What's New / Re: Shock news - Wingnut Wings is closing down

Damn - now I don't know what to do.

Should I scrape together enough to buy all the engines I might need for future scratch builds? Would those orders be honoured? What do I need?

I'll try and sit tight and await further news

Hi!
I just CAN'T believe PJ won't back up WNW. It's his baby.
Surely other factories in China are up to the task.
Don't believe it.
Ciao
IWik, hopeful.

Hi all,
I believe the wood inserts were fitted to reduce vibration in the twin wires.
Some other aircraft designs had a bracing strut fitted between the front and rear wires, which effectively did the same thing,

Great result - you should be proud of this one. It is a big model so I hope you have somewhere to show her off! Cheers Matt

How can we help? Can we at all? Buying even more WnW kits probably won't help, as money should not be the main problem with Sir Peter backing WnW... Sad!

Heya Everyone,

I don't post often here, but I do still check in weekly since I left WNW. This is really sad news, but not a total shock to me at all. If it's going the way things I am being told, it's very sad for all those that have been involved with WNW. I just ask you to keep everyone in your thoughts at WNW that are effected during this shitty time.

I have been following your build closely as it is so relevant to mine. I keep telling myself that if Richard can do it in 1:48 I can in 1:28...I keep telling myself.

Oh don't worry - I can't do this in 1:48. This kit is 1:32!

Richard Alexander, General Manager of Wingnut Wings has responded to the Forum request for an official comment on what is happening with the business right now and the reports it is being closed down permanently.

He says: " Nothing is finalized yet but it looks pretty grim. Very sad. I hope you understand that I have nothing else I can say at this time."

It's understood final decisions on the future of the company will be made in the next week or so.

I guess you are one to know....
I always understood that WnW is a very small operation, maybe there is nobody around to pick up the phone due to covid-19?
Just a thought, simply not willing for WnW to end.....
