Great news, indeed.  I'll need to start planning some purchases.
I hope they can improve the engineering of the new kits with better attachment points.  A harder styrene would be nice, also, for those in-scale landing gear legs.  The level of detail has been good, but improving that would really be a plus.
May have to re-think my next planned scratchbuild (Avro 504), but it looks like I have time to get that in before Roden releases one.

Amazingly pleasant news! As for me, I will be getting the complete trio of the announced first possible releases.

WOW! Three releases that are sure to be great sellers. The Strutter is one I have wished for for years in order to finish My 43 squadron RFC / RAF collection! I also still have a few SPADS I would like to build in the future.  Looking forward to the time when these come out

This is great news, and I'll definity buy these to encourage them to develop more 1:32 WWI aircraft. 

But I do have a question, where is the announcement?  I don't see it on their website or facebook page.

They can count on me to purchase several of their new releases.

Same here. I will buy at least one of anything new they release just on principle. Must encourage good behavior :-)

Brilliant news, and great choice of subjetcs. I'll get a 1/2 strutter for sure, and probably a SPAD or two.

Still hoping for a series of OEFFAG Albatrossen  ;)

Thanks to the Forum and Roden!

The SPAD is one of my top wants so definitely will be picking that kit up in multiples if it does come to production! The other two possibles listed were not top interest for me personally but I will support the effort and pick them up as well.

I will add my name to those hoping still for OEFFAG Albatrossen in 1/32

I am so happy to hear this news.
I wish Roden every success going forward and I look forward to supporting their efforts with kits in stash.

Thanks for this great news, Dave!
Who would of thought a kit company would take notice from a forum... But we all know this isn't just any old forum, it's the most respected WW1 forum out there.

Happy days!
