Thomas Gunn Miniatures: Warbirds

With news of their latest wooden Warbirds, here's Vicki from TGM, together with a few pictures!

Dear All

We are very pleased to announce the release of 3 new iconic wooden warbirds
in 1/30 scale only available direct from Thomas Gunn.

Wings of War 012

The Henschel 123 started off as a dive bomber in the Spanish Civil War and
was the first aircraft flown by Adolf Galland during his career in combat
missions over Spain.

Eventually the HS 123 was replaced in most frontline units by the JU 87
Stuka. However because of the rugged design and reliability of the HS 123,
it was kept in service until 1944 and was used in a variety of roles
including ground attack, reconnaissance and as a glider tug.

Our 'green coloured' version is probably one of the most famous and was
flown by Hauptman Josef Menapace who flew over 700 combat missions, most of
them in the HS123 before being killed in action in Russia in 1943. Menapace
was awarded the Knights Cross in 1942 after flying 650 combat missions.
Our model comes with a choice of the 2 figures from Luft 009 A or B, just
let us know at time of purchase whether you prefer the figures in blue or
tropical uniforms.

Limited to 12 pieces worldwide and priced at $499 each plus postage and

Comes with full interior including pilots seat with seat belts, joy stick
and beautifully detailed dash board.

Wings of War 011

One of the major reasons for keeping the HS123 in operational service even
though it had been superseded by faster monoplane aircraft, was its ability
to operate under the most extreme conditions. Our second HS123 comes in a
gritty Eastern front winter camouflage scheme and looks every bit under the
weather as the cold takes its toll on men and machines.

Comes with a choice of either the A or B version of LUFT 009 figure set,
however the A version figures might look more appropriate may I suggest for
this version!

Once again limited to 12 in number worldwide and priced at $499 plus P&P.

Wings of War 010

Our third Rumpler comes in a stunning doped linen colour finish and is our
best looking and detailed Rumpler to date. We have added pilots seat belts,
dashboard and joy stick to this version along with some very neat looking
subtle weathering.

This colour scheme suitable for both Western and Middle Eastern fronts and
will quite happily sit on an airfield dio in France or Palestine!
This aircraft comes with the 2 figures from GW017 Workshop set which will
only enhance your display even more.

Limited to 12 in number worldwide and priced at $499 plus P&P.

Thats it for now folks, we have more of these beautiful looking aircraft in
the pipeline and I am hoping that next month we will have some more for your
viewing and buying pleasure. Please note that all the other figures and
vehicles pictured in our attached photos are for scale purposes only and are
not included with the aircraft, unless mentioned as part of the sales
particulars. If a particular set of figures is not available we reserve the
right to offer a alternative set from others in stock at the time of

I will be adding more photos on our website later on,
please feel free to take a look or if you want to order, drop me an email at
your earliest convenience.
