WNW site update: Pup & HP’s

Recommended Posts

They've put the new cowling on the rocket sprue, then added 80hp & 100hp Gnome sprues.

 

It makes you wonder why they don't do more of this, as the marginal cost must be small compared to tooling a new kit?

 

Well, I do wonder, then I remember than WNW are not a classic, normal, profit-maximising company.

 

The advantage of having a billionaire WWI aviation fanatic as the owner.

 

They've even managed to find a non PC-10 example! (Even if it is a trainer).

The Pup is one that got away before I ever bought one.  I've had my eye on the Royal Navy version when they come up on Ebay, but it will be easier and cheaper to go this route.  So another welcome move from WNW, as was the Sopwith Triplane.

Interesting scheme with rockets for a lot less than eBay. Glad I was outbid on the last RFC Pup that came up. Wonder when we’ll see a re-box of the Pfalz and Se5a?

Nice to see the original cowlings are included in this offering.  I've got a couple of resin Le Rhone  9C's (Vector? NeOmega?) in the stash, so I won't have to pony up "Collector Cash" to get one of the first two Pups,  and the Le Prieur's are just what I needed for Ball's A.200 Nieuport 17.

I'm with you. I'm waiting for a new Pfalz and SE5 without paying stupid expensive ebay prices. I keep hoping for more British 2 seater's too.

I had a feeling there was a Pup with rockets abroad.

 

 

No doubt there will be a Pfalz III. some time as well since some of the sprues are marked Pfalz III.a and some are marked Pfalz III/Pfalz III.a

Nice predictions! So if they do a Pfalz 3 then Se5a could be in a duelist/ Aces boxing...

 

I thought there might be a Pup / Gotha duellists set coming, maybe it still is. The rockets can be used on quite a few a/c.  We are still to see other home defence types like the Sopwith Comic, Be2e and Dh4.
