I think the logical thing would be an Avro Manchester ...

I would have quoted that in my previous post if I'd clicked on the link instead of assuming VMA131Marine meant the Lancaster's elder brother.  Another type I'd not heard of until today.

Clearly, my attempt at humour was too subtle.

 

WnW is doing a Lancaster series and the Lancaster was derived from the similar, if ultimately ill-fated, Avro Manchester. A Manchester conversion is clearly feasible. But, I was referring to much less well-known WWI biplane bomber, a subject which is more aligned with WnW's typical subject matter.

Far too subtle!

 

I assumed you meant the ww2 Manchester - I had no idea Avro, of all companies, actually built a WW1 twin engine bomber called the Manchester!

I'm not so sure - after 50+ years interested in aviation, and modelling, there are still obscure WWI types crawling out of the woodwork that I've never heard of.

 

My 3:

1. Avro 504, in both a J/K and a postwar N boxing;

2. Comic Camel

3. Sopwith Baby floatplane

 

If no 1 counts as two choices, delete 3.

All good picks! I’d say a Sopwith Baby would have to be in the mix definitely..

That aircraft is news to me, and I'm a Mancunian! Please WnW, don't bother, ever.

Just received their email newsletter, and they will have a Lancaster test shot, as well as a brand new release (to be revealed on Sunday) at Telford this coming weekend.

I'm just hoping they'll start rolling out some French subjects.

Some of you guys said Breguet 14 .  That would be a great start.

 

Yes it would! They would probably do 2 versions with French and American decals. Would be happy to see some Belgium, Italian or Austrian subjects too. But the French need more representation and PJ has one in his museum so surely it’s in the mix?
