  1. Hi Guys I have a new set of brass undercarriage in production for the Airfix Spitfire Mk.XIV, please see my website https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/spitfire-mk-xiv-upgraded-undercarriage-set-airfix cheers Ali
  2. Hi Guys I have a new set of brass undercarriage in production for the MiniArt Triebflugel, please see my website https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/miniart-focke-wulf-triebflugel-brass-undercarriage cheers Ali
  3. Hi Guys I hope that these should please many of you there are some new sets in production for the BIG CAT.......... Brass undercarriage set and doors for the Hellcat https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/airfix-hellcat-brass-undercarriage-and-wheel-doors Three different tyre options for the Hellcat https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/airfix-hellcat-tyres-cross-hatch-type https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/airfix-hellcat-tyres-straight-running-tread https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/airfix-hellcat-tyres-cruciform-block-pattern cheers Ali
  4. Hi Guys Please refer back to some basic pictures from a few months ago, the set has developed a lot since then. BUT basically the following is all taken into consideration There is a new exhaust section as can be seen, this is SMALL BORE, with the brake housing as can be seen, the exhaust diameter that Airfix are using for their future release Mk.4 has been used and the brake housing detail has been added, so it will be a simple drop in part. As for export 2 seat versions and OR any others that may have used the later engines then yes the current kit rear end parts can and will have to be used. There will be a good cockpit representation, with a fair amount of detail, including seats etc. There will be a two part resin canopy. I hope to post some new pictures soon and as soon as I happy with the product I will start a pre-order system, and although the project is delayed, it will be happening as soon as possible for that to be achieved.
  5. Thanks for a few suggestions, I may still consider some of these, but I am really looking for T.7 based (any two seat version to go with the conversion set) decal ideas for foreign users. Ali
  6. Hi Guys Sorry for the delay.....BUT progress is being made, I even have the decals to hand, they look really good. I do not want to give further promises as to exactly when it will be ready BUT as soon as I am happy with everything I will start the pre-sale ordering process and there will be a discount offered on the pre-sales. I am pushing hard to get the project over the line as I have lots invested into it, time and money so the sooner the better but I want to have it as GOOD as I can make it, so keep a watch out over the next week or two for further announcements, and pictures. As you know I have two different decal sheets done as of now, and I have more in the works for British aircraft......HOWEVER I am looking for suggestions for foreign user schemes. I will make it worth while to the guys that assist me with some ideas, BUT the catch is I need help with details, like good pictures / references and sizes of the markings i.e. either 1 to 1 or scale sizes of roundels and fonts etc. IF good clear pictures are provided then very close estimates can be made for sizing but as you know the more and clearer the information the better. If you have information please in the first instance send me a PM, and I will confirm and email address to send information to, however for those that know my email address, send the information over. Obviously any foreign decal options produced will more than likely be very late 2019 or into the first part or 2020. cheers Ali
  7. Hi Guys This is a brass cast undercarriage set for the new Amusing Hobby kit These parts are the same as the superb kit parts but they are far more robust, for parts that always seem to get broken, when handling models. Note a small brass rod is supplied to make an axle for the main centre wheel. Special thanks to Mike Williams of Britmodeller (the BOSS) for suggesting these to me and for lending me his kit parts in advance to get this set out as soon as possible. Mike also added some detail to the main wheel, this is 'subjective' however there is no clear or 100% detail for this aircraft SO he just did it!!! The castor wheel yokes are exceptionally fragile so this should sort that problem with ease and they are superbly cast. Dash over to get your set now https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/focke-wulf-triebflugel-brass-undercarriage

  9. A further update, pattern progress has not progressed much but I have busy getting the actual decal sheets prepared and they are now off to the printers. Once I know the turn around time on those that will assist in getting the set finalised. Shown below are the two decal options that will be available for the first two releases, as can be seen the wing underside serial decals have all be separated to fit onto open undercarriage.
  10. Hi Guys Thanks for the great comments I am glad that you are happy and I look forward to seeing completed pictures of your models. Ali
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Hi Guys see new sets here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235054545-new-hunter-sets-for-the-airfix-kit/
