  1. Looking very nice. I recently built the old Matchbox Tiger Moth and I am impressed with the similarities in the two aircraft. And the engine for the Bucker looks an awful lot like the Gypsy Major engine in the tiger moth. Kit looks great and your craftsmanship ship is stupendous overall! Zach
  2. A DR 1 would be cool but if WNW wanted to keep it somewhat esoteric as they sometimes (read often) do then perhaps a Halberstadt D II? The baron flew this type as well and it has had few kits in any scale much less large scale. I'd be game for one. Or maybe they break their own rules of avoiding already kitted subjects and offer us a Albatros D III. Long shot I know abd sure the Roden kit is serviceable but I would surely jump at a WNW Alb D III. Just spitballing with these as they were others mounts Richthofen used. Zach

    I think for those of us who are into WNW kits, we've all missed at least one release we just had to have. For me it was the Re8 but hey that's life. And I ha e been less enthused about some of their subjects, like the forth coming Junkers d1 and frankly when they opened everything by releasing the J1 I was less than excited. It is what it is and I wish they would kit certain things over others but I think more than anything else they have proved there is a market for these kits and that is something others will take advantage of. Look at Copper State emerging in a similar vein recently? Good bad or indifferent as you may feel towards WNW, quirky as they are, they have been great for the hobby IMHO. Zach
  4. Ok so question about how to go about weathering lozenge Decals. Thinking of doing the Late AEG by WNW and I like to show some weathering in my builds. How does one fade these? Do they reliably take a wash? How durable are they once applied? Just looking for thoughts and ideas. I know Aviattic offers faded lozenge but that is merely a starting point so hence my inquiry. Thanks Zach
  5. I am very excited about this one. I just started the italeri kit (and the shelves it along with all the aftermarket I bought for it). Lol Would love to see CSM take off as a competitor to WNW and focusing on French and maybe AH subjects would offer some great diversity. If they scale up their 1/48 Caudron G.4. I am so buying one. Also would love to see a SPAD Sa.2 just because they are whacky and cool. Zach
  6. I'll play this year: WW1 JN-4 Jenny (N9N) Spad XIII Caudron G4 or G3 RAF Be 2 Bristol Scout Sopwith Tabloid I won't hold my breath though... Zach
  7. This is really THE phantom I am waiting for. I really want to do EDSG Ark Royal phantom and it is killing me that it hasn't arrived yet. Alas I will survive i suppose.... Zach

    X Planes!

    X-24C baby! It would have been the love child of the lifting bodies and X-15 programs and oh so cool. The black helicopter crowd even suggest it was built as a black project lol. Zach

    X Planes!

    I mean also the XF-107......Sweeeeeet airframe Zach
  10. 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 😂) Zach

    X Planes!

    Is there a possibility we might see some other experimental types in the vane of the X-1A/B kit? I admit these are a personal love/obsession but I feel like there are a few really fun subjects in this vein. I would love to see a modern large scale kit of the X-2 or D-558 Phase II or any of the lifting bodies (X-24B first). For the ^ million dollar man fans there is the HL-10.... Anyway I love these aircraft and the X-1 release has given me hope so here I am hoping for more Zach
  12. Oh the I-153 and Bu-131 will need to happen I love the Bucker 131 and 133 and I am not all that copacetic with the Planet Models kits so this should be awesome. I too would like a I-15 (and maybe an I-5, I-3 and R-4 but who am I to beg.....pretty please [especially the I-3] ) Zach
  13. Ok in my heart of hearts I want it to be a JN 4 Jenny but my rational sides hopes for the following more probable subjects: RAF Be.2c/e Sopwith Strutter AW FK.8 Because the Austrians need some love! OEFAG Alb III Fokker D VII MAG built Albatross C III Hanriot HD-1 SPAD 2A2/4, VIi or XIII Ok I will stop wishing 🙂 Zach
