Yes, Italeri attempting to jump on the WWI bandwagon - but in a very cheap way by utilising Academy's deeply mediocre moulds.

 

It looks bad when they supply some string to rig the model that looks like it used to be holding up knickers in a previous life.

Uugh, had hoped they at least used the nicely retooled molds from Hobbycraft for the Camel.

 

About all you gain from these is markings.

Well let's hope it's the retooled Academy Camel, not the original Hobby Crap POS that keeps being flogged.

The photo on the link appears to show the huge raised lines that pass for ribs on the Academy Camel wings. That is really a shame, as "Wonga Bonga" is a pretty cool name for a Camel.

 

As for the Nieuport, maybe a kit bash with a Roden N.24 or 27 kit could do better? The interior and the hollowed out area under the fuselage and behind the engine might serve much better than this kit. I really want a great N.17 and family, plus a full set of the great Russian and other Eastern European decal colors as seen in the "Coloring Russian Aviation" book series. Still hoping for "more", just like Oliver Twist.

Surely WnW has all these types in their plans.  Sir Peter is way too smart not to...

So far, except for the Salmson, they've shied away from French airplanes, so I'm not holding my breath on the French stuff.

We sure could use a new Albie D.l or 2 seater, though...

Jennings, the retooled Hobbycraft Camel is a VERY decent kit, but they are super, super hard to find.

The only way to be sure of what you're getting is to look for the Clerget Aces or LeRhone Aces Camel boxings. They always have the new tooled plastic.

Darn shame; any of those, if new, would certainly appeal to me. I'm so spoiled by WNW though, I'm sure I wouldn't really be content with anything else.

My reaction is RIGHT on par with yours K2.

 

Regardless of anyone saying how nice they are.........or how we dont need any kits that already exist, that said, I have PRECIOUS LITTLE MODELING TIME these days, and Ill be damned if Im going to spend it dealing with sub par kits of ANY kind, unless I am either:

 

A. - SUPER passionate about the model

B. - I REALLY want to build a particular model for whatever reason and the crappy one is the ONLY one available.

 

Im just not passionate enough about any of those airframes to put the needed effort into Italiari/Roden re-pop.   

However that being said, I DO make enough disposable income that I would spring for a WnW kit of any/ALL of those. Take it for what you will, and I know lots of peeps who have no issues tackling a sub par kit, but there are just TOO many really nice new-tool kits out there of planes I really want to build, for me to be spending any amount of time building and correcting a bad one.

I'm with you, Brian. The exception might be the old odd scale (1:27?) Revell WWI fighters, as it doesn't seem likely they'll ever be replaced, and offer a nice excursion into the world of doctoring up otherwise not such great kits, though they too, can really be turned into beautiful models, given some care. I have the SPAD XIII, Camel, Dr.I, and D,VII, and have been wanting to resume work on the Dr.I again this year.

I know. That's why I said I hope the Italeri release is the new one, not the crappy old one that Academy keeps flogging. I've never been able to find the newer kit for sale at any price.

If anyone can confirm the specific provenance of these kits, I can add them to the Kit Database, and assign them to the correct kit families.
