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

Recommended Posts

It took 10 years for WNW to do the DrI, while the Albatros DV was one of their first kits, I don’t think we will have to wait 10 years to get an Albatros DIII.  However it is clear right now their plate is really full and we won’t see a DIII soon in my opinion.  However I would bet we will get one in less than 5 years.  I think the DIII is too important of a kit for them to ignore, so I think we will see one in the next few years.

Sorry to rain on everyone's parade but if it's an Austro-Daimler 6 (and it sure looks like one), then it can't be a standard Albatros D.III only the Austro-Hungarian version i.e. the Albatros D.III (Oeffag). The standard Albatros D.III used the Mercedes D.IIIa engine. It does mean we're likely to be getting something Austro-Hungarian from WNW for the first time, though.

 

 

Yes, but it wouldn't be the first time they placed two engines in a single seater either.  I would venture more toward the Aviatik but the Albatros would be awesome.  Like I said though, this is good news for the Porsche fans out there no matter which way they go.

Awesome. We have at least 1 Austrian kit coming, possibly a d111...

Actually another source says they used another engine on the flying boats. Will have to re check...

According to Wiki the Lohner and

bigger HB’s did. So I’ll take that!

It’s only a small flying boat!

Yes about a 30cm wingspan (1/32!).  A similar  Hansa versions was about 38cm - so no Felixstowe! From what I’ve read the smaller one didn’t have the Daimler engine but happy to let Wingnuts work that one out...

l would opt for this one too only cause is unique. There is a flying boat fighter l was interested in but at the moment  l can't remember . l don't think it is the one above.

Yes it’s quite unique - kind of chunky looking bird.

Even chunkier with the so-called "baby coffin" enclosed MG mount on the upper wing.  There are a raft of schemes for the D.I, most of which have unpainted plywood fuselages with large geometric shapes or letters and CDL wings.  Linke-Crawford (27 victories) was a well-known user of this aircraft as well as the Phonix D.I and Aviatik(Berg) D.I (WNW please add these to future releases.)
