Wing nut Wing’s 1/32 Lancaster

Postby Mark » Fri Sep 28, 2018 5:56 am

Yup, you heard right. Although Wingnut Wing have only made 1/32 WW1 planes up to now, they are planning to release a 1/32 Lanc next year. Assuming the quality is the same as their current kits, it will be an absolute stonker. Their WW1 kits are outstanding, and incredibly well researched, so extremely accurate. I’m sure this will live up to their reputation.

Definitely one to get excited about!

This is total news to me. HKM has a Dambuster in the works and I do think that the release is on the anniversary next May.

Thanks for the news.... I will pass it on!

The word on the wire is that (A) hard core WW1 WNW fans are annoyed, and (B) many people think that this will be the best 1/32 Lanc available. Time will tell (although the WW1 fans are already annoyed :laughing-rolling: )

I've got a WNW kit in my stash, and the quality is amazing, so I'm expecting that the Lanc will be equally amazing.

I can't find a reasonable copy of the picture to have a look at the CADS they have done.

This is HKM's test shot. There has been, I am told, detail added and "tightening up for joints etc where needed since these test shots, and as soon as mine arrives you'll get a good look at the kit through the lenses of my big camera!

I think Mark saw the test shot when he went to the show earlier this year when we had all the disruption so he can give a verdict on what he saw, but as it was a test shot and not the finished retail item there would be quite a few changes and detail added.

Still..... 2 B-24 Liberators from Hobby Boss, HKM's imminent Lancaster I and now a Mk III "464 Provisioning" Lancaster from Wingnut Wings.... in large scale... We're being spoilt and the market must be there or else Hobbyboss and Wingnut wouldn't have bothered.


It looks like there's going to be some big builds from me in 2019!

Yes, I did see the test shot of the fuz last May. Big and impressive, but they hadn’t added any external details at the time.

Wingnut Wings have only made WW1 planes to date, so it will be interesting to see what the make of a WW2 bomber. They are superb kits, and highly recommended. Without a doubt, the best WW1 aircraft kits available at the moment.

There are a couple of reasons why I haven't delved into Wingnut Wing's catalogue is that they have no Fokker Triplane in their kit range and the rigging frightens me! Also, the prices can be a little off putting, at even 1/32 scale some are very small kits.... The aircraft are small in real life!

Also, the paint schemes and losenge pattern can be hard!

Still... Wingnut have a stand at Telford I believe this year and maybe worth a look!

They often use decals for the lozenge pattern. After rigging sailing ships, a biplane is easy :lol:

They are certainly the best WW1 kits on the market, and amongst the best kits regardless of subject matter. Stunning quality, and plenty of photos of real aircraft in the instructions. Well worth putting one on your bucket list.

I think that the Lancaster "battle" will come down to this:

1 Who gets to the market first.
2 Price
3 Marketing

I agree that whoever gets to the market first will have a big advantage. However, once both are on the market, I think it will come down to quality and price. It's going to be really interesting to see the two compared.

An interesting fact pop pickers. The owner of Wingnuts is the director Peter Jackson who has long been linked to The Dambusters. its fair to say that this release is not co-incidence.
