Late 2019/2020 WNW updates: Lancs, HP 0/1/400s, Dr1s, H-B D1, Aces, and 32075 Sopwith...?

Let’s hope it’s not a Nieuport 17 from them. The CSM one is excellent. It would be nice to know that other manufacturers are allowed a piece of the WW1 pie without the biggest kid in the playground throwing their weight around.

Thought it might be another ships Camel because some had 2 Vickers or two Lewis mg’s, and different engines. WNW tend to bring out all the variants.

The kit number suggests a camel but we’ll find out soon...

You'll have to pardon my ignorance, but what's a Comic Camel?

IIRC, the Sopwith Comic was a home defense variant of the F.1 with the guns over the wings, cockpit moved back and some other differences.

I like the snub nose camel but there seems something more ‘balanced’ about having the cockpit further back, to my eye anyway.

The Comic was a nightfighter/home defense version of the Camel.  The prevent the pilot from being blinded by the muzzle flash, the fuselage guns were replaced with a pair of Lewis guns on Foster mounts atop the upper wing and the cockpit was moved back about 12 inches.

If its a Nieuport 17, sorry, I already have one... But a Comic Camel or a Baby would have my credit card yelping....

Thought the wallet was going to get a break..! No New Years resolutions for LSP moderation in 2020, way too hard to keep that one:beer4:
