Actually, if I’m not mistaken, the Vickers Vimy made it’s first flight in Nov 1918.

I think you might be onto something. Just a hunch but they might want something with a post war theme which these 2 aircraft fall into. The Vimy flew from Europe to Australia in 1919. The dh looks interesting but may not be as significant. For me the Blackburn Kangaroo would be great. I don’t think it will be these:

Lol!  I just realized it was my first post.  I guess I really want a Dr.I without the fuss of correcting the Roden.

And me three, and about 10 million other modelers.

 

Given the 100th anniversary angle, this announcement, more than others, has to be of something special and significant, doesn't it? 

 

Can't be some random normal release subject matter.  Or can it?

 

We'll find out in roughly 24 hours I guess!

Most ppl on the planet want combat aircraft.  So I'm really doubting a between-the-wars type.

Then why have so many two seaters and the Gotha been sold out. I think you are speaking for yourself. I own all of WnWs multi seat planes as well as single seat fighters as well as the Brisfit fighter. WnWs  is the only Company that has ever made more than single seat fighters, and the fact that they have been selling out, proves that many do like more than fighters.

They will announce Dr.I :)

 

I surprised that no one jumps on the good Hobbycraft Dr1s on EBay. It contains a whole bunch of the Red Baron’s planes and one of Lothar’ Dr1s. I have both Hobbycraft and Roden Dr.1s. It doesn’t take a lot along with Pheon Decals to make them look great. WnWs has already said that they will not come out with one. I would think if they were, they would have already come out with one. It surprises me that no one is reluctant to buy Aftermarket parts for WW2 models but say that they don’t want to buy Aftermarket parts for the Dr1.

That's the one I'd build, Ross and Keith Smith's G-EAOU. Although I'd want to build it as the replica when she flew the route in 1994. I don't know if it helps we Vimy fans' chances but Sir Peter Jackson does own at least one large model of the type (although I can't find my photo to prove it).

 

As always, I like to rationalise my wishlist with what Sir Peter owns in 1:1. So with that in mind I'd be happy if it was any of these:

And given it's been a while since we've seen floats or a hull, this would be very welcome:

You are confused.  I said "Combat Aircraft".  Last thing I knew the Gotha was a combat aircraft, though a multi-seat aircraft.  I did not say single-seat-fighter aircraft are the only ones ppl want to buy.
