Import tariffs or not,  it's way more enticing than Trumpy Bear.

It appears on the actual Meng web page.  No price or release? 

 

May I now refer back to a possible prediction made earlier?

"All I will say is that we will need to get used to more of this rhetoric from the media.  I continue to brush it off until the point that protesters start picketing model shows."  

 

     Maybe Meng thinks it'll be like IHOP's tv Ad from several months ago. They called themselves International House of Burgers  What an Ad. It got my attention and my Wife's interest.  So, It worked!

So, maybe a Dio with an IHOP Building instead of the Church?

Something of interest on the same lines as the current topic.

  A new model from MENG.  It's for Chrismas. 

http://www.meng-model.com/new.php?id=823

"This MENG holiday product, U.S. Main Battle Tank M1A2 SEP Abrams TUSK I/TUSK II Christmas Edition, has something that’s really new. This kit contains a 1/35 resin figure of a superstar in recent years. You must know him. This figure has two head part options, one with a Santa hat and the other with the iconic hairstyle. This kit also contains an M1A2 SEP Abrams TUSK I/TUSK II model kit."
 
 
sarcasim is "on".
 
So, a Diorama with the Church Ruins or the Afghan Home.  What's your choice?

It’s funny you mention that.... The closer I get to retirement, the less my filter works. I can say stuff to the brass, direct and with all due respect to the rank of the brass, but needing to be said, that less experienced guys can not, and get no ill results.

It's a supermarket tabloid, not "the media". This was a joke story. It's like getting all knotted up because the NE ran a story saying that someone was abducted by space aliens and that the "government" is hiding the evidence.

O, they would not be worried about ruins in the Mid east or Africa, but somthing in dear old blighty would deffinetly cause tremours.

Notice in the orignal article that its not Afghans they are worried about upsetting, you know, the ones who might have lived in such a building. Its British veterens they seem concerned about. Because as we know, British vets are such delicate flowers and are very very senstive and need people like the Mail to be offeneded on their behalf.

 

I would switch my sarcasim off, but after 48 years, i still can't find the damn button.

 

At 62 mine is frozen in the on position. I do see this article as a farce anyhow. It's not a reasonable point of view and I don't really see how anyone could much share it.

TB do you realize that the Daily Mail is not a real exercise in journalism. It's like the ones in the checkout line at the Piggly. It's a total joke of a newspaper.

"Woman becomes pregnant in the mouth after eating baby squid". That kind of thing.

This thread got my thinking, has then ever been a kit of a bombed out London house? Like one would have found during the Blitz? Not that I want to build one, I'm just wondering if reactions would be different.

What if someone released a kit of the wreckage of the WTC? That would upset me.

By the way, I loved the Daily Mail Song, thanks for that!

 

I thinjk the difference there is you are talking about a specific event, you can put names and faces to it.

I don't think there would be any issues with a London house, any more than any of the houses that are on the market, French, German, Italian etc.

And you ask if anyone has done a bombed out London house. Field of Glory has this.

Because this is the UK old boy, we have to be offended over somthing or our day is not complete.

That is funny! Toast

One thing comes to mind is the general public sees no difference between a toy and a scale model. If you're reading this, you already know the difference. A toy is, well, a toy. A scale model is something we put lots of work into to try to recreate something.

Were this Airfix kit marketed as a child's toy, well, wait a minute........I still wouldn't be offended. So much for that line of thinking then.

Edit: and btw, this article title wouldn't work in the US, because 'sick' doesn't mean sick anymore. Due to to further and sadly rapid decline of the beautiful English language by us (thank you very much Bow Down).......I think 'sick' now means 'very cool', or something like that. I don't really bother to try to keep up anymore.
