The Revell Eurofighter Typhoon is sorely missing a centerline pylon for the Lightening pod, anything to consider please? Could be sold either as pylon only or pylon with pod depending ;)

 I'll look into it when the development pipeline clears out a little ;)

I'm very happy to release two items for the Meng Phantoms: the TISEO and the belly strap ūüėĄ

Looking great Arnaud!!!

 

How about a replacement part for the "heat shield"? The raised details just look strange...and are wrong

Thanks.

 

My first intuition woud be that the heat shield would be a MAJOR headache but I'll look into it, just to be sure ;)

I'm very glad to announce the release of the French airborne nuclear missile ASMP-A, as carried by the Mirage 2000N (until decommissionning) and now the Rafale B (Armée de l'Air) and M (Aéronavale)!

The locating bits are sized for the Revell (Rafale) and Kinetic (Mirage 2000) kits but it's easy to remove them and use the sets on other kits (Hobby Boss Rafale and Heller Mirage 2000N for example)

Can I add the inner wing pylons to that? ;)

They exist somehow but are hard to get...

  • arnobiz changed the title to BAM Dreamcatcher #1: and you, what's your 1/48 dream conversion set?

If you've had this fancy conversion set on your mind for a long time but lost hope it would ever come to light, now may be your time!

 

We just launched our very first ideas crowdsourcing campaign for BAM's next release! 10 days to give your input and what you'd like us to work on next, followed by a poll on the best (most fancy while feasible) ideas:

Our self-adhesive, thin belly strap for the Meng F-4 series is getting company! From now on it will come as a revised version (BAM48058v2) comprising the original belly strap and the horizontal tails reinforcement plates with full rivets, as Meng represents these with flush panel lines only ūüėē

 

 

If you ordered the legacy set and you need the reinforcement plates (note: Not all Phantoms had them! For example, as far as I know, Israeli Kurnasses don't), please leave a comment on your next order and I'll make sure you get them :)

 

If your order is currently processing you'll get the new version automatically, no action required ;)

The polls are open, have your say on BAM's next releases! Lots of tempting ideas, hard to prioritize :D

 

I need lots of votes to make it representative so please share the link, the more votes the more likely this is likely to happen!

Thank you,

And the winner is, by quite a wide margin, the Tomcat 21! I will work on it as my main project for the coming weeks, expect a release by end of June

 

The other ideas did not fall on a deaf man's ear, expect to see a few of them pop up in the BAM release stream soon too

Recently received the Triple Plow I intakes from Arnaud, absolutely outstanding quality, perfect fit, well worth the purchase price....looking forward to using them on an F-111K.

Thank you, glad you like them - looking forward to seeing your WIP ;)

  • arnobiz changed the title to BAM News - Super Myst√®re B2 (SMB2) exhaust and seamless intake coming soon!

The new Super Mystère B2 kit from FRROM/Special Hobby is very nice, and a welcome addition to the range. I've been busy working on a much better-detailed exhaust as well as a seamless intake, which are both nearly ready now :)

@arnobiz A product suggestion: Inner Pylons for the 1/48 Revell Eurofighter.  Phase Hangar/Two Mikes used to do a cast resin set, but dropped it as they transitioned to 3D printed parts. https://ipmsusa.org/reviews2/aircraft/details/2-mikes/2mikes_48_eurofighter-pylons.htm

Hello @arnobiz, 

 

I’ve received my YF-23 Black Widow detail set.

 

Excellent communication, my order came from Europe, and fast. 
 

For anyone one looking to buy one of these sets I can recommend them highly , the additional details will lift my mode up to another level. 
 

Also worth a look are the Furball decals 48-088, given are the two prototypes and fourteen fictional. Also very nice indeed.

They are both stand-alone.

 

The main difference is that the PAV-1 set also contains PAV-1 specific exhausts which differ quite a lot from the kit-provided PAV-2 exhausts. The other difference is that PAV-2 had two intrados oval vents not present on PAV-1.

Hello,

 

We have a series of conversion sets coming up for the Meng F-4E (Kurnass 2000, Terminator 2020) but today I wanted to announce our upcoming series of upgrades for the new Airfix Sea King, starting with the crew ladder. The landing gear and ceiling console are next :)

Release expected in a few days, stay tuned!

Sea King door looks good. Some suggestions for other items: 

 

New cockpit seats in line with the comments made by Crisp in his Build Thread

 

New winch housing, that includes the hand adjustable spotlight that the winch operator can use. 
 

Infra Red floodlights. 

 

Late service HU5 radar operators upper panel. 
 

FLIR screen and operators controls that are fitted to radar operators panel.
