Wasn't tempted by the HK kit, but will definitely get one of these. The gnashing of teeth over on Large Scale Planes about how this is this is unfair and and "act of hubris" on the part of WNW is over the top. :blink:

Interesting departure from their WW1 products. I wonder if there is any other era on the cards, or other kits from WW2 they may announce?

It will be a magnificent kit for sure - though way beyond my skills to do it justice. I'd like to see Bishop, Flying Kiwi or some other chap on Kiwimodeller take it on.....

Gary will buy one. He is a sucker for big kits like that.

Me, I will be waiting for a 1-32 Shackleton. :P

I like Shackletons to you know :)
Yeah I'll be getting one, will also get the HK one just to compare, but the HobbyBoss B-24s are a higher priority to me.

Mind you, Airfix's latest announcement of a new tool 1-48 Spitfire FR Mk.XIVe for 2019 has me excited more. I have been waiting for an accurate rendition of this type for a long time now.

Well at just under 1m x 0.6m I'm going to need a much bigger shelf or some ropes to suspend it from the roof. Although building a pond in the garden and having it mounted just above the water fitted with solar powered height finding LED lights pointing down in a 'V' ..... hmm:woohoo:

People are completely forgetting that Peter Jackson was doing a remake of the Dambusters movie, hence the dambusters version (and him having all the info for it). Apparently it has also been in some form of development for about 8 years. And rumoured price at this very early stage is maybe £500 but no doubt that will be revised as we get closer to a release. It may well also be the only WW2 subject WNW do but who knows.

I think it will be an absolutely stunning kit if the other WNW stuff is anything to go by. I would say that It will definitely have an equally impressive price tag.

It was interesting looking at the available images of the two Lancaster projects from HKM and Wingnut. I don't think the Wingnut kit was going to be released anytime soon and was an as and when project to be co-ordinated with the release of the Dambusters film re-make, whenever that might happen. I suspect as HKM's kit got closer to completion it forced Wingnut to bump its Lancaster up the priority list or lose potentional sales to the HKM kit if no-one knew of Wingnut project. For those that can afford both kits and have the space to put them and the time to build them, it might be a case of Xmas presents to themselves in 2018 and 2019.

The lack of a believable skin texture on many ww2ish era planes has long been one of the main reasons I don't get heavily into aircraft modelling, because you cant really make up for that! This looks special.

Yeah I want one of each of these, I've been looking for these special edition pre-orders but I can't seem to find one outside of the US or the UK. I don't suppose any will be making it here (unless they have a huge mark up).
Its a shame that nearly all model imports in to NZ are controlled by a single entity and those that aren't are usually quite expensive, I guess it's the cost of living on this beautiful island, small trade off really :D

That's $630 NZ without shipping from Germany, nah I'll try to find somewhere in HK it'll be cheaper (I hope).
Thanks for the link though Maarten

According to Wingnut Wings, their Lancaster is projected to be only slightly more than US$349 so that could end up being around NZ$550 depending on the US-NZ exchange rate prevailing at the time. The US dollar is far too strong against the Kiwi at the moment (.64) that I wouldn't contemplate buying anything in US$ unless I abosolutely needed it. Hopefully our exchange rate will be back around the mid-.70's when the Wingnut kit is released.

OK. the HKM Lancaster is now showing for pre-orders at Hobby Easy in Hong Kong. It is around NZ$636 to land in NZ and then with GST plus Customs and MPI cost recovery charges it works out to approx $780 by the time you get your hands on it. At that cost I'll give it a miss thanks.

If anyone is fortunate enough to be passing through Honk Kong on business or holiday they could pick the HKM kit for approx NZ$540 and bring it back to NZ as part of their accompanied baggage and not pay any shipping or customs charges.
