  1. Hello Wanted to give a quick update; gearing up to send out the remaining pre-orders shortly. You will receive an email with tracking information at the time it ships. I am very pleased with the response I have received - this is a very popular conversion indeed! Note -- RESIN2detail will not be accepting any additional pre-orders at this time; official launch coming soon. Thank you to all who have placed their pre-order prior to this time. Cheers Brian
  2. Thank you, Brady - will keep an eye out for the RamJet info :-) Talk soon
  3. Thank you all for your kind words of support -- I am working hard on the preorders and instruction manual and will post updates as soon as they're available Bye for now ... Brian
  4. Brady, Hi - My apologies for not replying sooner; I am normally much better about responding. Truth be told, my wife suffered a medical emergency approx. 2 weeks ago which put me behind. She is doing much better now; I am a one-man shop at the moment, so I was stretched thin. OK, Pre-ordering --> the price for the pre-ordered kit is $69.99 USD plus $6.99 USPS Priority Mail shipping/ $22.00 International 1st class package. (Orders received after the official go-live date in early May will reflect the projected retail price of $84.99. plus shipping). Monies should be sent to the following PayPal address --> peddlerofnj@yahoo.com. The expected dispatch date for this wave of pre-orders is the last week of April. Please feel free to reach out to me directly at the following email address --> peddlerofnj@yahoo.com. My WordPress site is having some issues with the "contact us" plugin; as it is not sending these inquiries directly to my mailbox. Many thanks, Brian
  5. Yup - I release the M40 cluster bombs mid-last year, and the "singlets" or individual "bomblets" if you will, just about a week ago!
  6. Shameless plug for the Weaver M1 lift which was often seen with the M5 to offload bombs and roll under the belly of the B-17 ;-) http://resin2detail.com/product/ac32015
  7. Thank you RoyBoy - I will certainly add this to the list to look into! Brian
  8. H- Dutik The only photos of the MkII cart that I have been able to locate showing it being used on a tarmac, have been in the PTO. It was smaller and more nimble - could be towed by smaller tractors. The M5 cart on the other hand, was a hefty piece of equipment with a much higher bomb load capacity -- mainly used to service B-17s and B-24s (500 and 1000 pounders). So the MK II was more commonly used to arm fighter-bombers like the P-38 / P-47 / P-51 I believe.

  10. Hey Dennis - Thank you so much! I would like to; I am working through some quarterscale B-17 and B-29 conversions now so possibly in the new year. One major obstacle that I am faced with on the HK kit is the cost and availability of the kit itself. A 3D scan of the kit parts would be crucial for a snug fit contour-wise.
  11. Thank you everyone -- happy you like! Anthony - the 1/32 R-2600 is nearly all molded up -- I will add a new topic here when it is for sale. Brian
  12. The wait is over! For those looking to construct a 1/32 USAAF airfield diorama, you must take a close look at R2D's latest offering. This exquisitely detailed little lift features 10 highly-detailed parts and full instruction guide. The swivel handle is fully poseable in the “at use†or “rest†positions. With minimal work, the lift can be lowered into the un-raised position. Perfect for use with the HK B-17 model(s) and the B-25, among others. Available today for only $14.99 per set Please click HERE to be redirected to the R2D store for more details and to purchase Cheers!
