Another WNW re-release...

Recommended Posts

Are you sure this is a re-release? They have (or had) a Hannover Cl. II but I think this may be a new (early) version. In any case it's a WNW kit so it's all good.

Yep, it's apparently brand new.

 

No, it is the exact same kit as 32024.  If you look at the instructions, it has the sprues with 32024 on most of them.  The ones that don't are engine or accessories.  The only thing new is decals.

:D Cool! The decals look good - the lozenge looks a bit better (IMO) than the first release. Maybe we will a future release for a late or post war Hansa-Brandenburg w29 or Gotha for those that missed out the first time...?

That's actually par for the course with WNW; issuing an existing kit, but with new parts for a slightly different version, as was done with the Fokker D.VII's, thus from my view, a new kit, though not necessarily all new tooling.

Apart from the decals it's exactly the same kit as 32024. The only genuine difference I can see in the instructions is that the 'Early' version doesn't use parts D10.

I noticed in the latest issue of SAM that the Wingnut add shows 3 new releases for 201 which are not the Lancs, Pup or 0/400 so this may be one of them? I picked one up on eBay a few months back at quite a good price and I have an idea that the Hannover had sold out and wasn't generally available so maybe this is just a re-pop with new decals? Wonder what the other 2 releases might be?

Yes, in the parlance of Scalemates, this is a "new parts" kit but not a "new tool" kit.

Typo for 2019? That’s interesting. If that is the case and the definition of ‘new’ includes re-pops then this could be 1 of 3. So yes what will the other 2 be ? Re-pops or new new releases. There is usually the Christmas surprise...

Re-release or new I'm in. I'm new to LSP's so I missed out on some beautiful WNW kits. I want a Harry Tate but the heck if I'm paying aftermarket prices for one.

May be worth looking at the Halberstadt Duellist boxing these, like you I missed the Harry Tate first time around and not interested in spending way over for it. Instead I got two great kits in one box for a much better price.

I'm sure that's the best way to go. I should probably pick the set up before it's too late.
