The thought of Richthofen's bust doesn't do much for me, I'm afraid.

A few places around the world are taking pre orders on the Meng kit already. Hard to resist. But I’d like to see some reviews. Hoping it was 100% completed before Meng started production.

I'll give you an in box review once I get it, Daz.  Then I'll ruin it on a build thread...

Thanks guys!
I did something ‘unprecedented’. I ordered from China. So I may get it real soon or never! If a world first I’ll post photos. I’ve got a feeling it will be at least a few weeks though.
Cheers, :D

stuff is shipping OK *from* China, but how long it takes may depend on where you are. i'm in Asia so it's fast. if it goes through Germany or Belgium that may still be a nightmare, but it's improving. i had a package from the USA routed through Germany took two months.

I ordered two lots from Hannants and Gaspatch, both got to Rhode Island in the usual 10-12 days.

I order stuff from China & it arrives within 2 weeks, sailing serenely past HMRC.

Although I did order a Tamiya F4U-1d from China a few months back. It arrived in 3 weeks, but the box had been shaken around so much, when I opened it all I had left to do was paint it.

I just saw pictures posted that show the Meng Dr.I assembled without paint. Also shows a MvR bust sold with it. Looks great although the cowl doesn't hold a candle to recent masterpieces shown here.
Not sure if it is ok to post the URL. Someone LMK if it is.

From the Meng Facebook page today, here are some images of a test shot of the Meng/ Wingnuts Fokker Dr.1.  This is unpainted and the plastic used is not the type likely in the release kit.









The kit is due for release at the end of July/ early August.

i've got plans for 5, but i'm not dumping my Roden/Encore either.  it does look good though.

but i'm in no hurry to buy, the priority for any incoming resources goes to first a Gotha UWD, and then CSM Nieuports (3x 17s, 3x 21s, and a 23).

meanwhile i'll continue to fantasize about an infinite magic bank account and some free time at the bench...

I've got two on pre-order.  One from Luckymodel and another from a local friend.  It'll be interesting to see which get it to me fast.  But there are a lot of empty shelves in Australia usually filled with stuff from China.  So, who knows...

BTW....  is it me, or do the guns and other added parts outside the cockpit (like the flare gun and holder) look a little underdone?
