.................. .
First posting on Kitmaker.net and sure to be inspired and educated by you folks. Now, after "life got in the way" for many years, am retired and organizing shop projects. Have recently acquired 1/3rd (giant) scale Sopwith Pup kit but before beginning the build am undertaking "homework" and "research" phase. With reference to the Wingnuts Sopwith Pup kit series introduced 5+ years ago I realize they are unavailable and out of production. However, I am attempting to locate any source that may know the whereabouts of a complete wood Sopwith Pup RNAS kit that could be liberated from a top shelf, dark closet, or from under the bed. I have found 1 or 2 possibilities on the general internet but would prefer to pose this question to the closed Kitmaker.net membership. The kit is certainly difficult to find, but in advance I thank those who may contact me about this. Buzz

I believe WNW is releasing this kit again in there special boxings . I pick up the Albatros D.V Red Baron Edition . It could already be out . Have you looked on their web site .

Wheels and Wings in Toronto carry WNW kit they might have one in stock . You won't find it on there web site . They don't have listings of what they have . I call them and if they have what I'm looking I place an order . Pick up a few already and hassle free . They are a great shop to deal with .

Thank you - I appreciate the lead - I'll check that out. Also, would there be anyone, or a kit shop that has a Hasegawa 1/8th scale 'Museum Series' Camel F.1 wooden kit available for sale in Canada or the U.K.? As of today I have found only 1 kit available from Japan but if one or both of these kits could be found closer to home [and less shipping] that would be great. So actually, those are still in my 'search for' basket. Thanks again members.
