  1. Looks like the no-bust boxing is catalog listing QS-002 (just above "PLANE" on the box cover) and the listing for the bust version is QS-002s (just above and to the left of MvR's head.) Two different offerings from Meng?
  2. OMG - Is that a sleeping Norwegian Blue? Is "The Lumberjack Song" next???
  3. The N.XXI and N.XXIII are available for pre-order at the Copper State site.
  4. I inquired regarding this subject a week ago and received the following from Richard Alexander on February 9" "Hi Ron, Thank you for your inquiry and concern. Most people in China are taking extended New Year holidays at present. There will no doubt be some additional procedures that the people who are transporting goods from factories in mainland China to ports will need to contend with. So there probably will be some delays but as it is a developing situation no one can estimate what delays (if any) there will be to Wingnut Wings production. The biggest determining factor remains
  5. "Fred Jack, which „huge book“ do you refer to? " Almost certainly the book from Flying Machine Press, authored by Davilla and Soltan, "French Aircraft of the First World War."
  6. If you haven't tried the Nieuport 17 pair from CSM - they are on sale at 55 Euros (pre-VAT) here: https://www.copperstatemodels.com/page/store/WyIyIiwiW1wiMVwiXSJd
  7. Lukasz said they hope to bring it in at 99 Euros but they had not finalized that yet.
  8. The Baby also saw service with France, Italy and Norway.
  9. Track - let's get this thread back on...
  10. Has there been indication of release dates for the Nieuports and the star-strutter?
  11. "... Yes it’s quite unique - kind of chunky looking bird. " Even chunkier with the so-called "baby coffin" enclosed MG mount on the upper wing. There are a raft of schemes for the D.I, most of which have unpainted plywood fuselages with large geometric shapes or letters and CDL wings. Linke-Crawford (27 victories) was a well-known user of this aircraft as well as the Phonix D.I and Aviatik(Berg) D.I (WNW please add these to future releases.)
  12. "... Brandenburg D.I, anyone ?" Yes, please!
  13. LOL - I'll start saving now. I anticipate buying several of each!
  14. Hoping to put this sub-thread to rest, MVR flew at least seven F.I/Dr.I: F.I 102/17 September 1917 - Factory finish of Olive streaks over all upper sufaces and fuselage sides; "Fokker blue" base coat. Dr.I 127/17 Mid-March 1918 - Red cowling, struts and wheel disks. Olive streaked upper surfaces and fuselage sides over clear-doped linen (CDL.) Light blue undersurfaces. Dr.I 152/17 March 1918 - Red cowling, struts, rear fuselage and tailplane, top of upper wing and wheel disks. Otherwise as 127/17. Dr.I 161/17 March 1918 - Red cowling, struts, tailplane, top of upp
  15. I apologize for asking the obvious but do you have "PayPal Balance" selected as your default payment method?
  16. I encountered this a couple months ago and was told by WNW that you can pay with your PayPal balance but not with a bank transfer. In other words, move money to your PayPal account before ordering, then do the ordering process. It worked fine for me.
  17. So - 32068 = F.I/Dr.I (early) and 32069 = Dr.I(late) Pheon is planning about 90 Dr.I decal sets so I need to start saving NOW (oh, and live long enough to buy/build them all - I'm only 76 so no problem...)
  18. Based on the WNW Photos thread the HP O/400 (kit 32039) will be joined by its predecessor, the HP O/100 (kit 32051.) Different engines and some internal differences.
  19. The two Handley-Page O-type engine nacelles are not the same. The upper one (more streamlined) looks like an O/100 nacelle. Is there an O/100 kit or conversion set lurking in the wings?
  20. You are correct, of course. That's what I get for not fact-checking my aged, spotty memory.
  21. Hmmm....wouldn't they need the D.III first? Maybe a combo kit with a land/sea option? I'm still holding out for a Star-strutter or anything Martinsyde or anything starting with "B.E."
  22. I envy your creativity in problem-solving and your dexterity in bringing them to fruition. Looking forward to the completion of this project.
