hesitate to pull the trigger on getting one or the other depending upon reviews.

WNW simply because of their replication of the stressed skin. That alone makes the decision easy for me even if it is harder on the wallet. Something that scale and size would look too “perfect” without it. I have seen someone on the internet show how to do this quilted look but Wingnut just makes it easy for you! (I do hope it doesn’t drop at the same time as HPH’s B-52 as I have to pay the back half of that yet and money’s already tight as I just replaced the diff in my Midget!)

Are you going to do this, Julian?
As much as this model appeals to me, I don’t think so.
I’ve still not completed a model in over two years now.
As much as I would like to build this kit, I honestly don’t think I would find time to complete it.
Hopefully, if I retire next year, I will have more spare time to spend on my hobby.
That’s too bad. But I get it. It’s been 15 months for me since my last model. Maybe this summer I’ll be able to start on something.
I just think you’d doing an incredible job on it.
Thank you David, you’re too kind. I’ll take this opportunity to apologise for my failing to start my entry in your Battle of Kasserine Pass Build Group. Please accept my sincere apologies.

Thank you Louis.

That looks like a real challenge to build. Not to mention challenging to find space to keep a completed one! But the result would be awesome!
It will certainly be a large model Jeff.

Funny for WNW to produce a WWII aircraft.
