But wait there's more! : 2019/20 WNW Lancs, Dr1s, Aces, Hansa-B, 32075?, Limited Ed's etc

Recommended Posts

I am very much leaning towards getting the 0/400 for my Christmas present to myself.   Such a neat airframe and the folding wings make actually display friendly.

Update: CAD images of Dr1 - A lot simpler than the Handley Page!

In may ways, alot simpler than the Roden offering, too.  Meaning: less parts forward of the ammunition magazines (no fuel/oil tank or engine detail aft of the firewall).  The cryptic reference to the production models looking different is suggestive, but what specifically?

I’m sure the reference is standard boilerplate legalese to cover any changes they may, or may not, make when they do the actual production molds.

It was a sight to see in person at the Nats.

So WnWs is going to release two Dr-1s I bet they go away at a blink of an eye.

 

I hope I get mine before they do. I also hope they have the sense to kit a ton of them.

I bet they won’t.  They will go quick, but I think they will still be available for at least a year, like the Fokker D.VIIs and Albatrosses were.  I’m sure WNW know the kit will be a big seller and probably have the sense to make an appropriate sized production run.

Yes. There is a lot of detail going on. It looks almost challenging to put together, but well worth it. A bit of a masterpiece in plastic engineering. I wonder how they will do the clear parts with the frames?

 

I look at that and back at my HB Liberator and feel slightly deflated. What a difference in quality...oh well...

Their pre order backlog will be daunting. The logistics of storing such a large production run and getting it to market might delay new releases but hey, we finally got Dr1’s! Well by this time next year anyway...

Enough just to keep us interested...

I wonder also if it’s to keep some company in China (or elsewhere) from ripping off the design. Although I guess they could just wait and do it later if they dared.

 

Must be hard for start-ups to protect intellectual property. Luckily 1/32 WW1 Kits is a select market and it took an individual, Peter Jackson, to make it possible.

 

Echoing a previous statement I hope WNW and CSM liaise so they don’t end up doing the same kit like a SPAD or Hanriot.(As long as at least 1 of them does!)
