    19squadron got a reaction from Pup7309 in WNW site update: Pup & HP’s   
    I had a feeling there was a Pup with rockets abroad.
     
     
    No doubt there will be a Pfalz III. some time as well since some of the sprues are marked Pfalz III.a and some are marked Pfalz III/Pfalz III.a

    19squadron got a reaction from coogrfan in WNW Dr.1 engine - is it Rhone or is it an Oberursel?   
    Yes and I wonder if that is in fact true? and not a myth?
     
    and  in fact that most Dr.1's had a Oberursel copy of the Rhone 9Ja and pilots prized not a genuine Rhone but an Oberursel copy of a Rhone 9Jb, such as the one in Berlin with an Oberursel maker's plate, or the recovered Oberursel copy of a 9Jb from Richthofen's downed Dr.1 which was falsly credited as being a Le Rhone engine in april 1918 and is famously and mistakenly phgographed with a hand written sign saying "Richthofen's Le Rhone"
     
    -- and that both the Oberursel copy of the Rhone 9Ja and Rhone 9Jb are called UR.II's despite them looking completely different. If that is not the case, very few Fokker E.v's and Dr.1's were in fact Oberursel engined, they were in fact Le Rhone engined, which would imply that there were a hell of a lot of recovered Rhone engines that went into German aircraft.......at the factory!
     
     the WNW site for Le Rhone/UR.II engine sprue photo archive illustrates the point.

    All the above aircraft appear to have Rhone 9Ja engines rather than Oberursel UR.II engines or Rhone 9Jb engines. I do not think this has been discussed much before - WNW have broached it in their F.1/Early Dr.1 kit, but not all the above aircraft are early Dr.1's.

    there are many Le Rhone engines -
     
    But these Fokker triplanes above all have a Rhone 9Ja or copy fitted. Above a Rhone 9Ja

    I bet [and hope] an Albatros D.D, D.II and D.III come along first - just look at the WNW language descibing the decals for the Roden kits in the Richthofen Albatros boxing.

    ^^ As a person who has lived in this area (Cleveland, TN) his entire life, it really can't be beat.  The cost of living is the best in the country,  Chattanooga, sits anywhere from 1.5 to 2.5 hours driving time from Nashville, Atlanta and Knoxville.  The Ocoee national forest is an hour away.  Those who love Civil War history will appreciate the fact that there are several battles that were fought in this area and are memorialised, including the battle of Chickamauga.  Outside of Gettysburg, Chickamauga national park is either on a par with or better than every other national park I have been to see.
     
    It really is a city on the edge.  From a sports standpoint, we seem to have equal numbers of Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and Auburn alumni/supporters in this area.  Tennessee probably has slightly more than the others.  Anyway, it's a great place to live.

    Given that WNW are also about to re -release an 80hp Le Rhone 9c, I'd guess that thius engine also powers the new kit.
     
    Given the aircraft that flew this engine, my guess would be a Bristol Scout
     
    or just possibly a Bristol M1, or yet more possibly a Nieuport 11?

    Wings too square in my opinion to be a Pfalz, rear edge of rudder leads elevators too

    Absolutely, but no one will do it better than WNW, because no other manufacturer cares about the reseach as much as WNW do.

    Wouldn't it be so much nicer if WNW did a Mk1 Spitfire, in early, mid and late boxings? It would be so much more accurate - imagine nicely done rib tape on the rudder and elevators etc, instead of Tamiya clumsy tape, imagine dome rivets behind the cockpit, overlapping panels and oil canning on a Spitfire. Now that would really be a WNW kit to look forward too -

    - I would not be at all surprised however that when numerous WNW kits are built and stand alongside the HK version for direct comparison, the scale of what WNW have done will become overwhelmingly apparent -[to most]!

    I bet you the WNW Lanc sells as well as the Gotha IV and the Felixstowe 2a, and the reason the HK lanc is not selling, is exactly the same as the reason so few HK Mossie's sold once the Tamiya was out. Credit to HK but they have been outdone by the accuracy and quality of WNW and Tamiya.

    When you next visit the UK, make a trip to RAF Hendon to see the original Lanc there, and you will see without the misleading nature of photography, just how accurate, and well done the WNW surface is. - It is a new dawn in modelling and I have no doubt will be seen as such in time.
