Roden 1/32 Sopwith Strutter end March/early April
« on: February 23, 2023, 07:27:20 PM »
On their facebook page Models for Less in the UK have the following announcement


"Roden 1/32 ROD635 Sopwith 11/2 Strutter £45.99
MJR Price £40.85 GBP inc UK Evri - TH - Due End March/Apr'23"

with attached artwork.

Seems an absolute bargain to me. I'll have a few - although presumably there'll be single-seat. two-seat and French versions etc to follow in the pipeline.
Let's hope the decals are good this time.

I'm tickled for the large scale crowd!

Not my scale so I won't buy one but I will absolutely enjoy watching you guys build these, especially if there is a Comic Night Fighter version to follow.

I am sure they will do as many versions as possible a la Nieuport series.

Hi Sandy,
This model was due for release mid-2022 with the Avro 504 later.
Here's the forum post by Dave.

Mike


Roden have just advised me that they are proceeding with development of two more 1/32 scale WW1 kits for 2022.
The Spad XIII Late will be released first but Vladimir says the Sopwith One and a Half Strutter is now definitely on the production list for a mid-2022 release and they confirm a 1/32 scale Avro 504 will be released toward the end of the year.
Vladimir says Roden is persevering with its re-launched WW1 line, despite sales of the Spad XIII Early falling short of their hopes.
Roden re-launched its WW1 production line after a detailed Forum poll identified the wanted kits.
The message here is clear folks- if we want Roden and the other manufacturers to deliver more plastic goodness we need to be supporting them as much as possible.
Large scale WW1 aircraft still have a future thanks to Roden, Copper State and Lukgraph leading the field and a new Aviattic kit in development too.  There's still plenty of wind under the wings for our hobby!

Here's the forum post by Dave.

I don't understand why you're quoting this old post, Mike?
Most of us were excited to read Dave's news at the time but had heard nothing since and, with world events etc, the release date had elapsed.

I was delighted to learn on FB this week that MJR were taking pre-orders and thought it worth sharing news of costs, boxart and updated availability with our friends here.

If/when any of us get news of the forthcoming 504 I hope they'll similarly post an update.

Hi Sandy,
I quoted the older post from Dave as there may be forum members who may not have seen that post and are unaware of the projected release and also the Avro 504.
Rob's previous post is a case in point as he seems to have been unaware of the 504.
Your initial post made no mention of the original post from Dave, the events since or the possibility of a 504.
To some it may have read like brand new information from Roden, which it's not.
Forums are for sharing information to like minded people.
That's why I quoted Dave's older post,
