OK, We no longer need this particular string. Now we know.

I just ordered the Albatros B11.

I am thinking now that maybe i should have waited until January. The kit will have to get pass the sticky fingered temporary postal workers in Queens , NY before it gets to me. So far they have crushed one kit and lost (stolen?) another that WNW sent to me.

Oh well. Sooner or later I'll get it.

I must say that I was rather surprised to see the B.II, but also rather pleased, as I have no real interest in this aircraft or the other one just released. Now, if the Fokker D.VII (Alb.) will just stay available for a few months so that I might get one,...

I was going to procrastinate tonight, but decided to wait.

$119 equates to not far off £100 when VAT is added - with the threat of delivery charges floating around in the background. 

 

And that's with a reasonably strong Sterling.

 

To me, this makes them expensive kits - more so than Tamiya, which usually come in at the £75-£90 mark for WWII era kits (except twin engined Mossies, of course). You also need to add rigging & turn-buckles of whatever description.

 

They are a lot smaller than your typical WWII Tamiya kit, with a smaller part-count - less plastic all round.

 

I appreciate that is not the whole picture, but is there a concern that the $119 price point will see Wingnut Wings kits maintain their excellent quality reputation, but perhaps may no longer be seen as unquestionably good value, especially when delivery charges start?

I think you maybe need to read the thread a page back?

The PE spoke wheels are a nice touch, as is the detachable PE nameplate for a base. As an aside, the Camel is listed as kit 70, so we've a bit to go regarding new releases.


in progress:

 1/32 Hase Me-109G2/R6
1/35 Su-85/ winter- attach to base
1/32 DH-9a USMC- Delivered to Flying Leathernecks Museum, MCAS Miramar
1/32 Mig-3:winter paint and weathering: in progress and base
Yacht America need some parts.

I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place...
Yes, I built models when I was a kid too.... no they're not toys....

The post-war NINAK and the Albatros B.II are available again (for pre-order) on the WNW site.  I have my first B.II in hand and it is gorgeous!  Second one has been pre-ordered.

How the HECK did you get yours so fast, Ron?!?

 

No idea - didn't even get a shipping confirmation.  It just showed up.  My post-war NINAKs (ordered the same day as the B.II) still haven't left NZ.
