With the prospect of an Easter weekend of good weather coming along, I thought it was time to dig out a kit I've had int he stash for 18 months since it was released at SMW in 2017 by Kits for Cash. Its a very large amount of resin that will need a significant amount of sanding so there was no way I was going to do that in the house or even in the shed! I've set up a work table in the garden ready to begin work tomorrow. Here are the original "sprue shots from 2017 Yes it has an obviously female pilot, unlike the Airfix kit! This is from the original batch of castings Simian Stuff did. Since they they've had it recast and this part is now split into 3, fuselage and separate wings. So now we come up to the present day and this evening I got it all out of the box that has been languishing on the shelf for 18 months and gave it all a good wash in warm soapy water. Here it is drying just now Tomorrow, weather permitting, I'll be out in the garden and start sanding down some of those quite prominent seams and flash...
Hi there! I was going to put this in the reviews section, but It seems I can't!....................so i'll put it here...................! While building My UNCL Fireball XL5, I became aware (thanks Kallista!) that there was a Studio Scale Angel Interceptor kit, produced by Simian Stuff and available through Kits For Cash:- https://www.kitsforcash.com/captain-scarlet-angel-interceptor-new-release-i5999.htm After viewing the price,and receiving a dose of smelling salts (Thank You Lisa!!), I decided I had got to have one! After several trips to 'Stash Convertor' (Ebay!!) , I managed to gather together enough plastic (resin?) vouchers to acquire one! I cannot find an out of the box review for the kit, so I thought I would put one up here so You can see what it's all about. 12" / 300mm rule shown in photos for scale. The kit comes in a large corrugated card box with a nice full colour label on the top:- A set of instructions cover the (not too difficult) assembly procedure, the kit comprises of only 27 parts, shown here:- ....and a nice set of Decals printed by Jbot Decals:- I think You are getting an idea of the size of this model, the Spectrum roundels are about 2"/50mm in diameter! Photos of the resin parts:- Rear Fuselage:- Upper and lower cockpit sections:- Separate Front jet intake (handy for painting the hard to get at bits) ,this is then fitted to the cockpit section,a close up of the cockpit detail, and posed with the nose section, which is re-inforced with a metal rod to prevent warping:- Main wing panels are solid resin with interlocking tabs,and fit together very nicely. Panel lines are engraved throughout on the external surfaces, including the large 'A' on the underside which will make for easy masking off:- The rear Ramjet intake is moulded seperately from the fin, to allow for the (supplied) aliminum mesh to be fitted into ready-formed recesses in it's underside, and to paint the areas seperately, before gluing to the main fin, a nice touch that will save a lot of fiddly masking!:- (Edit:- After further research, it appears that these are not intakes, but control and braking outlets!) Solid 1 piece tailplane is nearly 12" Span!! Clear resin cockpit should polish up nice:- Cockpit detail includes a nicely cast instrument panel and housing (no instrument decals supplied but should be easy to source):- One Angel figure, nicely cast with separate arms and boots (), arms with 'Rams Horn' yoke section ready moulded in, and a clear resin helmet moulding:- Ejector seat with finely moulded-in harness and full control yoke:- Nose skid, nose-gear door and metal rod for leg, and wingtip main skids:- the nose canard:- No scale is given for the kit, but working on published figures for the 'Real' aircraft, it comes out at about 1/24th, 'Studio Scale' , Approx. 30" / 760mm overall length It is not cheap (It has took a fair load off My roof trusses!) , but a finely made and well researched, and to My Mk.2 (untrained) eyeball, looks pretty damn close to Derek Meddings fantastic creation!! Very little work in the way of pour-stub removal and clean-up. Oh, and I have yet to find a bubble anywhere in any of the castings! I hope this review is of some use / interest! Keep Sticking!

Hi all, Some photographs of 4 of the kits I've completed since getting back into kit building - this time with a Sci-Fi/comic book slant. All mostly 'out of the box' builds and all great fun to make!
