WNW new kit hint

Recommended Posts

WNW has a hint on their page of a new kit - http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/productdetail?productid=3207&cat=5

 

Looks to me like an early rotary engine, but I am not sure  which one.  Any thoughts as to type?  And next step we can figure out what aircraft used this engine.

 

Probably won't be a Martinsyde Elephant.

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.

Looks like Avro 504K. An aircraft that was very famous in WWI but been absent from WnW lineup.

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.

If it is an Avro 504, people are going to have a field day building kits as post-war barnstormers, let alone in-service machines.
