I know I want a Jenny. I know it will not be a Jenny.

Whatever it is will be fun and worth considering. Branching out to other combatants would be could but there are plenty of fun options still available in their typical wheelhouse too.

I am willing to be surprised (like we had another choice 😂)

They have always made kits like that. Some sell out immediately, some are still available years later

Yes, but surely that is at least partially due to the fact that their production levels vary from project to project.  I'm sure they are not all manufactured in equal numbers.

 

I hope for a Fokker DR1 in time for the 100th anniversary of the Baron's last flight. 

 

 

DING DING DING

 

You could be onto something here!  Sent me to the archives to see when Manfred died.

 

April 21, 1918.  Hmmm.  I like this theory.

 

What people are not discussing is that WNW has decided to announce the date of...an announcement!

 

They've never done that before so by definition this is a special occurrence.

 

It begs the question: what is different this time?  Why is this kit more special than others?

 

Going with the whole 100th anniversary of the death of the Red Baron angle makes as much sense as anything.

 

I mean what is more iconic or relevant to the field of WWI aviation than something to do with the Red Baron?

 

He is probably the only thing most people know about in terms of WWI aviation.

 

People might know of something called a "Sopwith Camel" b/c of Snoopy!

 

That's probably about it.

The poll asks what you think WNW will do, not what you prefer.

Well, excuse me!  Didn't me to upset you with all due respect kind Sir.

Ha ha.  Wasn't upset!  Just clarifying for the record; I didn't want this to spiral into another "I wish they would make" thread as those are rather boring.

I wish it would be a Fokker F.1/Dr.1.  Not what I expect it to be.  I voted Be.2 because that is what I expect it to be.

It will probably be "other", but I'd jump on a WNW Dr.1 in a flash!

I went to my LHS the other day.  I didn't buy their sole Roden Dr. I because I am really hoping WNW will release one.

Im predicting this one may be something more simple, and German.  I know its not on the choice of options (and its not a "want" necessarily, but I would definitely buy one!

As much as I love the DR.1 and the Spad XIII (and WANT it to be either of those) , I think there is about a 75% we can kiss those goodbye, at least for this release. Id say its much more likely we will get something that no-one expects 

And that might just be and finally the Fokker DR.1 we are all waiting for ... and I buckled down and bought the Roden one recently :)

No problem, room for lots of Little Fokkers here :)

Have these exciting ones been suggested yet?

DFW C.V (Early)
Albatros B.II (Late)

Still missing from the WNW line-up so they'd still be considered "new" right?

Id love it if it was. Honestly though I think we are going to be disappointed (re: the DR.1).
