WNW Albatros DV 'Richthofen'

Recommended Posts

I can see them wanting to sell them...

 

 But is there any point in pre-ordering if it's likely not to sell out like a Stone's concert?

 

P.S. I just noticed that the sprues they're showing for MvR are the same in my Trilogy kit...  So, no improvement on the spinner situation.

I think I'll wait for them to get serious about the Red Baron's legacy and see if they can top Roden's Fokker F.1, :whistle:

 

BTW, I am not "holding my breath".

^^Maybe someone else will come to the rescue regarding the Fokker Dr.1.  Have you checked out the impending foray of Copper State Models into 1/32 scale?  Impressive.

Just checked out Copper State.  Some great WWI kits...  but in the wrong scale.  I refuse to build any A/C model that requires wire rigging under 1/32 scale.

 

My vision, even augmented, is too bad for anything smaller...  besides...  Big and clumsy...  that's me.

In following your comments, as well early reviews of their Salmson, I think that for the price they should provide a serious alternative to their flimsy landing gear and wing struts.

 

With the 2-A2 landing struts, for instance, without reinforcement, your finished model will tend to "lean" one way or the other.

 

Frankly, from seeing your Roden Albatros build, in spite of some snobbish remarks, Roden still seems to do more for the money.
