  • 32014+90001 - FE.2b (Early) + The FE.2b Flies Again! Book US$99 (value = US$131)

  • 32025+90001 - FE.2b (Late) + The FE.2b Flies Again! Book US$99 (value = US$131)

In other news...

  • Wingnut Wings kits may now be purchased though hobby shops in New Zealand via our distributor Apex Hobbies (apex-hobbies.com) and in Japan via our distributor Beaver Corporation (FAX: 0283-85-8830).

  • Work continues on our new model of the iconic Sopwith Camel which we hope to be able to release in 2016. We believe that the end result will be well worth the wait.

  • We have received a few inquiries about how the rising US$ might affect pricing since we are located in New Zealand. It should be noted that, as of today, the US$ is still well below the value it was 6 & ½ years ago when we released our first 4 models. This, coupled with the fact that almost all our tooling & production expenses are charged in US$, means that there are currently no plans to re-evaluate pricing.

Thanks to Richard from Wingnut Wings for the images and information.
