HobbyZone Aircraft Building Jig and other news...

Recommended Posts

The HobbyZone Plane Stand (building jig) shipment is now inbound and should be here early next week. As promised, we'll have an introductory special - the first ten stands (one per person) will sell at $49.95 plus shipping, after that, they will be available at their regular price of $64.95 plus shipping. Thank you for your patience! Note: We're told by the factory that HobbyZone USA will be the exclusive seller of the Plane Stand for the foreseeable future. If you live outside the US, email me directly at sales@hobbyzone.biz and we'll see what we can do to support you.

We're expecting the final shipment from Attack Squadron in the next few weeks, this will have the C-130E/H engines, C-130J engines, C-130 flaps, and C-130 wheels in both 1/48 and 1/72 for the Italeri and Testors kits. No word from Arma Hobby if they've had a buyer for the Attack Squadron molds, so this may be the final opportunity to buy a set. We also have the 1/48 SBD dive flaps, 1/48 BRU-57 cVER, and 1/48 GBU-54 reorder as well. Finally, we've picked up a few of the Attack Squadron kits: 1/48 Grumman F2F, 1/48 MQ-8B Firescout, and 1/72 MQ-8B and MQ-8C Firescouts.

Res/Kit has released some new sets and we're adding some additional sets from their line-up including (all 1/48): Su-17/22 wheels, MiG-25 wheels, MiG-31 wheels, UH-34/Wessex wheels w/floatation (we already have the UH-34 land-based wheels), Matra 155 rocket pods, GBU-12 LGB, and Durandal bombs.

For those of you with the Trumpeter or Revell 1/32 MiG-29 Fulcrum A or MiG-29UB Fulcrum C kits, we have the new Begemot 1/32 MiG-29 family airframe and weapons stencils set due in next week.

It looks nice and solid, which is sadly not a feature of the JH Models stand that I have.



I've tried several of the flimsy laser-cut jigs over the years and never had much use for them. This is based upon one that I had over 30 years ago made by a local member of our IPMS club, but much lighter and more flexible. The photo above is a prototype, I'll have images and building tips for the production model shortly. The one above doesn't have the scale in the nose side of the base (the production model does) and there is foam padding in the holding surfaces that I didn't install on this prototype.
