well... that is the question... would there be enough demand to cover the extra expense and work?

Hmm... maybe we should put up a: will produce if we get X preorders?

Lars, I cannot say for others but I'll buy couple sets. I'm sure you will sell several sets once you figure out a way to reproduce them in resin. Hobby decals did a large decal sheet with dry transfer that wasn't cheap and now it's hard to find. So, there are modelers out there that are interested in IRIAF Ali-Cats.

We have decided to produce these in Resin instead :D

BUT I will need some help in producing the markings, so I will keep this thread alive

 

And it is a good place to let you know how the masters and the casting proceeds 

 

Thanks for the input!

The missiles arrived from shapeways today, ranging from cute in 1/72 to "are you really sure this is the right size" in 1/32. 

They are aftercuring in the window right now (some extra UV never hurt any STL printed stuff) before I clean and give them the first layer of primer tomorrow.

 

Pictures will be posted of each stage

 

(the HAWK is really really big in 1/32!)

Might I suggest not using a flat primer on them. They will have a bit of a rough finish if you do. I would use something with more gloss for a smoother finish.

can this missile be hanged up under the belly as well as Phoenixes (x4)? Pallets are the same in this case?

is the fixed-wing pylon the same as the one for the AIM-54?

could old '80s IRIAF/IIAF F-14s carry it as well?

They were only carried on the wing-phoenix pylon and was first used 1986 in the Iran-Iraq war, even today IRIAF fly with a mix of 4 Phoenix and 2 Hawk  or 2 Hawk and Sparrows
