90 Gallon Tanks for our 1/32 Tempest model. The pylons are like the original made of clear plastic. The parting plane of the tank parts is horizontal to preserve the filler caps detail.

M29 Weasel - CMK resin kit no. 8049 in 1/48 unveiled

Image
CMK offer you an all-resin model of M29 Weasel tracked vehicle in two scales. Besides the 1/72 model, there is also model no.8049 in 1/48 scale. Both models have been designed using a CAD and the master patterns were produced on a 3D printer. In a standard CMK box of the 1/48 Weasel you will find couple of resin casting blocks with all the model´s parts, a PE fret and a decal sheet for two US vehicles. Two page instruction sheet shows details of the assembly and camouflages.    The assembly itself is fairly straightforward. On the main body only the resin seats, control levers and some other tiny details are to be attached. The PE parts to be used for the model is the front radiator grille and the windscreen frame. The latter were in fact quite often removed in field conditions.
   On photos below the result of such a build is shown. The model has been built straight out of box, the only improvements are some handles being made of a piece of wire, slight shape correction…

Special Armour SA72015 A-Stoffanhänger 1/72 scale

Image
The A-Stoffanhänger “Liquid Oxygen Tank for V2 Rocket” will be our next model in the Special Armour range of kits that are injected to metal moulds. As the name suggests, it is a fuel tank for the V2 rocket (models SA72003 V2 Rocket and SA72014 V2 Prototypes). So, as you already can transport your V2 models or erect them on the launching platform (models Special Armour: SS-100 Gigant tractor, Vidalwagen and Meillerwagen transporters), you will be also able to fuel them up soon. As the rockets themselves, also the A-stoffanhängers were usualy tugged by the SS-100 Gigant tractors.
The model parts are laid out in two frames. On the basis of contemporary photos, we managed to reconstruct several marking and camouflages options used on the vehicle. The model will be available in early January.



Special Hobby SH48135 / SH48158 AF-2 Guardian 1/48 - armament and clear parts

Image
Every right anti-sub aircraft must carry armament to be able to fight against submarines. We did not forget about it when preparing our SH48135 / SH48158 AF-2 Guardian models. It will contain various under-wing armament as well as the underslung searchlight. The clear parts of the searchlight,canopy, fuselage windows and navigation, formation and signal lights are presented here already injected and we also show the other armament parts in form of 3D design renders.

F-86K 1/48 - first testhot of small parts frame

Image
Only a little while ago, I took one of the first testshots of the F-86K small parts frame from hands of our pressing-shop manager Mr.Karel. Production from these moulds has been just commenced. Not every part on this testhot is perfect, the shot itself is not clean, it really is only a testshot. But it already gives an idea of the final shape and quality of the small parts. I´d like to point out rather nice main wheels and cockpit sides. You can pre-order the model here if you like.
