  1. Interesting to note that the ejector seat looks remarkably like a Russian k-36 to my eye! john

    HI Scott Where there is a kit from my range duplicated in Injection I stop production and concentrate upon other things. I keep the patterns for a while before getting rid of them. The T-38 could be made from the F-5 nose I have n my range and adding Belcher bits conversion and an old Hasegawa kit. regards John

    Sea King GIIC fast revieuw 1/32 (1/38)

    To begin with I just want to get the shape right then we shall see what else can be added such as rotor head etc.clear will of course be included. There are various processes that may mean that a rotor head, wheels etc can be printed these days so if someone did drawings then that would be a great place to start. john

    If no F11F or FJ-4, then maybe...

    I totally understand that and would say that this day and age there is plenty of resin and etched that can be utilised to avoid scratch building stuff. In essence the time and effort some put into plastic injection kits would net them good results from a vac. This comment was meant to start some thought provocations on what people really want as opposed to what is available, if you really want it and it’s there as a vac form and you don’t want to build that, then surely this means that you can’t want it that much? Regards john

    You guys make me laugh as some of those models you wish for are available as vac forms from me. I don't understand that when the manufacturers state that they are not comercially viable that you continue to dismiss Vac forms as a voodo art or something. They are nothing more than basic shapes granted but this is where the skill of the modeller comes in. I get it that not everyone desired to spend the effort making these type of models but with some work they can look spectacular and you will have the model of the aircraft that you always wanted! I am afraid that it will be down to people like me to produce these limited market models and if you really want somehting then don't be afraid and have a go. I suspect that some of those who decry Vac forms have never tried them and are happy to be assemblers of plastic and resin accessories. I can tell you that from eperience that often some the the so called modern kits are just as awkward as vacs and more work. Some resin kits are really bad and some resin accessories just dont fit so the work you do to make them fit is not far off the level of work required to assemble a vac form. Please dont be blinkered by the comments of others and have a go you may end up with something that you really wanted.

    Sea King GIIC fast revieuw 1/32 (1/38)

    Ok Guys perhaps I can add to this thread having had both the new ray toy and the GIIC kit in my hands and compared the two. Despite the company telling me otherwise this GIIC model is as already stated in fact a copy of the New ray model. I bought one and was shocked when it arrived to find that it was well under scale and a copy. I paid a premium for the resin version and was determined to get to the bottom of it all. It appears that the resin model has been made from a modified copy of the plastic model. With the resin model in hand I found the plastic one on amazon and ordered it. I can confirm that the lumps and bumps are identical as tooo are the panel lines and reinforcing plates. Just about everything else is a slightly updated copy. Even the incorrect rotor head is copied! When I questioned the seller of the origin they stated that it was mastered by someone totally from scratch! I then asked about the scale and they told me that thier measuiements were based upon the overall length being inclusive of the rotor. This would make the dimensions closer. All reference including material from Sikorisky and Westland all had dimensions excluding the rotor. and this model and the New Ray toy come out as stated closer to 1/37 to 1/38. In essence I sold the Gicc kit and have started to master a 1/32 scale Sea King myself which I will hope to have progressed to vac forming soon. regards John

    Hi Scott I am still concentrating upon getting the old kits back into production before new stuff. I have a list of lots of things I would like to do ,however, running two businesses, building review models for magazines and family as well as a full time job tend to get in the way of each other. in short not for now I am afraid regards john

    Hi guys I have today released the following kits into my range, this has been a long time in the preparation and being able to reverse engineer parts to make new patterns which were never part of the set up I originally had. Suffice to say they are available now. i have to make a canopy for the bv-155 but by the time you read this I will hopefully have the pattern completed. so without further ado here goes firstly kit 66 BV-155 the high altitude interceptor which was built but I don’t believe it flew? Price is £30.00 and postage is at cost. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/123302534516 67 F-84 F that I know a few people have been asking for. This is the swept wing version of the f-84 and comes with the usual clear canopy and also the large tanks often seen under these aircraft. £30.00 and postage at cost. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/123302539342 68 RF-84f Thunderflash This is the swept wing photo recon version with the intakes in the wings. Again comes with clear canopy and also the large fuel tanks and pylons. £30.00 postage at cost. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/123302541079 Contact me directly or via the links above or here. regards john

    Italeri F-35A from the box

    Hi Jim it certainly is, I have a thing about tiger squadrons!
  15. Hi Guys its been a while but here is my last completion which of course is the Italeri 1/32 F-35A built straight from the box. I will only show the one image as it has just been published in Model Airplane International where I have an 8 page spread of the full build. Hope that you like her. I know the scheme is a bit of artistic licence but I waned something a little different to the normal Grey machines.
