I for one am very happy with any new WW I announcement, no matter the scale. But I'm especially happy when it is 1/48. When it comes to biplanes, I think 1/72 is too fragile (at least for my fumble fingers), and I'm not willing to pay over $200 USD for used WNW kits. So until that situation changes, I'll be giving my money to Eduard (and Roden, And to whomever can provide alternatives to Roden decals)

I have just seen some pictures in the latest issue of Eduard's 'Info' magazine. Looks like they are going to give us quite a few armament options!

Pictures are on page 9 but screenshot attached.

Indeed, looks like a Comic as well as the 'standard' camels. What would be really special is if they could do a two-seat trainer... :)

Cheers,

A real comic camel ;)


Sorry too much excitement, but its one of my favorite aircraft, and i was so wishing it had been done in 1/32. But hey 1/48th will do.

While I agree somewhat with everyone’s “why a Camel” I also agree with the opinion that 1/48 is the best scale for ww1 aircraft subjects.
I built the original camel when it first came out, I found it an easy build, but I’d built a few Blue Max short run kits by then and there was pretty much nothing that phased me fit wise...  it was always my finishing that let me down.
That kit was though, a bit of a disappointment.  The rib takes were horrendous and frankly, put me off building the other two I still have in my stash.  I guess I could spend a few hours sanding them off, replace them with more scale renditions, but...
The latest two efforts from Eduard, the SE5a and the Siemens, have the rib takes better, but the stitching is overboard.  Way over scale.
Let’s see how they look on this new one huh?  I’ll probably buy it...  if only to encourage Eduard to do what I really want in a well moulded 1/48 kit and what I wished WNW would do and never did...  an RAF BE2c.

Cheers,

Hugh

I'm looking forward to this release. Be nice to do a side by side with the older boxing.
Bring it on Eduard!

Limited edition kit of British WWI fighter
aircraft Sopwith F.1 Camel in 1/48 scale
with two Biggles fictional markings.
Eduard are releasing a re-tooled Camel in a 'Dual Combo' Limited Edition. 10 marking options.
Along with 'Brassin' extras seat, dash, Vickers, wheels and Rotherham pumps!

It seems a strange choice to me. I'd have thought a new Pup, Tripe or Snipe would have been more popular, but what do I know!

I guess sales will determine on whether we see a ..snipe , pup , tripe . I'm still rooting for them to re-tool their Tripe  ;)

Y

ears ago, Eduard had announced a Halberstdadt D-II/III, even showed a color rendering but suddendly disappeared, perhaps this is the time  to contact ED agin with requests for this kit.

Hi, good news about any company coming out with quality WW1 kits. Camel, meh, jmo. If they did an equal amount of 2 seaters or 2 engine bombers then great. Where do you get the space for a 1/32 Gotha or Felixstowe? Personally I like 1/32 for doing cockpits and fiddly bits. But once the winspan is >35cm then handling and finding space a challenge. Once again just my 2cents worth

Oh good, one of the decal options is "Donner-wettter", seeing as I missed out on the WNW version   >:(

They have put out a glimpse of a test shot on their Instagram page. Looks like the rib stitching might be a little less prominent than the SE5, but not much. Wheels look pretty good though!
