« on: April 29, 2021, 08:51:53 AM »
The Meng 1/24 scale Fokker Dr.1 kit has been released and is being advertised for sale at Lucky Model.



The retail is listed as $US61.99

The kit was originally in development for Wingnut Wings as part of a series of 1/24 scale kits they planned.

The distinctive boxart is by Steve Anderson who did all of the Wingnut Wings box art images.

Any hints about the decal/marking options? (It looks like Udet's machine on the cover?)...praying to Icarus for Jacobs, Kempf and Baumer.

Happy modeling,
Jason

Just hope they do an Albatros Dva. I can justify this.

I don't think, that Meng will develop an Albatros. The development of the Dr.I was done by WNW (both 1/32 and the new 1/24 series), Meng has "only" done the tooling (and may be finish it now). But a complete new research and development themself - never ever.

Cheers,
Frank

I think that the amount of sales will determine if Meng continues with WW1 subjects either in 1/32 or 1/24 scale. Money talks!  ;)

The experience that Takom had with their range of WWI vehicles stops being too optimistic here, I‘m afraid.

So the # of this kit is QS-003.

Any info on 001 and 002?   My feling is that since WNW started off the 1/32 line with 4 releases all at once, they would do the same here

Whole new round of Speculation and Guesses, I'll start of with Camel  and a tie for Alb Dv/VA and Fok. D VII. with SE5/5a

So just maybe Meng will actually do more, as having just one kit in a series does not lead to more sales

In response to Dr.1 Ace / Ed.... I understand Wingnuts had three 1/24 scale kits initially planned, the Dr.1, Albatros D.Va and a Sopwith Camel.

Meng were only engaged to tool the Dr.1 as they were tooling the 1/32 scale kit too. The other two projects were with unknown tooling plants and I don't know at what stage they were when Wingnuts closed.

Meng are of course entitled to tool their own new WW1 kits and we can imagine sales of the 1/32 and 1/24 Dr.1s will influence where Meng goes in the future.
