While updating our work schedule records... To our surprises, we actually have SIXTEEN active projects on the mould making queue, not counting those on the Drawing Board. That's over 40 plastic injection moulds in the making!

« on: October 14, 2017, 01:59:20 PM »
This is a very nice diorama created by our talented Steve Perry.  The diorama is based the T34/85 (by the name of Stompie) located on Old Kent Road, South London.

For more stories about this tank, you can use the slider on street view to see the change through the months:

General Discussions / A Change of Colour!
« on: September 06, 2017, 07:48:24 PM »
A change of colour is in force for our more mature customers... easier on the eyes during kit assembly!
This comes into effect starting from our Q3/17 releases!



Enjoy!

Work In Progress / SdKfz 173 Jagdpanther - 3D Prototype 170918
« on: September 02, 2017, 11:25:33 AM »
Welcome to our Jagdpanther project.

The original teaser was moved to "General Discussion".  This will be a new topic on the Jagdpanther project.

This project is based on our existing Panthers (280014 & 280015) with further enhancements to the existing drawings.  We have basically:
- added details to the front tracks
- provides additional rear exhaust options

We then add two Jagdpanther hulls to represent early, mid, and late production variants with three different gun shields and mantlets, also choice of muzzle brake as well.
















Enjoy!

Most of you already know we are redoing some of the moulds to improve the overall quality of each kit.  These changes might not be reflected on our current kits on the market until a later date, but we are continuing to do so as we see fit.

While working on the Panther tracks, we had found an interesting problem - which side is up and which side is down?

After searching on the net and reading reference books for more historical data and pictures; seems like both are true... any comments from our b&n counters?

Work In Progress / Neucraft Resin - PzKpfw 38H 735(f) 170906
« on: July 18, 2017, 04:57:33 PM »
We have finally had the chance to rework the resin sculpts we purchased
from Neucraft earlier.  Most of the work done are cosmetic and some are
structural to simplify production.  Will now send them off to 3D print and
then to our mould maker for duplication.







Enjoy!
