So... what is coming for Q2/18?


Showcase & Gallery / Airfix Model World - May 18 (issue 90)
« on: April 21, 2018, 11:41:34 PM »
Airfix holds a unique appeal for me and has been an important part of my childhood. The May 2018 (Issue 90) of Airfix Model World featured Steve Perry "Best-in-Show" from the South Cheshire show. The magazine wrote, "...what could be achieved from wargaming kits, using Rubicon's 1/56 vehicles and figures to recreate a North African scene of Erwin Rommel and his Afrika Korps preparing for battle".

Three years of teamwork had propelled and established Rubicon Models into the 1/56 scale wargaming and military modelling market worldwide. We even find our way into the hard-to-penetrate Japanese market a year ago! We are still young and eager to do better for years to come...



No more complaints... last of the April Fools mystery unveiled!
Project for an LRDG Chevrolet 30cwt truck had begun!

Please check for details and omissions so that we can revise it before sending the truck for 3d prototyping.  Much appreciated!

Apart from our April Fool tease, this is going to be a quick and simple kit with minimal options.  Our plan is to release a few plastic kits without options or variants to cut down on development time.  These vehicles don't have many variants historically in the first place.

Rubicon Models will be releasing a new range of vehicle enhancing products, the Tiger I track links is one of them. Highly detailed and produced in quality resin, these will be optional products to replace the original plastic tracks to further enhance the look of your model kit. More to come!


Rubicon Models is announcing a new product series focused on soldiers of World War Two - "WW2 Soldiers".

Not for everyone, these are hand-painted 60mm (1/30 scale) collectible limited-edition metal figures. Each is highly detailed and come packaged in a gift box and certificate. We will only produce figures of 200 in a single batch, once gone we will not reproduce them anymore!

We will post more info about this new series over the coming weeks and will be available on our existing US webstore and upcoming new UK webstore soon.
