Poll: The New Wingnut Wings Announcement will be...

WNW New Release Announcement  

83 members have voted

  1. 1. What will the new WNW kit be (to be announced at Nürnberg)?



Recommended Posts

I had the weirdest dream a few days ago that I received a WNW dogfight double kit with an RE8 and a Dr1. It was so vivid I txted my buddy Derek Davis as proof I had the dream!!

 

 

In the hands of the correct German pilot, Im not sure that would be much of a dogfight

I would love a whole family of Nieuports. But that's not going to happen.

A whole family?  Maybe not.

 

One?  I think that is certainly possible.   It would be in high demand I believe. 

 

I really do wonder what their project selection model is these days.  It can't be purely what Peter Jackson wants.

First off, I doubt he has a lot of model making time these days, (LOL) and secondly, the company needs to break even and keep revenue high enough to stay afloat.

 

Every now and again they probably have to crank out a project designed to be a big cash cow in order to pay for the oddball stuff Peter wants.

Model making dreams are great!

 

When I was a kid (maybe 13?) I had an incredibly vivid dream that I went into my parents' basement and every giant (at that time) aircraft you could buy was built and hanging from the ceiling.  It made a very impressive display and I can still picture how vivid and real the whole thing seemed.

 

It was like a B-52, 1/48 B-29, B-36 Peacemaker, stuff like that.  Big kits!  

It actually inspired me to buy and build a few big kits, including the Monogram B-24D and B-17G in 1/48 scale.  Pretty big kits.

Well, I just voted in my own poll, and went with the Dr.1

 

Sure, I'd love for them to do that one, but I have a gut feeling this is going to be it, b/c of the way they are pre-announcing the announcement of the project.

 

This doesn't seem normal and it gives me cause to believe it will be something special or what they believe the fans want.

That spells out Fokker DR.1 to me.

 

(And it is probably why it will probably be something entirely different!)

 

:hmmm:

Bleriot XI

 

Interesting suggestion; don't recall tons of Wingnutters discussing that aircraft.

 

Amati, the Italian wooden model ship builder, has had a Bleriot kit in 1:10 scale on the market for years.

 

Not sure if that would impact WNW's decision making model or what.

Im thinking that may (may) have some reacting unexpectedly like they did to the Taube;  with a possible lack of weapons, and some mildly lack-luster schemes, it might turn a few off.

I know a couple guys who started feeling that way on the Taube; hard to get motivated for whatever reason.   I could be way off base on that one though.

They have always made kits like that. Some sell out immediately, some are still available years later

I agree that the Taube makes me think that the BE.2 is possible, so that's what I voted for.

 

What I would like to see is some Austro-Hungarian or French. My Holy Grail is a Hansa-Brandenburg D.1 Starstrutter. Yeah, I know, crazy.

That and WnW's dominance of British and German types that monopolize their product line, and for one exception could seem to show an aloofness to French variants, for which I am thankful to other manufacturers!

 

Otherwise, I would like to see  Caudron R 11, but not necessarily at their prices.

I hope for a Fokker DR1 in time for the 100th anniversary of the Baron's last flight. 

 

 

Im about 90% sure (or more actually) its not a DR.1, but Im about 100% sure I wish it was.

The poll asks what you think WNW will do, not what you prefer.

Good list to start with but could use a few more choices. A number of the "preferences" stated in this thread that do not match your list have been showing up on this site for a few years. Maybe WNW has been looking?
