WNW new kit hint


Recommended Posts

I’d love a BE2 but live in hope not expectation.   
 

Clearly not this time around :(

Dare we hope for an Avro 504?

That is a possibility.  Or a Vickers Gun Bus.  Or a Cauldron.  Or Pfalz Eindecker.

 

Depends on what exact engine we are looking at.

100% certain Avro 504 k 

How so certain?  Well Bandsaw Steve on here is doing a magnificent scratch build on here so under the seventh law of modelling it’s an absolute given that a mainstream manufacturer will produce an injected mould state of the art kit just as he gets finished

If it were a pusher I feel that the engine would not be down in one corner of the pic, where it looks like the rest of the airframe will be filled in at some point. It would be much nearer the middle.

Yep - finished my one on 31 March this year - so I’m expecting wingnuts will make an announcement any day now.

I have to admit that a 504 would do me nicely as there is a local connection for me. 
 

I am still hoping for a SPAD having been wrestling the Hobbycraft one for some weeks but I would want one that self rigged.....

 

oh, managed to acquire a set of Pheon decals so will be doing the Memorial Flight one in honour of the massive hangovers we all had after taking it to Luxeuil in 1991

Is this the end of an era?  If the rumours are true I can not see any other manufacture filling this market.

Copper State maybe?

Yes that was my first thought it does open the market up for them. Every cloud and all that. I have made several WNW kits but never made a Copper State model. How do they compare?

Ive not built one either but have seen and read quite a few builds/reviews. They compare quite favorably with WNW’s from all that Ive seen.

I have a CSM 1/32 Nieuport in the stash. I've thumbed through the instructions and examined the sprues at some length but not started building. It looks to be a kit of the very highest quality. Very comparable to WNW kits, you wouldn't be disappointed if you bought one. Might start it once my Triplane is done.

The Caudron G3 would be nice to see.  I won't build it (wrong scale)but I will enjoy watching others build one...

 

Sorry...edit...wrong motor if that's a 110...Te Caudron had a LeRhone 9C...

If WNW drops out I think several others will step up including CopperState (which are excellent).  I can see Special Hobby putting more into 1/32 WWI kits, there instructions are starting to look like WNW and you would get PE and probably some resin.    If there is a market you can be assured someone will fill the space.

Just to let everyone know, just before the close down I placed an order for a decal less Albatross and a Sopwith Dolphin.

 

Today I had an email from Wingnuts assuring me that all outstanding orders would be shipped as soon as lockdown closes and they are able to access the building.

 

Admitedly it was addressed ‘To Colin’, but I put that down to one person sending a lot of emails on a template.

 

Still much better than Hannants that sent me DVII with broken parts and have not answered either of my emails, the first sent on 15 April.

They have not answered any of my emails dating back to the middle of March requesting updated Trade price lists. I note that Weta Workshops are still firing out trade emails though.
