Anybody have a copy they are willing to sell? Seems like the publisher would do well to have a new printing.

Actually it seems impossible to find a copy after WNW finished its run.

I believe you're thinking of the the two Wingnut Wings Air Modeler's Guides.  Vol 1 has gone through two printings but Vol 2 is still available.

But, the book AlbertD is looking for is Veen and Hendrickx's terrific book.

I'm fortunate to have all three and they are amazing.  It's a shame they've become so hard to find. 
I was just studying them last evening in preparation for my WNW DH.9a project.

i found my copy of Stringbag! at HLJ. it's now showing as backordered:

https://hlj.com/stringbag-a-modeller-s-guide-to-the-art-of-wwi-aircraft-isa5883

i've had pretty good luck with 'backordered' and 'out of stock' stuff from them. if they really think they can't find it anywhere in Japan they'll put

"This item is discontinued and is not expected to come back into stock"

I emailed the publisher and got a reply pretty quickly. He said there are plans for a re-print but does not have a date. Thanks for all the replies. I'll keep looking for a copy while I wait for the re-print. Maybe I will go ahead and place my order with HLJ and take a shot.
