    AIM 1/72 DC-7 B and C Resin Conversion Set

    The next conversions are for the Canadair Yukon, CL-44 and Argus, based on the Mach 2 Britannia kit. Would a similar thread to the DC-7 series be of interest?

    Delivery date If everything goes to plan, the DC-7/7B and the DC-7C conversion kits should be with Hannants by the end of February 2019

    Thanks to a modeller in Italy I have been able to correct some errors in the DC-7 and DC-7B instructions. Please download them again to get the current version - Here is the link again to the instructions for the DC-7 and DC-7B conversion:: http://www.aim72.co.uk/Pictures/DC-7 instructions-A5.pdf

    It is more of a building blocks approach - issue the first and then use parts from this in subsequent packs. Thus the non-radar nose was stand alone. The engines are common to the DC-7 and Canadair Argus, but the Argus is very much more complex, so the DC-7 comes next. It must be remembered that stereolithography is a very expensive process so each kit or pack funds the next. As an example, the resin used costs £160 per kg - not cheap! Anyway, here is a link to the instructions for the DC-7 and DC-7B conversion: http://www.aim72.co.uk/Pictures/DC-7 instructions-A5.pdf And similarly a link to the instructions for the DC-7C conversion: http://www.aim72.co.uk/Pictures/DC-7C instructions-A5.pdf

    All the conversions are vacuum or pressure cast in urethane resin with metal detail parts such as propellers or landing gear. The provisional production sequence is: DC-7B & DC-7C Canadair Yukon & CL-44 Canadair Argus Carvair Mandator Blue Steel transporter DH 86 Express - full kit.

    The most difficult master for the DC-7C conversion was the new centre section. It was finished yesterday, fits nicely, and this is what it looks like. From above And from below

    The DC-7C centre section now fits the fuselage nicely - it will go for casting on Monday (11 Feb 19) - the last part in the Douglas conversions. A lot of parts are already produced, only waiting for saddle tanks and centre sections, plus propellers now.
  8. Hi, Neil.

    I don't wanted to write this in the thread, but I am afraid that there is a wrong picture in your post of last Sunday (#57).

    The first image refers to the DC-7B and there is quite visible the central plug for the wing extension. As far as I know it is only for the DC-7C. This could be misleading.

    Congratulations on your project from a modeler that knows how challenging is to convert a 6B into a 7C.

    Regards

    Eugenio

    We never give release dates because too much can go wrong along the way. Before we get to the Carvair there are two Douglas and four Canadair conversions to release, plus other items. We routinely use metal propellers with the shaft integral with the propeller.

    Skyflash AAM

    The Meteor BVRAAM missiles having been delivered to Hannants, I decided to follow the suggestion to produce the Skyflash AAM in 1:48 and 1:72 scales. Here are some screenshots for interest,

    Meteor BVRAAM

    Meteor BVRAAMs - 1:48 and 1:72 missiles delivered to Hannants yesterday (Monday, 21 Jan 19). I am currently looking at other subjects.

    Meteor BVRAAM

    The Meteor packs should be with Hannants in a week to ten days. I will look at some Skyflash, Brimstone and Spear drawings. If anyone has any other suggestions, just add a post. If any are modelled there will be 1:72 and 1:48 versions.

    Meteor BVRAAM

    If this one sells well there is every chance that others will follow. If and if I can find accurate drawings and dimensions for Skyflash and Brimstone I will at least model them in CAD. For the record, the first Meteors were produced last week and are looking nice.
