  1. I came accross this history some years ago, didn't hear from it before. Best is to read some article like the following here : https://www.caribbeanaircrew-ww2.com/ Hope it helps, I know the choice of figure is non standard, but it's an opportunity to do something different Norbert
  2. Hello ! For a change to modern figures, we did a RAF Caribbean pilot, smoking his pipe : Cheers Norbert
  3. Hello ! We made a second version of our US Navy female fighter pilot standing 2, with some small modifications : - right hand moved to match the boarding ladder side, gloves are now on. - left arm moved upward accordingly - visor down cheers Norbert
  4. Hello ! As a switch from US Navy thematic, here we have a new vitage civilian, 20s to50s era, with leather vest and a leather case. Could be for exemple a merchant (with a heavy weathered model behind) or a prewar ingeneer... Wish you all the best ! Norbert
  5. The Jaguar was indeed Song's work, but he made it at the time he was by Trumpeter. So it is a Trumpeter design, not KH. I think the main reason Song stoped was because a lot of people were speaking bad about his company, and that even much more in Asia and in China as we find in our forums. In addition, in the last mounths, when he was bringing out a new 1/48 plane, he has to face GWH or Meng or Kinetic or Minibase doing the same, which divides the market. OK, his kits were not perfect, but I was personnaly happy with a lot of these. He also said he has one year or sales in his inventory, so there was probably also some financial issues. I hope somewhat he will come back, was prety happy with some of his subjects.
  6. Hello ! I'm back to the US carrier with a female fighter pilot checking her plane : Cheers Norbert
  7. Hello, the next figure is again a french pilot, one will say short before retirement...or a high ranking officer... cheers Norbert
  8. Nice start on this one ! As it seems to be still possible, it may be better to close the additionals air intakes (top and bottom) as they usualy only open when the engine is running.
  9. Hello, next Reedoak figureis a 80s - 90s era US Navy shooter, positionned port side, with the life preserver of this time. here the CAD : and the figure : Cheers Norbert
  10. I thought plastic is now streng Verboten in Germany...out of kits, of course !
  11. hello ! As we did a helmet with interior for our last lady, here is the US navy HGU-68 helmet alone, with his interior, of course. cheers Norbert
  12. Hi ! so we start the new year with a US navy female pilot, standing : cheers Norbert
  13. Hi Reedoak made a cold war era russian civilian truck driver, that can be used on the side of an Ural or Kamaz truck, on an airfield. Available in multiple scales, as usual. Cheers Norbert
  14. Hi, Hope you all had a nice day In addition to the Tomcat pilots of the 81 à 89s time frame, here are the versions for the next years : 89 to 98 approximatively, new HGU-55 helmet, which is still equiped with the old style cast bayonet receiver 98 to 2004 approximatively, the HGU-55 has now the lightweight bayonet receiver Yes, it is not a big difference... cheers Norbert
  15. Hi all I usualy invoice euro 10.78 tracked small pack postal service (not collissimo), but have to admit you need a professional account to get it. But yes, last price increase was 10 %
  16. Hi The version of our US Navy standing pilot #2 is now ready, this time with visor up : on the right on the last picture cheers Norbert
  17. Hoping to have my model before christmas too. Concerning the printing layers, they seem barely perceptible. Instead of sanding, you may fill the lines as I do with the figures : http://reedoak.com/how-to-prepare-reedoak-3d-printed-figure-for-paint/ However, it needs a bit of practice, you may train on the printing blocks before Cheers Norbert
  18. Hello ! The version of the modern US Navy standing pilot #2, this time without leg garters, is now ready too. So the same figure, visor down, pulling gloves, open survival vest, but no ejection seat leg straps Cheers Norbert
  19. Hi we decided to offer the modern US navy wheel chocks we designed a long time ago, as I wanted some in 1/18 scale for myself, and they can also be usefull for some 1/35 helicopter models In addition, we took the opportunity to offer them in other scales, like 1/32. in 1/18 : in 1/35 : Cheers Norbert
  20. Hi We made a second standing modern US Navy fighter pilot, this time with open survival vest. The visor down version with leg garters is ready, but we will make also other versions without leg garters and visor up. So, that's the guy on the left on the picture : I will show the other versions when they come cheers Norbert
  21. Being a manufacturer myself, I understant his feeling. But what will you do with the detail parts CAD when you do not have the major components ? sadly, the option today is to buy the kit, make ourself from the worst kit parts the CAD work that already exist, and print it much finer, and/or rebuild in scratch. Naturaly, the best option would be to get the detail parts in acceptable resolution with the kit
  22. I think the FDM is a good solution for strong and big parts, even if it requires a lot of filling and sanding. A solution would be to have access to the CAD for the smaller parts in addition, in order to print them on a phrozen or elego printer at much higher resolution
  23. a 1/32 Jeep...hmmm, my neighbor has one, maybe I start to scan it... Then a tank truck...and if it all works, a plane that goes together, as small as possible, will say a P-51...
