  1. A-26/B-26 Invader Brass Undercarriage (for ICM) 1:48 Aerocraft Models To the joy and surprise of modellers ICM recently gave started a new line in A-26/B-26 Invade kits. These are large and impressive kit and a bit weighty Ali at Aerocraft has thought of this and has been busy at work creating this set to replace the kit parts in tough brass to alleviate any concerns. The set arrives in an unassuming ziplok bag, with three parts inside, all made from brass. With two main gear legs and the nose leg. Preparation of the brass parts will inv
  2. P-38 Lightning Brass Undercarriage (for Tamiya) 1:48 Aerocraft Models To the joy and surprise of modellers Tamiya recently gave us a new tool of the iconic twin boom Lockheed P-38 Lightning. Ali at Aerocraft had the same feeling, and has been busy at work creating this set to replace the kit parts in tough brass to alleviate our concerns. The set arrives in an unassuming ziplok bag, with three parts inside, all made from brass. With two main gear legs and the nose leg. Preparation of the brass parts will involve removal of the casting ga
  3. Cessna O-2A Skymaster Brass Undercarriage (for ICM) 1:48 Aerocraft Models To my immense joy, ICM have recently released their brand new tooling of the quirky Skymaster in 1:48, which we reviewed here recently. Immediately on seeing the main gear leg there were some concerns about strength, as the styrene part is scale-thickness, so necessarily thin. Ali at Aerocraft had the same feeling, and has been busy at work creating this set to replace the kit parts in tough brass to alleviate our concerns. The set arrives in an unassuming ziplok bag, with thre
  4. Messerschmitt Bf 108 Brass Undercarriage Set 1:72 AeroCraft Models for Eduard Kit It was good to see Eduard bought and completed the 1/32 Bf 108 project from "Striped Fighter". The kit as it arrives looks great, however the undercarriage is scale thickness and does look thin. Ali has recast this into brass which should help support the model for as long as is needed. While some cleaning up of the brass parts might be needed these look virtually ready to fit as is, with just the stubs on the axles to remove. I would recommend these as a buy if you have the k
  5. DHC-6 Twin Otter Update Sets 1:72 AeroCraft Models While the available kit is a good one, it leaves room for improvement which Ali has now addressed. New cockpit Set This is a complete new cockpit section with the windows cast in clear resin with correctly proportioned windows. As well as the lower part there is also a new cockpit bulkhead. Tail Planes Set Most of the versions of the kit suffer from sink/shrink marks in the tail planes and this is a quick drop in replacement for t
  6. Blackburn Buccaneer S.1 Intake, Exhaust & Air Brake Update Sets 1:72 AeroCraft Models There was little doubt that once the new Airfix Bucc was released that there would be plenty of options being produced for it. This is really a pair of backdate sets to make the earlier S.1 Intake Conversion Set There are new intakes for the S.1 These are hollow cast, with new fan blade faces. The intakes feature the section of wing which joins them. Comprehensive instructions are supplied online. E
  7. P-51D Mustang Canopy Set for Revell Kit. 1:32 AeroCraft Models There was little doubt that once the new Revell 1.32 P-51D is a great kit, however one of the areas that lets it down is the overly thick canopy. Ali has worked on this with a new resin canopy. This new canopy is very thin for a resin one, and this reviewer at first thought it was vac form. The canopy is thin and as distortion free as it can be while still keeping all the lines needed for masking. Indeed for masking internal support will be a must. The caopy shown here is as it comes and the clarity is
  8. Hawker Hunter T.7 Conversion (for Airfix) 1:48 AeroCraft Models There was little doubt that once the new Airfix Hunter was released that someone would do a conversion for the T.7 Family model. First of the mark was Ali from Aerocraft in time for 2019 Telford. They were used for training by the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force as well as overseas (With different designations). In the box are 27 resin parts including a full cockpit and ejection seats. A beautifully cast resin canopy (in two parts), additional clear parts; a small PE fret, a length of pla
  9. Hawker Hunter Brass undercarriage set (for Airfix) 1:48 AeroCraft Models By now you've probably noticed there was a Hunter theme going on yesterday. We reviewed the flying surfaces here, and the corrected pylons here, and now it's time to finish the triple with the landing gear, or undercarriage as we sometimes call it. As usual with AeroCraft sets, it arrives in a ziplok bag, with the brass parts within a smaller one to prevent chaffing between the disparate materials. Inside the bag are five brass parts and one resin part. The main gear legs are o
  10. Brass Landing Gear (internal) for Hobby Boss B-24J Liberator 1:32 Aerocraft Models We reviewed the new Hobby Boss B-24J recently here, and we generally liked it, with one very important issue that could affect the finished model's durability. The plastic gear legs. I measured the weight of the seven largest parts as 640g, to which there is 300g of nose weight to be added, plus a complete interior, engines, paint, glue and any aftermarket that you may decide to throw into the mix. My estimate of the finished weight could be 1.5kg or more, and Hobby Boss have incl
  11. Vickers Wellington DWI (Directional Wireless Installation) - Conversion 1:72 Aerocraft Models - For Airfix Kit The Wellington DWI Directional Wireless Installation was an unusual looking aircraft to say the least. This was developed to deal with the increasing problem of magnetic mines dropped in UK waters early in WWII. After an intact mine was recovered and examined various ways to deal with them were looked at. The idea of detonating the mines from ships was quickly dispensed with due to damage to the ships. It was then thought an aerial means was possible. A la
  12. Typhoon Landing Gear Strut (for Revell) 1:32 AeroCraft Models It's a known fact that the nose gear leg on the Eurofighter Typhoon is a little weak on the Revell kits of any scale due to the slender nature of the real thing, but the 1:32 kit is a big model once built, and if you add any resin to the mix, you're going to be putting a fair amount of additional stress on an already weak part. Ali has had a new master of the strut made, which includes all but one of the ancillary struts in a single metal casting. It has been augmented with other details too, so it's n
  13. OV-10 Bronco Replacement Metal Undercarriage 1:32 Aerocraft Models - For Kitty Hawk Kit The 1/32 Kitty Hawk Bronco is a good kit. However the undercarriage is a weak point (literally) in the kit. New brass ones have been made by Ali of Aerocraft models. Metal Undercarriage legs In this set you get new replacement cast brass undercarriage legs for the kit. The new parts are direct replacements for the kit parts. The quality of the castings are some of the best I have seen and much better that other metal sets. There are some slight casting ma
  14. F-4 Phantom Undercarriage & Doors Replacement Sets 1:32 Aerocraft Models - For Revell Kit The 1/32 Revell F-4 is a good kit. However it is lacking in a couple of areas. These three new sets have been made by Ali of Aerocraft models. Main Gear Doors These are new main gear doors who's shape has been reworked to improve the look. They are direct replacements for the kit parts. Undercarriage Wheel Doors Set As well as the new main gear doors above there are new nose gear doors and their lights. The
  15. UK Phantom replacement Exhausts, Intake ramps & pylons. 1:72 Aerocraft Models - For Airfix Kit The new 1/72 Airfix UK Phantom was a very welcome kit. However it is lacking in a couple of areas. These three new sets have been made by Ali of Aerocraft models. All three sets come in a double style of packaging which is done to reduce the cost ratio for shipping. This though is a bad move which will encourage the modeller to buy more kits Exhausts The new exhausts are 3D printed and are a direct replacement for the kit parts.
