Interesting, I don't think it will be overly expensive as far as WnW goes, will wait for a review or two and might get one, it would be a quicker WnW build too I'm guessing and I'm leaning more towards quicker builds just now for the most part.

No worries - mine also has all the Specials and Mini Datafiles too (and it's already in Excel) if you want it.

WNW kind of moves to the beat of their own drummer.

 

Their world debut of this kit has gone through a German online retailer, Modellbau-König....and yet at their stand at the Toy Fair in Nuremberg, they have no pricing information, or a release date!  

They don't even have all the sprues/components of the kit nicely on display for review.

They could learn a thing or two about promotion from Tamiya or Hasegawa or ____ at the big Japanese model shows.

 

On top of that, they still haven't gotten around to updating the website with news of the kit.

 

I'm sure we'll get it in a few days.

Any idea how much you'll be paying for it, or when you can buy it?

 

:hmmm:

Oh yah... Looks like the "Other" category wins the poll ('the other WNW thread). Collectively we called it right.

Last couple releases they were at US distributors in a couple days. I'm not necessarily even getting one, but curious.

I will buy one if and when it comes out. Hmmm why would I know how much it is? I have no connections to WNW and if it is too much I can change my mind. I was gung ho on the Tigercat but that changed.

What a bunch of amateurs. And yet their kits consistently sell out. 🤔

Very interesting.  :hmmm:

 

I might just be tempted into my first WNW kit.  I think that says a lot about just how hard it must be for manufactures to choose subjects to produce.  Many will think this one boring or irrelevant.  I think it's bold and interesting.  The possibilities in paint finishing get me going to start with.  If I can build it with the wings or one wing off then all the better to make a unique display.  Just my two cents worth.

I think I will buy one just because I have only seen a few photos of this bird, and one thing I love about our hobby is the opportunity to relate to a three dimensional representation of that unique thing from the past.

So finally I will be able to finish my WNW Junkers D.1 build that I've started 5 years ago at the Wings of Great War GB   :punk:

The more I look at photos of the Junkers D1, the more I see 1930s roadster hot rod with wings!  

 

:rofl:

 

Am I the only one?!

I see a child's make believe tin toy. But the car does also fit.
