    PJ wouldn't even need to do that - all he'd have to do is re-open the company and hire staff as WNW didn't go bust, it was voluntarily closed.

    I think PJ is quite protective of his IP, he had almost all of the sets for the LotR destroyed so they couldn’t be used in other films and the full-scale Lancaster reproductions he had made for the (now dead) Dambusters film are still languishing in a warehouse in China. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if he retained the molds.
     
    Honestly, I believe all these rumours about the molds resurfacing are either wishful thinking or mischief.

    Unlike WNW kits, this rumour gets re-released with startling frequency.

    It's noticable that a number of the Facebook groups where this rumour originated from have now removed the posts...

    Greg VanWyngarden ( a noted WWI aviation historian) has stated that D.VII F 5125/18 was almost certainly painted white at the Fokker factory at Goering's request.

    Personally I think it's more likely that the white was painted over the lozenge rather than being a total custom job. There's not much evidence of lozenge in the photos of 5125/17, but I would assume that the inside of the cockpit would still be 'interior' lozenge.
     
    As ever with WWI, it's all down to individual interpretation from period photographs so neither approach is wrong.

    It's just British slang for someone who is a bit of a show off about their possesions - 'No WNW Gotha G.IV in your stash, chap? Well, I have two...'.

    Meng doesn't have any of the other WNW molds, only the Dr.I, and the chances of anyone re-popping the remaining WNW kits in the foreseeable future is remote.
     
    As an aside, the seller managed to find someone to buy the kit for £850...however, someone is now trying to flog one for £1,100!

    Sad news indeed, but if I can offer any advice I'd say keep on building for as long as you can. Keeping your mind active not only helps you maintain key skills, it also gives you motivation to get through the bad days.
     
    I introduced someone with PTSD to modelling and it's been a discovery for him. As he says, the simple act of sticking pieces of plastic together eases the mind.
