TVAL has also been publishing a lot of photos of their Liberty DH4 lately!

they've got to do a DH.4 and a Be2. as far as i know these have never been kitted in 1/32, not even crudely. and they were both numerous and important.

I agree with you Jeff, but WnW marches to their own drum beat and we are the better for it.  Keeping my fingers crossed for Des' Be2.

neither bus would be inconsistent with the peculiar drumbeat they march to, IMO. although they do have a way of kitting a variant other than the one i want (Taube, Hannover CL.II instead of CL.IIIa, Hisso instead of Viper, etc).

Now here is an interesting thought. What about a thread somewhere of Historically or structurally significant aircraft that were used operationally, even if the numbers produced were small, but have not been kitted in 1/32nd scale. Might narrow down the speculation to a few hundred  ::)

Now thatís a good idea, aircraft canít be in current production.   So DH4, BE2 are good and DR1 not.   That would be a good list

Ditto - not that it will be any consolation...
Incidentally, does anyone know what happened to the 1/32 resin pilot figures or the 'Special Edition' issues which were trailed a long, long time ago..?

I'd really LOVE to see those special editions become reality. i'd also LOVE to see everything on my wish list in my stash. i suspect WNW and i have a similar problem: bank balance and ambitions don't quite match.

SO... i love the idea of a "perfect world, most important aircraft" thread. who knows my humble, internet server-oriented company may even make a kit some day. not because we hope to make money at it, (we won't) but just because *i* feel it should exist...

  Ok, Rick.. a very good idea...so how about a thread right here...it's still WnW wishin' and hopin' ...a machine of which only 526 ( not a huge amount) were produced and I don't think there's a 1/32 issue of it (is there?) and that's an Oeffag Albatros DIII...pretty structurally significant in that Oeffag strengthened the lower wing ridding the V-strutter of its infamous wing failures....and think of the color schemes they sported. I'd get one, you bet.

To my knowledge, no Avro 504 variant has been kitted in 1/32, and itís inarguably a significant aircraft. The only issue with that particular aircraft, though I love it dearly, is that the landing gear legs are tremendously thin, which would present some significant challenges to mold one strong enough to support its own weight. Iíd love to see one someday, but itíll take some challenging engineering to make it work.

Every time Wingnuts announce a new kit I'm hoping it'll be a Be2c.... or a Sopwith Baby.... or a DH5...an Avro 504K would be especially welcome...but I'm delighted with the Junkers D.1 too! .... then again an Oeffag Albatros DIII would find a ready home with my other WnW kits.

We are becoming spoiled for choice gentlemen!
