So I've decided its time to stop just looking at this huge box of resin and do something about it! I first heard about this kit at Telford in 2014, talking to Ian from Kits for Cash when I bought the UFO kit which has been built since this thread started: Then last year (2015) they actually had it with them, it looked superb... This is a very limited run of kits, so much so that there were only 17 available for sale and the price was considerable (cough!) However Ian was such a good salesman that when he said I could pay in instalments, my resistance finally crumbled and the credit card timidly appeared! So back in December a very large box arrived on my doorstep... on opening it there was an insane amount of resin!! Yes thats a 12" white ruler in the middle of it all! A few weeks later another package arrived and it contained the driver figure Pity its not Gabrielle Drake though... It must be said the casting of this resin is superb. The detail is crisp, I can't find any major pits or bubbles, and everything is solid and complete. There are lots of lugs and sprue attachments but thats only to be expected in a resin kit. Here is the back panel - check out the Scammell Tank Transporter roof parts This part is for the rear of the chassis and its a case of spot the kit parts! Next it the roof part that joins the cabin to the main body, just look that grille casting Next is a side panel with superb panel detail and finally a drive wheel (edge on) plus a road wheel (side on) along with a cabin seat and the instrument panel from the cabin. The first job was to wash everything in soapy water and start cleaning up the pieces. The first stage of construction will involve the main chassis and preparing it for the attachment of the roadwheels.
I am not sure how to post this in the section for manufactures, so if admin can move this to that section :), I just wanted to let everyone know I have moved forwards with production of my 1/144 scale model kit of DPRK ICBM TEL this was conversion of my model that was used on the front of Jane's Intel Review that I then converted into 3D printable model. Model kit goes for 60$.. although I also have just the missile and detachable launch stand bucket for 25$ on site without the TEL Anyone that would like to place a reservation for kit can place order here. https://armamentsinmini.myshopify.com/

Grob Viking Glider 1:48 Heritage Aviation Models The Grob G103A Twin II, or Viking T.1 in RAF service is a high performance twin seater sailplane or glider made by Grob Aircraft of Germany. The aircraft is made of glass fibre featuring a T-tail configuration. It has a six inch main wheel fitted behind the centre of gravity equipped with a hydraulic brake, and a nose wheel. Approach control is handles by top surface Schempp-Hirth type airbrakes. A total of 549 aircraft were produced with 100 being bought by The Royal Air Force for it's Air Cadets training programme. The aircraft is also used in the same role by The Belgian Air Cadets. The kit There is not much to this one. The kit consists of a one part moulded main fuselage, including the rudder. The two main wings, the tailplane, two seats, two instrument panels and two control columns. Care will be needed in cleaning up the main fuselange as the landing wheels are moulded on. The resin casting is good with no short shot areas or pinholes visible anywhere. Clean up will be minimal with none needed on the main wings. Canopy The canopy on this one is vacformed, its good that there are two because if you are like the reviewer you invariably stuff one up. The canopy is clear and well moulded. Decals The decals are printed by Fantasy Printshop and look up to their excellent standards. It looks like you are able to build any glider currently in service with the serials provided. The orange stripes for the nose and rudder are provided, however the rest of the orange areas on the wings will have to be painted. Instructions To quote from the Instructions "Its not exactly rocket science this one, so we'll let the pictures do the talking". Well they say a picture is worth a 1000 words but not here I am sorry to say. While fitting the main parts is no problem you are faced with different sized seats, and different sized instrument panels. No mention is made of which goes in which cockpit. I am told by someone who has flown one of these that the larger items go on the rear cockpit. A colour match for the orange to match the decals would also be helpful. Conclusion I think this is the only kit available of the Grob, with good resin casting and excellent decals the kit should make up into a nice model. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of Ian at
