Although I have three Gene Hooker vacuforms to build, I think I'll get one of these too.

You get a pass if it's an airliner due to physical size.

A question for the masses on materials used by Welsh Models.

I see some kits still use white metal for the props and Landing gear. While others use resin.

So why still use white metal? Resin would appear to be the better material.

I hate white metal.

White metal is stronger than resin.

White metal can be reused if the moulding doesn't work out, thereby saving material costs for the moulder.

White metal carries better detail than resin does, unless you utilise pressure resin moulding techniques.

It also weighs more (is more dense) than resin, so can be used to ballast the front of tricycle undercarriage aircraft, so they're not tail-sitters.

Moulding the parts in white metal is more efficient than adding weights, especially if there's a lot of glazing in the nose.

Speaking of the P-8 Poseidon. This was posted on the Welsh Model's Facebook page today.

Here are a few of the images that Ray Seppala of Australia sent to us of his build of our Welshmodels 1:72nd scale Boeing P-8A Poseidon RAAF kit which he detailed incredibly well and has offered us a text with his alterations. 

" My 1/72 Welsh Models P-8A Poseidon is in the markings of A47-007 of 11SQN, RAAF. The build consisted of scratch building the weapons bay, weapons mounting points on the wings and pylons, many of the ESM and AMS lumps and antennas. I also added various vent blow in doors and the sonobuoy tubes. I reshaped a lot of the kit supplied parts as well. Finally I added AGM-84 Harpoons from a Hasegawa weapons set and Mk48 Torpedoes from a Hasegawa P-3C Orion, they looked close enough to me to replicate the Mk54s the P-8 carries. Decals were from a custom sheet DekLs created by upsizing their 1/200 sheet and it was painted in mainly SMS lacquers. It is a bit rough in some parts but I have spent enough time on it and am calling it finished. "

Yup, that's a really shabby build that you've knocked-off there Ray  ;)
