  1. I think this thread be stopped and totally new ones made as this is NO LONGER about a Tamiya 109 G-6........... well that is just my thoughts:)
  2. Hi Guys Not sure if all of you have got used to looking at my own area page i.e. Aerocraft Models but I think I have some really cool and useful new sets so here is a general look and from there you can follow links to my web pages. https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/forum/100-aerocraft-models/ cheers Ali
  3. Hi Guys Ok so here are some more pictures showing how this all works. Please note that the white plastic strut is just added to show the approximate angles when installed in the kit. Please go to the link below as I could not upload more pictures to LSP, I may need to resize them https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/avro-lancaster-undercarriage-set-for-the-hong-kong-model-kits
  4. Hi Guys Just for those that like the smaller scales as well. https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/eurofighter-typhoon-undercarriage-set https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/hawker-hunter-t-7-conversion-set-for-later-raf-aircraft-part-1 https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/hawker-hunter-t-7-conversion-set-for-later-raf-aircraft-part-2
  5. Hi Guys a new set for the large model, this is by far the biggest set yet, the kit parts have been completely re-engineered and details added, better and more detailed pictures to follow soon. https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/avro-lancaster-undercarriage-set-for-the-hong-kong-model-kits
  6. Hi Guys 2 new sets for the Stearman Pt-17, as I said on the Gladiator set, you have asked for wing struts so I have decided to try them out on these two releases for now, I certanly think that the PT-17 will benefit from them. https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/stearman-pt-17-undercarriage-set-for-icm-kits https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/stearman-pt-17-wing-strut-set-for-the-icm-kits
  7. Hi Guys Many have asked if I would do wing struts so I have taken a plunge at the first two sets for the Gladiator and the Stearman Pt-17, we shall see how these go. https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/gloster-gladiator-wing-strut-set-for-the-icm-kits
  8. Hi Dennis Sorry just seen this now, I know these are a long time waiting......there is a plan right now, involving 3D cad and printing for the masters, I will hopefully have more news if the system is working and proceeding in the next week to 10 days........ regards Ali ps see new releases.....you may like some brass u/c for your WIP Lancaster??
  9. It is a great kit, I am thinking of maybe trying it out for the training group build. As far as the undercarriage goes the main ones are similar in design to the Gladiator ones. Quite clever, but they are a little weak down at the axle, as is the tail wheel strut a little delicate, so I have sent these to get cast in brass. I am also going to see how the wing struts will cast in brass, will see how they turn out. Will keep you informed when they are ready. Ali
  10. Good idea BUT, dangerous waters to tread........and it is not very ethical either......I am not going down that road. I know where you are coming from Jennings BUT these days let us be honest most of these projects are more in that time frame of at least 2-3 years development, and to be honest HKM is not the most prolific modelling company and that is not a knock just the truth, as you say they are not a huge company. The HKM Meteor is not a good model and if they do a Phantom, it will be more detailed than the Meteor, no manufacturer is going to do a basic airframe
  11. Thanks Jennings It was not the Phantom that caused the company to fail, so that is a good thing. All what happened although tough at the time was a good thing for me in the end, and now I am pressing on with a different approach. This is the thing lots of guys would love a big British Phantom but it is just alluding us all. However I do wonder how many will really sell???? and at what price wether that be an injection kit or a conversion set???? In modern days a good conversion set that is fairly comprehensive with SOME decals say 3 options(and then you will not please everyone,
  12. You are quite correct. It was I that did a lot of work and dragged my wife to help take pictures and some basic dimensions all those years ago (I think it was more like 2013). With that Jennings announced that the HKM one was on the way.......so with that I just about trashed everything as I was really frustrated. Not to long after that I went bankrupt, and all the Alleycat products moved on to Alec Smith. Just over 2 years ago I started Aerocraft Models, this time I am financially stronger in that this is part time, I.e. I have a full time job that pays the essential bills. So all t
  13. https://forum.ww1aircraftmodels.com/index.php?topic=11367.0 Got this information off a link on Britmodeller as above, this could be exciting for many of you guys on this BIG BOYS modelling site enjoy Cheers Ali
  14. Hi Guys see my post here on page 27, I think this project has stalled for me, I do apologise cheers Ali
