Anybody use Reviresco's models for WOW/WOG? Nice range, but they'd be heavy.

Just for Canvas Eagles. The planes balance well and take abuse well. A bit fiddly to assemble.

I have several and mounted along the lines for WoW. The stands I used are by Areodome and are two inch hexes with telescopic rods that go up to I think 12 or 18 inches with magnetic heads.

Agreed… rugged once built.

Actually, they work just fine for me. I mount them on a standard clear plastic flight stand and place that over the actual aircraft card (with which I execute the actual movement). For altitude, I merely use a number counter to indicate level placed on the card. K.I.S.S. Principle.

The models themselves are rugged once built, especially those that require brass wire for the struts.

If you like white metal aircraft and want some of the more exotic types of aircraft used in the Great War, I highly recommend Reviresco's wares.

John McEwan is a class act who has been a part of our industry about as long as I've been alive, and he's really something of an unsung hero of this hobby of ours, having introduced and/or promoted everything from 3D aerial combat using plastic model aircraft, 3D starship combat games using miniatures, sci-fi ground combat with miniatures, and quite a number of historical subjects for wargaming essentially ignored or neglected by other manufacturers.

I highly recommend his models and service, his WW1 aircraft kits being no exception.

Regarding stands, see if Corsec has something for this. I would imagine they have a product that is very robust. By the way, i don't find the metal planes heavy. They weigh more than plastic to be sure but they really aren't that big.

I use the Litko bases. I have a bunch, Hanriots, Siemans-Schukert, Halberstadt, Fokker E III, Pfalz, Fokker DVII, SE 5a, etc. Many predated the WOW versions
