NEW: Factory and Airscrew Decals, from Wingnut Wings
Now, I bet you wasn't expecting that! WNW are a company which certainly play their cards close to their chests, and I really don't blame them. Despite cutting swathes through the competition in terms of subject and quality, every release from them is a revelation, and these latest FULL SIZE decals were certainly never seen on the radar....until now, that is!
Whether you flew an Albatros, an LVG, Sopwith, or a Bristol Fighter, your aicraft would have either had an airframe company logo, or a logo emblazoned on each prop blade, to define the company which created it. Yes, sometimes, there would have been both.
These full size 1:1 scale emblems are produced in the regular water slide decal format, and would look simply amazing is affixed to a glossy wooden model display stand, with a few coats of varnish to seal, and then your WNW model sat atop! Of course, there are MANY applications for these, and I'm sure you'll find your own excuses to buy them. These are LARGE decals and the prices vary from $12USD to $29USD.
The current crop of new decals are:
- Axial Propeller Decal
- Albatros Factory Decal
- Bristol Propeller Decal
- Fokker Factory Decal
- Garuda Propeller Decal
- LVG Factory Decal
- Sopwith Factory Decal
These are Limited Edition too, so if you hanker for any of these, don't wait around! We'll bring you more news about these as soon as we can.
Here a few images of some of the new range:
What about some aircraft? Ok.....
We are indeed waiting patiently for WNW to release their next crop of kits, and many of us, including me, have our own wishes as to what those next releases might be. Until then, feast your eyes over the images we have here of some test shot models, with thanks to Richard Alexander at Wingnut Wings, for suppplying them. Please remember that the quality of what you see here will not be representative of the finished product. As we know, WNW only release something when they know it to be 101% acceptable.
