This one was obviously intended to be a movie prop.  The HK one?

Hi Brian:

I had coffee this morning with Mike Belcher of Belcher Bits.  Mike makes decals and resin items for the 1/32 Lancaster.

He saw the Wingnuts Lancaster sprues at the IPMS Nationals in Chattanooga. His comment is that it will be better than the HK version.

Just take the option I'm thinking about: they're releasing a forward fuselage/cockpit kit as well.
With warm regards from Whanganui, New Zealand

Hobbyists are mourning the demise of Sir Peter Jackson's Wingnut Wings World War 1 model-making company.

But despite obituaries being written on hobbyist websites, the company has remained silent on its future, and there was no indication on the company's website that its employees had lost their jobs.

"The company has shut down," former Wingnut artist Malcolm Laird confirmed.
