Wingnuts announces three new models in development
« on: September 26, 2018, 09:16:17 AM »
Wingnut Wings has posted announcements on its website of three new models in development.

No clues as to subjects but they are listed as kits #32043, 32044 and 32062.

The announcement states the new models in development will be announced at the All Japan Model and Hobby Show in Tokyo 28-30 September 2018.

Let the speculation begin!

My thought too.  But then, my bank account would prefer reboxes since I have most of the original releases.  :)

I'm thinking Halberstadt Cl. IV, two boxings, long and short fuselage and maybe a Camel Comic.

We know the Halberstadt CLII is on the ways.  These three are the mystery.   I suspect one might be a kit hat has already been issued, re-boxed, maybe a dualist.  The caption says "new model in development."  Could be a Gotha and a Pup dualist, or, to quote Monty Python, "Something Completely Different."  Either way, it's going to be neat, whatever it is.  We will find out soon enough.

"New" means new.  Doubt we will see reissues of older OOP kits.

One of the newbies will be a DH.4, I am sure! Why? Simply because now it‘s time for a DH.4. Or a flock of DH.4s..

I think the three "new" kits will be a bit boring, may be a dualist box with OOP kits and two reissues with figures, nothing too spectacular.  :-\
I hope I'm wrong and they do something Austro-Hungarian or something Italian. ;D
Fingers crossed,

A dualist kit number is 3280x
I think the new kits will be:
32043: DH.4 (with various engines: Rolls-Royce Eagle,BHP Puma, etc)
32044: DH.4 (American built)
32062:  Pfalz D.III

Looking at their site each box states that it is a new 'model' in development not a new 'kit' (ie reboxing, duellist etc). Does that actually mean what it implies? I hope so.

Now please don't take this as 'crowing' but I wrote this a while back -

This is how my addled old cells see it
 
Shizuoka this year - WNW announce new model 'In development' but the Halberstadt, like the Junkers D1 before, is hardly 'in development' as its there in a test shot in all it's early glory. I'd guess that these have been 'In development' for far longer than the inference on either model would have us believe - so, if so - What's really in development I wonder? How long does it take say from the 'let's do this one next' to seeing it actually on a show display as a test shot 'in development'.

Id guess there are two or three, possibly even more, in development in varying stages at one time so if so that could lead to some serious speculation ;D

Like anything else it's an individuals interpretation but knowing how close WNW play their cards to their chest giving away a 'new' aircraft design as "Something with an Aussie flavour by the end of the year" is, I fear, unlikely to be a completely 'new' design

No, I'll plumb for the easy option with the Xmas release to be said Halberstadt and hopefully an RE8 from 3 Squadron to add to the re-issue list - now that will be a good (if expensive) Xmas, Then again I could, and probably am, well and truly off track  ;D

Looks like for once I wasn't too far off the mark - if so that's three new subjects - as Dave says - let the speculation begin. One thing's for sure - as previously predicted it's going to be one very expensive Christmas with the CSM Nieuport on the horizon too - ah get those wallets ready  ;D
