Off topic.. a 1/1 Mosquito NZ restoration

Recommended Posts

I guess this is the ultimate end hobby for some. This is the 3rd Ardmore workshop Mosquito restoration/rebuild being flown in NZ. Do you think Wingnut Wings will do a Mossie to accompany that anticipated detailed Lanc? Seems Avspecs have their hands on all those DH microfilm plans.

I can say that Wingnut Wings will not tackle a Mosquito as there is a perfectly good kit out there from Tamiya & HK Models.

The one WW2 aircraft that'd be PERFECT for Wingnut Wings would be the Vickers Wellington.   Designed by Sir. Barnes Wallis himself, so it continues (precedes, actually) the Dambusters theme, carries the name of the city Wingnuts is located in, and can you imagine that surface treatment done the Wingnuts way?  I'd be in happy happy land.

I can't see anyone else doing a Wellington, only Wingnut Wings. A truly underappreciated bomber which brought the war to the enemy in a big way until the Lanc and Halifax came on the scene. 

The Wellie is one of those rare aircraft that served on the front lines for the entire war, and just like the Liberator, was used for countless different missions, and performed admirably at them all.

Personally, I would love to see a Wellington! But not till after a Sterling!

I’d agree on a Sterling, but a Wellington just makes sense....

If we got a Sterling, then a Hamilcar would be hopefully along soon.

If we are into Dreamland, I’d still like to see Sir Peter Jackson prepare a movie with a B-58, or A HP Heyford ...

Ok, the Heyford would probably not sell that many, not even as a resin kit ...

I agree, having been born in the heart of 3 Group a Stirling would be my first choice. Now residing in the heart of 5 Group, Wellington and Lancaster and we have two of the latter. Very few if any Halifax’s were operated by 5 Group but maybe wrong......
