Really surprising since HK Models is so close to being done.  I guess when you're rich you can do whatever you want though!

Think about this folks.

Wingnut Wings is taking their quality into the WW2 scene.  A truly surreal feeling this is.

I need a tissue! F*** me running! Any word on release # 3, not that I  care after Lanc news, but could be anything now!

I hope they stick with WW.1.  Yeah, WW2 as well, but keep WW1 as the core.

Good news though. I seriously doubt this will impact the HK kit.  WNW is probably a year away, giving HK a year to themselves.

  • Pardon my French, but un-F**KING-believable.  My opinion of WnW and Peter Jackson just dropped into a cesspool.  What a low life move.  Very childish.

I have contacted Dave @ WNW, he can confirm that over 8 years of research, design and tooling have gone into this model.... so far. Damn this is going to be epic.

I hope this isn't just a joke. It would be nice though if WNW does get into WWII a/c. How about a B-26 Marauder and a A-26 Invader?

I doubt this is a full blown venture into WWII. He is, albeit slowly, making a Dambusters move and his people have probably been all over Lanc's for that to begin with.

Only if Marauders and Invaders were to star in one of his next movies. ;)

WNW's decision to tackle the Lanc, thus going head-to-head with HKM, could be largely connected to Peter jackson's ongoing The Dambusters remake.  Quite obviously Mr Jackson didn't contempt himself with full-scale Lanc mock-ups... And we all know one thing for sure: He's nuts!

To think Mr Alexander stood there, silent, amongst a bunch of us fanatics…..and said nothing. I told you Martin we should have used truth serum.

I won’t dignify the wishing for new kits circle of doom.

However, if he’s doing the Barnes Wallis story, then back up a couple years and give us his beautiful creation, the Vickers Wellington.  Can you even imagine the WNW treatment on the Wellie’s fabric and geodetic x frames?
