Unique opportunity 1/32 Andover C1

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

There is a chap in Japan called Mr Toshihiko Shimizu (One Man Model) who is producing 1/72 and 1/48 HS748 and Andover 3D printed kits.

 

I know a couple of people who have already ordered his kits, and although extra work is involved in sanding and preparing the surface the kit is very good and incredibly accurate in shape and 'look/feel' of the real airframe.  I asked him if he would make me an Andover C1 (that is currently in design, several HS 748's in various guises are already produced and sold) in 1/32 scale, he replied no he dosent do that scale, people wont want one in 1/32 etc. 

 

Anyway he has finally come back to me and said yes he would make some design tweaks etc and print me one. He thinks the surface detail will come out better than the smaller kits due to the level of detail he is putting into the design.  I asked him if he might be interested in doing a couple if anyone else is interested when I get one done for me.  he has agreed to do a bigger print run at the same time if anyone else wants one and will reduce the price if more than one is ordered.

 

He is going to sell me one for 36000 Yen, pretty sure that includes shipping.(approx. 327USD).  Here is a link to his FB page so you can see his who he is

Here are a few images of his CAD

Anyway, let me know if you are definitely interested.  This wont be an easy kit, but it will be a great starting point for those who want one. Cant see anyone else doing one of these so might be our only opportunity to get one.

 

Please PM me if keen to have one done

 

Kev and team, I wasn't sure this was the right place to post the possibility of a 1/32 Kit possible availability.  Just wanted fellow LSP'ers to know and have the opportunity rather than keep it to myself

 

Cheers Anthony

Mmm I’m tempted by that. I know nothing about it and I’m not on Faceache. Any reviews of what has been made to date that we can view. 3600yen is about £251 in Brexit money.

Me too choose not to use farcebook.  Might be tempted for thatkind of money if delivery is somewhere near end of Q2 (may or june).

Hi guys

 

There is a chap building the HS 748 here

Here is a pic off his FB page of 748 parts

Thierry, he has done (or re-doing to make more accurate) his YS-11 kit.

 

This is as I understand it a one-off print run  and he will be back to his usual stuff.  Also remember it's not a kit for a beginner.

 

Mike, 69000 for 2 kits and a more of a reduction if he gets more orders.  I don't think they will be ready for printing for a month or 2.

 

Cheers Anthony
