General Discussions / Year in Review & Looking Forward... Updated 180115
« on: January 06, 2018, 05:42:26 PM »

Last year had been a good year for Rubicon Models2017 had been a year of consolidation.  Together with the new Q4/17 releases which will ship next week, we have a total of 20 boxed products being released in 2017.  More importantly, we have concluded all our SdKfz 250/251 expansion sets and most of the M4 variants (except the M4A1) from our M4 Sherman Digital Library project.  We have also announced two new product lines, Scenic and Resin range, for 2018 releases.

2018 will be a year of expansion.  Following our success of Rubicon Models USA (RM/US) and her webstore for the dealer and direct sales support, we will be setting up a UK office shortly.  Like her USA counterpart, Rubicon Models UK (RM/UK) will have her own webstore and logistic support to serve customers in the EU region.  Besides serving our sales channels, we will set up a direct sales channel to handle products that cannot be sold through multi-tier sales network.  A separate announcement will be posted after our RM/UK office is up and running.

As for our design studio in Hong Kong, we are now taking in trainees and new equipment to help us to keep up with our work.  Diversification is the key to make our studio more robust and to establish ourselves as a product design powerhouse!

Only a few days into 2018, you have already seen us posted new updates on several awe-inspiring projects that we considered as game changers for the industry.  We will continue to refine our design skills and make even better products for years to come!  Please continue to support us with feedback and comments, and more importantly... buy more!

Thanks and stay tuned!

General Discussions / Another first in 1/56 scale...
« on: December 22, 2017, 01:39:32 PM »
This is a simple looking sprue with some pleasant surprises!

For the technically minded, we are applying multi-slide techniques to this sprue producing fine details (in this case, rivets) on all three sides of this upper hull piece. Another first in 1/56 scale! This paves way for us to do smaller vehicles with complicated details as a single piece component instead of multiple smaller parts. Can't wait to try out this breakthrough technique again on a new project next year!

This is our 3rd Christmas seasons greetings... that means we are entering our 3rd year of business after our initial Nov 14 releases!
So far, we have released a total of 48 plastic kits, and at the beginning of Jan 18, we will make the grand total to be 54 kits!

Thank you everyone for the advice and support on this forum. We will continue to make our products better day-by-day, month-by-month, and year-to-year!

Have a festive holiday!

General Discussions / Moulds in the Making... 171207
« on: December 07, 2017, 02:03:21 PM »
For those who might want to have a glimpse of how our plastic sprues are made, here are some pictures of our moulds in the making! 

It takes months to get to this stage... after that, more QC work had to be done to make sure the two parts of the mould are matched seamlessly with all the details matched exactly like the original design.  There are no shortcuts to quality mould making, nothing can be rushed!  Therefore, don't ask why a particular product is not released yet!

Guess what this is?
