upon tidying up my spreadsheet, i noticed there's a gap between the limited edition Albis and the limited edition Pfalzis.

3207 and 3208. i'd expect these will be D.VII limited editions, with the WNW aftermarket decals. but what's interesting is there were 5 sets of D.VII decals and only 2 numbers. of course, the others could come after the Pfalzis.

i'm kinda hoping they do a limited with reprinted Seven Swabians. i don't like it but a lot of people do, and would be delighted, and they'd bank some loot.

yeah this is what i do until my new mancave's set up at my new residence... surf the net and daydream...

I missed out on the Fokker D.VII and don't want to pay the high E-bay price for one so I really do hope that they re-release the D.VII . So may be some time this year or next year ...Like you I will dream for now  :)

With the announcement of the Fokker Dr.I, my life is now complete. Now I just need to get the cash together to grab four or five (before they're sold out).

Well sold out of that boxing. I’m sure they will re release many times.

Quick question for something I probably have missed over the years. On the Wingnuts site archive photos of the Dr1 late, the 33rd (0175-003) image shows the port wing of 512/17. What is the data behind the interplane strut. It appears to be hand written as opposed to stencil. Sorry if this is a common Fokker Fakkt.

Steve...took a look...on the same page on the top row, 5th and 6th pic, is the same machine with a little better angle to see that...it does look a bit more handwritten than not and it's on all three wings as well... and on both ends. I don't see any such notation on the wings of any other DrI shown, early or late. But, of course, that settles nothing. Minor mystery, I guess.

Quoting from news updates in today's WNW email bulletin:

"Co Vid-19
Yes unfortunately CoVid-19 has affected us as well, with most of our China based factories operating at just 20-50% capacity (and more recently, Italy, where we have our decals printed, effectively locked down) we will be experiencing delays;
32039 1/32 Handley Page O/400 (now expected for release later in 2020)
32043 1/32 Avro Lancaster B.Mk.1/III (now expected for release later in 2020)
32044 1/32 Avro Lancaster B.Mk.III “Dambusters” (now expected for release later in 2020)
32051 1/32 Handley Page O/100 (now expected for release mid 2020
32068 1/32 Fokker F.1/Dr.1 (Early) (now expected for release 2nd half 2020)
32069 1/32 Fokker Dr.1 (Late) (now expected for release 2nd half 2020)"

Mouldings from China and decals from Italy.. the ultimate double whammy... But we are very patient and still look forward to the new releases! I'm sure they will come and be absolutely wonderful! Marc.

I'm not too worried about the supply of new kits being later than predicted. My stash would have me self isolate for 14 years not 14 days. I can wait  :o ;D

Just a few short weeks since our popular Wingnuts speculation was all about what we'd see next. To quote LP Hartley "The past is a foreign country, they do things differently there!"

Maybe the last speculation should be for a model of the Flying Dutchman's ghost ship.

Your speculation about the Flying Dutchman's ghost ship is both apposite and inspiring. Some would even say germane, but that would be inaccurate.

Cheers

HeeHee, I like what you did there, Syd.
(Perhaps Wagner's Hollander would be more germane?)
