Were on a design team and ask a question about a specific product before its release date, I would say 'no' as well.
they rarely respond to any questions one way or another, I think the point was the fact that they actually responded

I would say that the very fact tthat the forgeworld models are still available is a suggestion that there isn't a plastic one in the works. When the trygon, baneblade and shadowsword were done in plastic their resin counterparts dissapeared a couple of months before the plastic releases. If they are talkign about plastic thunderhawks for may then the forgeworld ones should have already vanished from their site.

The model's been around since 2008, so I doubt it's a Thunderhawk-related release. I'd say it was a flyer release, seeing as there are no Baneblades or Titans and lots of flyers.

The Thunder hawk is pictured with a turbo laser destruction which is one of the option for the FW kit, still stated in the blurb on FW site but not pictured in the current set of pictures on the site, but both pictures in IA Aeronautica have it.

Lends some credibility to the new Apocalypse roumours

Has anyone thought they may have just added the picture for shits and giggles? Look at all the other parting shots in WD and whether they actually have any link to what is released the next month - for instance last month was a picture of space wolves and tyranids, there isn't a single space wolf in this issue and nids are only in the battle report and it isn't even the right hive fleet.

I doubt they are going to make it really obvious what is coming out next month by doing something as silly as showing an image of what army may have new things for, it's a thunder hawk hooray it looks cool nothing more, in the words of Mr Grimwig from Oliver Twist - I will eat my hat if the thunderhawk is even in next month's WD

I don't recall a statement anywhere that there would be a release for it next month.
If there is a 6E Apocalypse, then, drumming up interest in things like a plastic Thunderhawk early might be what they're hoping to achieve. Like what was previously stated, no-one thought there would be a day with plastic Baneblade or Ork Stompa but those are now available. If a plastic Thunderhawk comes down the pipeline then I'll be happy. But, were this a parting shot of a Titan, then I'd be much more skeptical.

Could a variant of a T-Hawk be on the cards?, one that is not currently available at FW.

That way FW still produces it's own T-Hawks, while Citidel produces one of its own, just a thought.

Can't imagine at 500 quid (1k in Oz no doubt) a GW T'hawk will be a big seller and if they make it cheaper it kinda torpedos FW's kit.

Be willing to bet that the T'hawk will remain a FW, "for the veterans" only, kit.
