    Nice model, is it wood?...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks Gunny. Feels like wood. I really wanted the Fokker 1 triplane but it went for too much.

    That's one of the Desktop Models range made from solid Philippine Mahogany, very nice and not cheap either. Is it 1:72 scale Todd?

    Hi, Ned. Yes, 1:72 scale. Light but a nice size. How much do these usually go for? That might explain why the Fokker 1 went for more.

    They (1:72 scale bombers) generally retail at around $125-$150+ these days, they used to be closer to $200-$250+ a couple of years ago for a fairly standard one, but a lot more folks jumped on the bandwagon.

    They usually offer a service to paint 'em up as any aircraft you like, your Dad's, Grandad's ship, whatever. These are more money, as are one's signed by surviving members of well known crews or aces, there's quite a few signed models of the 'Enola Gay' knocking around for instance, and now they're all dead the price has started going up! Because they are made in the Philippines, labour's cheap, and they don't cost a lot to produce, but when they get Stateside the retail profit is huge.

    Thanks, Ned. Damn, if I have known that I could have gotten quite a few for $200 total. I had no idea!
