That may well have changed since they are sold via WetaWorkshops.
In the meantime feast your eyes on this.

The WNW 2F1 "Navy Camel" just arrived at Sprue Bros, where I had an alert set -- it's now on the way to me. Better early than never, I always say :)

Nice one John; very envious! :grin:

Weta Workshops appear not to have stock yet, and it's by no means certain that customs charges won't be an issue it seems. An email response from them states that they have no control over external charges :evil: :frown:

And in better news, in this month's edition of Airfix Model World there is an advert from Starling Models, who now stock Wingnut Wings kits :grin: :grin:

UK stock and prices are similar to cost of buying from NZ, appears to be £5 postage whatever you order, and I'm now awaiting delivery of a Sopwith F.1 Camel 'BR.1' version :-D :-D EDITED TO ADD I've just had an email to say that although showing as 'In Stock', they won't actually be in stock for 'about a month'....... :roll: :frown:
Image

For those interested, the website is here: http://starling-models.co.uk/index.php?id_category=56&controller=category&id_lang=2

I have no connection with this company, and do not take any responsibility for any life issues that may arise from purchases made :ha: :-D

Well, finally the WNW Camel has arrived.....a quick glance in the box confirms that it is well up to the expected quality (and so it should be for the price) but as to if it will be built during this GB we shall have to see :roll: I have other candidates that will take up less time which may be an unfortunate deciding factor in mt eventual choice of build

Well, I've dug the Roden Comic and William Barker camels out of the stash and there is plotting and scheming and kit fondling going on.

I'm excited about these WNW kits I'm seeing here. Ambitious people.... I like it!

Ambitious perhaps......nervous (in my case) definitely. :-D :roll:

How many of us would desire a new Airfix 1/24 Camel. While breaking many of my self imposed model rules: Me Me Me.

I've no evidence that 29(F) Sqn flew the Camel, so I will not be participating in this build - sorry!

I've got my kit out, checked and replenished my paint supply, but have yet to sit down with the instructions and lay out a build and paint plan.

Unfortunately, SWMBO has decided we must go off for that 1st weekend which is ideally when I would be working the exterior paint to create the rib-effect. That is the same time I would be amusing myself, getting a start on the various strut and interior wood, so I will really start from behind.

Regardless, I'm counting the days ....

I've just ordered the Revell 1/28th Camel, don't know if it's any good but I thought I'd go big for a centenary!!. Plus I don't fancy rigging another titchy biplane just yet! :lol: .
