You'd probably love the Deutsches Museum in Munich, if you've never been there:

Yep, and we even punctured them with "bullet holes" using heated pins and used cotton wool to simulate smoke.


I'm looking for the more complex 1:32 and 1:48 models, especially the bigger ones, such as the B17, He111, B24 etc.
i used to build them too, and balsa and tissue paper flying models, I've got a 1/48th scale B17 back in scotland still in the box and untouched, bought it just before Uni and then discovered other things to do in my free time. If I can fit it in a case next time I'm over you are welcome to it, it's quite a big box though from what I remember.

Conrad have a lot of regular non RC kits in the store btw.

Did that too a Fokker E-3 kit, then a scratch-built meter-long Hindenburg from plans bought at the Zeppelinmuseum in Friedrichshafen in the summer of 1975.
