  1. All looks good and interesting, one thing to decide or to get some input on. For the castor wheels it looks as if you can position them on the ball joint area to slightly different angles, as these would need to be cast in one piece, should the all be inline/ straight with the castor wheel strut, or should I angle them all slightly differently off line as it were to add interest? I think the later myself, if somebody is going to pose all streamlined with covers over the wheels they will not need the brass wheel set! Any way challenge accepted Mike, so get that parcel to me.......... best order myself a kit now.
  2. Thanks for the comments and likes. I meant to add the proposed first two decal options, so here they are, there will be two initial boxes, one with RAF and one with RN options. Note all the options shown in grey shades are silver overall, with the exception of the one that has a replacement tail section. Note many of the kit decals will be used for the schemes.
  3. Hi Guys Here are some progress pictures on the T.7 set. The set is taking longer than anticipated, but I am trying to get it as good as possible. I am hoping to release it end of June, but there are still quite a few things still to get done. NO PRICE confirmed as yet. Proposed two box offerings to be released initially a RAF and a RN set, see decal options, the decals will be going to the printers in the next week or so. Note seats are only basic at present so I can get an idea for fit etc. Also other details still to be added or changed. Note it is a SMALL bore exhaust with the required brake housing. I will be developing other versions in the next few months.

  9. Hi Yes work in progress along with a few other potentially useful parts, at the moment there are possibly 2 sets being developed. Hope to be able to share more information on them in about a week. These two sets will be able to be used on either single seat Hunters and on the 2 seat Hunter that I have under development......The 2 seater is taking a little longer but I promise it is coming together I hope to have some pictures available and it on show at the show in Perth (Scotland) on the 27/28 th April. As for exact release date and price those are still to be determined. cheers Ali
  10. Latest up date Hunter masters are progressing well, decals are currently being drawn for the first two box options, there will be a few releases of this set in a few different guises. I hope to have some pictures and more information up in the next two weeks. I need to get back to the high altitude Wellington, but I can say that I and Franta of DK Decals have been working together on the project and I can tell you that he has already drawn three schemes all quite different, that will be placed on a various decal sheet in the near future. Lastly I have and I am still working on some replacement turrets for the Hobby Boss B-24 Liberator. These are proving to be a lot more difficult than would first appear, and I have already done and discarded a few basic masters already. It is not only just how to make the master but then and or also how to cast it. I need to get the master good, and figure the assembly of it all to enable the clear domes to be cast and then how to integrate the, gun slots and the 'bulged' metal sections as separate parts. Before anybody asks yes I do have the Hasegawa / Eduard 1/72 scale kits and am trying to use those as a basic design pattern, BUT it is a lot more tricky when upscaling it all and designing it all to work with silicone moulds and resin. The other tricky part is the clear resin, to keep that part short and simple I have been testing and working with some new clear, and it is yielding varied results but I am getting better with it and I really need a break through with it as ALL of the above projects require it to work. So please be patient but for now you know what I am working on, however I hasten to add this is all in my 'spare' time after the day job............ cheers Ali
  11. Note to self I must get one of these as soon as they are readily available, looks great, Ali
  12. Well as others have said.................VERY VERY happy, bring them on, yes it will be over a few years, but at last we are really starting to get some great Spitfires that we know will be good models. Ali

  14. Thanks guys for all the orders, many of you would have been notified your orders are on the way. For the ones that have not been notified as yet fear not yours will be sent soon, when the next batch is delivered from the casters, should be within the next week. Nice new picture of actual parts cast in brass  cheers Ali
