The metal is the main reason I haven't bought the Beaufighters yet. If they get re-released in resin, I'll have to buy some.

I spent some time reading your posts about Blood Red Skies. Thanks for posting so much information. It was nice to read a closer view of the problems Warlord has faced getting/keeping the planes in production. I was annoyed when I discovered some of the planes were made in metal, but I'm pleased to see that was just a production expedience they're looking to correct now.

Most of my planes are 1/200 resin castings by AIM, and I like them just fine. It's an easy material to work with (removing/fixing flaws), takes paint well, holds a reasonable amount of detail at 1/200 scale, and it's very light. It is subject to warpage under pressure and temperature changes, so storage is turning out to be a PITA, but the warping isn't permanent (it can be fixed with a bit of heat). I also worry a bit about the longevity of this resin (am I going to find my resin castings liquifying or crumbling in 30 years?), but so far it's been admirably durable.
