    Default In the near future...

    From the grape vine... the O/400 together with the Zeppelin Staaken has finished prototyping and will be released soon, in the next WW1 release. Nieuport 11, together with Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter, are in the next series of fighters and two-seaters, soon afterward.

    Thanks Peter.
    That is good news and should raise the spirits no end.
    Talking of spirits.

    Good news for the WWI folks. Hope they can do more for the WWII folks that are waiting for those planes.

    thanks for that!!! ever since flying the mighty staaken at origins this year ive been looking into getting a kit for a project but so far, it looks like it would be beyond my meager resources. i eagerly await both these giants!

    The bombers will be really big models but it is good news.

    They are very fun to fly and defend, but take a LOT of room to manouver. I once flew 3 Ca 4's in formation - a bit too tight of a formation at that!

    I think Peter is talking about Ares releases. I may, of course, be wrong. Looking forward to these, though I am very happy with my N11 in FUD from Shapeways( not so much the WSF model). But the N11 maneuver decks will be most welcomed. Have not yet played a scen with a big bomber, so these will be nice, and hopefully fun. As an aside Peter, any rumors on where the series 3 reprint would show up in that schedule?

    you arent joking there as i learned at origins. at the critical way point to turn to port i took damage with a no turn to port restriction. aaaarrrghhhhhh!!!!! i faced the choice of either continuing straight and flying into a balloon or turning starboard and circling back around. i chose the latter (barely missing the balloon) and made it about 55% of the way back around before the scenario ran out of time. i felt like a semi trailer trying to turn around in a small parking lot lol .

    This is ARES, as the line is from the Yahoo WoG group, quoted from the man himself. I have heard nothing about series 3 reprints yet.

    Bloody good news! The only thing is how to store them together with other minis and "minis"

    Any news about German baloons?
