The Skywarrior engine set is taking shape. The master parts have come back from 3d printing and are now in the post preparation stage (priming, sanding, priming, sanding...), getting ready for moulding the first inter-masters which will then again need to be prepped, some surface detail added and then I can make production moulds from them. I hope I'll have some prototype sets ready for Telford. The canopy masters are also progressing. I have changed my mind about the vacu-fromed production though. More details later...
Some surprising news has come through! Hypersonic Models products will be available at the IPMS USA nationals in Columbus, Ohio, 22-25 July (further details about the show under http://ipmsusa2015.com/)! The good people of SAM Publications (Scale Aviation Modeller International, Model Aircraft...) have offered to sell my stuff at their table, which can be found in the Delaware Room (tables 19-21, tbc.). Look mainly for their red tables and logo, and ask them for Hypersonic items (or Andy) in case you can't find anything. I will send my stock over by post so numbers will be very limited (5-10 copies per item) - make this your first stop of the day to avoid disappointment!
We're back! Normal business is resumed.
IMPORTANT NEWS: The web shop will be closed temporarily from Thursday, 14/05/15 until Wedneday, 03/06/15. Everything on the website will remain active except the checkout and payment process. I will be available to answer customer queries as well, but won't be able to post anything during that time. Products that are currently unavailable should return shortly after that as well.
The Martin Baker Mk. GRU5 seat sets are now ready to order - finally you can get a correct seat for your early Intruders (A-6A, A-6E and EA-6A, until the mid 70's) in 1:48. Due to my own blunder I sent the instructions to the printer with the wrong product number on it - doooh! As I didn't want to delay the release any further the first batch of seats will have a sticker with the correct number covering the wrong one...just in case you're wondering.
Due to yet another recent price increase by Royal Mail I had to increase my international postage prices slightly. Only the standard prices have gone up though, recorded delivery prices have remained the same. Please check my Postage Page for details. I have also made some small price adjustments on four products as well, with three of them actually becoming cheaper!
The GRU5 seats are nearly there - I have to work on the instruction sheet and get it to the printer next. First photos will appear soon!
Good news: The A-6 Intruder exhaust set is new ready and can be ordered from the shop! Also, I'm making steady progress on the GRU5 seats, but there's still a few weeks of work in them before I can release the set. Have a look over on my Facebook page for some more updates and pictures.
