Will RM/UK have a presence at UK and the rest of Europe shows?

Of course, we are already participating in local UK weekend shows even before the official RM/UK registration.  We will continue to show our presence in more shows across Europe!

This is an announcement... the official incorporation of “Rubicon Models UK Ltd”. RM/UK, in short, will be responsible for the sales and marketing of our products in the EU as well as in the UK. RM/UK will also operate an online webstore as well as a warehouse to supply products to our EU/UK customers. Further information about how RM/UK operate will be announced at a later date. Stay tuned.

The SdKfz 260/261 expansion kit is a simple 2 sprue kit (figure size version) in a blister pack.  It should be released together with the SdKfz 222/223 kit if production schedule is on time.  ;)

How are the mould changes going on the base kit?

The final changes had been completed and we are now in the final phase of approving the moulds. We are also working on the assembly instruction and decal set as well.

Enjoy!

A much-needed progress update on the crew for the Kettenkrad.  The delay is due to the long queue and priority issues with figure mould making... Crew TS1 plastic is finally upon us!



























Enjoy!

We can't tell you right now... not because it is a secret, but the Chinese New Year holiday always give us surprises!  We might be able to give you some more info after the holidays, which is the last week of February.  :-\

Following the T34 Calliope MRL from yesterday is our resin deep wading trunk for all M4 variants. All trunks have interior details so that you can model them with -or- without the trunk itself! Enjoy!













Enjoy!

So the barrel is an additional part on the early variant?

Correct, that's because the mounting ring is on the gun barrel, and getting the ring onto the existing plastic barrel will look awkward.

Our M4 Sherman add-on resin kit - The T34 Calliope Tank Mounted Multiple Rocket Launcher (MRL). The T34 comes with two choices - early and late production variants. It also comes with a hole drilling fixture for the turret as well.

If you looked at the T34 closely, you will find our resin design integrate seamlessly with our plastic kit. Quality & detail is our priority when it comes to our "Rubicon Models" name!











Enjoy!

Making good plastic figures need experience, particularly with multi-pose ones; otherwise, they will look terrible.  Making quality metal figures will give us the experience in many aspects of sculpting and production... In the end, will enable us to produce a high standard plastic figure set for each nation.  At least, that is the plan... ;)

In the meantime, we will continue to release PLASTIC figures in blister packs in parallel with our metal figure releases.  With metal figures, we are able to UPGRADE their sculpt details and poses when we do recasts, that's an advantage over their plastic counterparts.

I would classify them more as firing and advancing (or running).

Should be running... corrected.


So are the production ones going to be in metal or are these just samples?

These are pewter and are production samples.  Will be the same as the commercially available ones!
