   Great news for those who missed the "Harry Tate" when first released! I suspect there may be some speculators on the Net who are a little miffed ............ too bad! ;)
   Kudos to Wingnut Wings, they've been very busy of late!
Cheers,
Lance

Just looked at the price, you basically get the RE.8 for $100 when you buy the Halberstadt at the regular price.  Not bad for the long missing RE.8.  Better get one quick before they are gone.

This makes perfect sense as I just purchased a Tate for a kings ransom on eBay dang it.

Great news indeed. And on the top of it they allow you to cancel earlier order on Halberstadt kit before Nov 27th if you choose to order the duellists. Certainly - a deal for me! :D
It may mean they will be starting with pre-order dispatch just after Nov 27th  ;)

BTW, do you think it is the end of Christmas surprises from WNW? ;)

Why should it be, Przemol? Or do you mean, lastChristmas surprise for 2018?

I surely meant - this year surprises!  ;)
As far as I remember, many times they would announce the extra surprises without any advance - they were just ready for buying and sending in the beginning of December. So I wondered why this year they changed the way and put the new duellists set for the pre-order, too. Well, maybe it was done just to allow those who rushed earlier for Halberstadts to change their orders. And maybe there is still something extra awaiting us... Any guesses?

Good to see WNW "Recycling" their kits, especially the RE.8.  I like the idea of the duelist though.

This duelist release, and the "Aces" boxings ought to put a little perspective on the WNW "sold out" designation. Given a little time, OOP kits have a way of coming back. I have to admit, there are times I've wished I had more than one RE-8 just to ebay one. The money they got was nothing to sneeze at. By the same token, I'm glad to see this out as many will want one who missed the earlier release. I prolly will pass as I have one original release, in the minty fresh box; not decided if the Halb. gets my blood flowing yet.

Hi guys,

It's been a while since I was on here but I have to confess to being totally perplexed by the Lancaster so much so my interest took an exceedingly, possibly over reactive in some eyes, but never the less, truly vertical nose dive.

The HP 0/400 is not my cup of tea but this news however has brought a huge smile to my face and deposited me firmly back on a level if not rapidly climbing track. I was in Hannants this morning and the Triplane was mentioned as being in but nothing about this - I'll be camping outside for this one for sure:)

Oh yes, I hate to crow but on this occasion I think I can allow myself a sense of self satisfaction. At last I managed to speculate reasonably close for a change https://forum.ww1aircraftmodels.com/index.php?topic=9651.msg176640#msg176640 Post 23.

Next up will be the Short 184 he says - a cert believe me  ;D


Boy, am I one happy bunny.  WNW - all's forgiven :) :) :) :) :) :)

Hope you enjoy this release as much as I will

Regards - Tug

Tug,
   
      "At last I managed to speculate reasonably close for a change"


    I must say, if that prediction is just "close" I can't even imagine a direct hit! If you are planning a visit here soon I'll get you to help me buy my Lottery Ticket, I could use a sure win or two! :o :o
Cheers,
Lance

I actually am very tempted by this one. I once owned an RE8 and sold it . I like the Halbie so this combination and price is good. It all depends on finances and if anything "Better" shows up  8)
