i guess you and i are the strange ones. i like the roden 1/32 dr.1. its a fun kit. that seems like a bad move to me buisness wise. now in 5 years when they have done all the others that dont have any 1/32 kit , sure then why not do a dr.1. JMHO

I doubt that we will ever see a Fokker DR.1 from Wingnuts, the Roden kit is very respectable and builds up to be a good looking model, a kit of the Be.2a would be a far better proposition  ;) ;)

 You know the long and the short of it is,I really don't care which kit is next in the que. I know it will be an outstanding kit and I'll buy it for the collection. Just my 2 cents.
Highest Regards,

I think of all the responses, yours is the most correct, Steve.

Although this answer may be the best, it is not nearly as much fun as SPECULATION  :-X

Speaking of Wingnut speculation, has anyone peered into their styrene ball and divined which kits will disappear and be sold out? I only want to outlay for WnW kits as I am able to build them, so the thought of speculative stash building isn't too appealing. On the other hand, the thought of a kit selling out and then having to go to eBay to pay through the nose for it is even less appealing.

The two that sold out would never have been my first guesses. I figured the Alby's would go first but then they must have run a substantial # more of them. Im going to stick with , like my next release theory,...I dont know....buy the ones you REALLY REALLY like.

Good point Lindsay! I'd have thought the Albies would be on the endangered planes list, but I'm inclined to think the Fok DVII s are selling well, and may be a contender. I know I'd like a couple more. The Roden Sopwith Triplane has a short fuselage IIRC. WNWs kit is a little ahead of the Roden kit I guess.

Wingnuts have assured me that they have produced enough of the popular kits to meet demand, so the Albatros and Fokkers will not be selling out in any quick time. I can fully understand the Hansa Brandenburg W29 selling out as it is an obscure type, I for one had never heard of it before the kit was released, as far as the LVG selling out is probably because it was one of the first kits released and it had just run it's course and it may not have been a huge seller. I felt for sure that the Junker J.1 would be on the endangered list, not what you would call a pretty aeroplane. After the release of the next lot of kits maybe some older kits may be targeted for extinction.

If it costs a six figure sum to produce the moulds, once a kit is sold out, surely the possibility could exist for a re-run at some future date?

Dave, my understanding is that once a kit is sold out, it is gone, unless slated for "High-end" selection.

I can't see why the can't have even the most basic of stock tickers on their website. It would certainly help with making informed decisions as to what kit to buy next because with import costs and VAT they're not cheap.

Has anyone thought that this could be the perfect time for WNW to announce something?
