I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

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.
