    Actually I was thinking Takom, another high quality Chinese kit manufacturer. Dare I be the first to say it? Takom Lanc out late 2020? If they owe on the Dr.1 molds, I doubt the Lanc molds are paid off. Makes me wonder if working with WNW gave some of these manufacturers experience in quality kit making. Both Meng and Takom have rather quickly started producing very high quality AFV kits nearly out of nowhere. They have quickly surpassed Trumpeter in quality.

    Yes, I also read the discussions on FB. Because this comes from the WNW designer I am inclined to believe it. Just like many others my trust in utterances coming from people outside WNW is becoming increasingly thin. This proves yet again that all those people who claimed to know intimately all the goings on inside WNW had no idea this was going on altogether. Remember the insane "feeding frenzy of stupid" over the fate of the moulds? Not a single one of those guys who spoke with such "authority" ever mentioned MENG. Now the same guys say that they knew this all along and that it was "widely known". Bullplop! 
    As I said, either way I am happy that we are getting a new Dr.1.

    Great.  Just great.  I've got this kit on my Shelf-of-Doom.  The riveting pattern was killing me.  Inspiration to bring it back out.

    I look at it this way...If it IS the WnW mold, then we're in for a treat.  If it's not the WnW mold, we're in for a potential treat.
     
    What goes on between businesses is not only none of OUR business (unless you've  a financial interest in either of the aforementioned companies) it's normally trade secrets that are usually protected with layers of both IT and legal blankets.  If a former employee says it's their widget then it may very well be...the proof, as they say, will be in the plastic.  wait and see... Meng kits are usually VERY reasonably  priced.

    Oh dear, the Meng kit already has insurmountable problems.
     
    Better stick to the Mirage 2000, F-100F Hun and MiG-29UB instead then. 
     
    And that Meng Lancaster is all wrong: the blunderbuss have incorrect woodgrain and tape in the wrong place. Totally unbuildable.

    I take the exactly opposite position.  This almost has to be the WNW kit; Meng did the tooling for the WNW project.  The WNW project has been announced for a while now.   No way Meng was going to venture into WNW's territory with their own project.
     
    The Meng kit is "available soon."  Not enough time for them to do their own project independent of WNW, post WNW closure.  
     
    Taken from the Meng Facebook page:  "We know that you have been waiting for a carefully studied large scale Fokker Dr.I model kit with precise details for a long time."
     
    That's their reference to the WNW project IMO.

    Agreed.  AFAIK, the standard Dr.1 camo was the streaky green camo, with partial or full areas of solid color added.

    As far as I'm aware, the Dr.I was never fitted with lozenge fabric to begin with, so that's no real worry.

    Queue speculation about "you-know-who sold the you- know-what to guess-who". At first glance this looks like a brand new tool. 
    Remember when Copper State Models announced their Hansa Brandenburg and WNW had to immedialtely show that they were planning one too? I said then that WNW was going to face serious competition from a lot of other companies who wanted a bite of their lunch. Well, here it is. And I suspect there will be more. This may sound like blasphemy for the WNW cultists, but in the end we, the modellers, win.

    Finally finished...........this was a bit of an experiment as this is the first model that I used AK panel line enamel washes rather than oils.
    Paints are a mixture of Tamiya and Gunze
    Barracuda resin seat, the belts were either RB Productions or HGW, I cant recall which
    I had major problems with the fit of the radiator cowling and the lower engine panels, however that was my error as I didn't follow the instruction manual sequence when fitting the engine and radiator assemblies. I should have known better !!
