Perhaps it was fitting that 100 years after the start of the Great War, a new modelmaker would toss its’ ‘hat in the ring’, pardon the pun. Newcomer Wings of the Great War has announced plans to develop an extensive range of 1:72 scale World War I-inspired aircraft, crafted in resin and bearing all of the hallmark detail that went into these “wooden wonders-of-the-sky.”
Each will come with a fully articulated display stand that allows for full freedom-of-movement so the collector can display each aircraft in multiple poses. According to the sales literature, no more than 500 pieces of each aircraft will be built, making them highly coveted collectables in the years-to-come. The first four aircraft are slated to take to the sky this October.
