    Scribing Ruler 15cm/6in

    The measuring tools that we released in Telford, the "Protractor & Set Square" and the "Scribing Rule" sold out as pre-orders before Telford. The demand was so high that we made another small batch just for Telford - it was delivered to the hotel in Telford and we packed it there at the stand during the show. By the end of the first day in Telford we ran out of packaging and we were selling these without packaging. Then we ran out of non-packaged items too. The demand was so high that somebody wanted to buy the "demo" set-square and ruler. Anyway, we are working on a large batch and we expect to be ready to send them in the next week or two. If you want any of our tools, please order them even if they are marked "out of stock". If your name is "on the list", we may even send your order before the items are marked "in stock" on the website. Radu
  2. RB Productions is going to launch a new decal sheet at the IPMS Scale Model World show in Telford on 10/11 November 2018. This is a decal sheet featuring four P-51D-5 Mustang aircraft flown by USAAF aces. As usual from RB Productions, these decals have a Romanian link. Many of the victories included in the scoreboards painted on these aircraft were gained in the skies of Romania during the spring/summer of 1944. What makes these victories even more impressive is that these aircraft were based on the Eastern coast of Italy, a distance of over 1000 Km away from Romania. All aircraft feature a "Red Nose", a distinctive feature that helped the Romanian and Luftwaffe pilots identify them as their foe. These decals are available in the following scales: 1/32 (Perfect for the new Revell kit): http://www.radubstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_65&products_id=741 1/48: http://www.radubstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_66&products_id=742 1/72: http://www.radubstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_67&products_id=743 RB Productions will have a stand at the IPMS Scale Model World show held in Telford on the week-end of 10-11 November 2018. You can pre-order any items from the store to collect at the show if you wish to save on postage. A discount of 10% will apply to pre-orders collected at the show.

    1/32 P-51D Mustang Cockpit Floors

    These decals were tailor-made to fit the Revell kit. I have not tried them with other Mustang kits. I doubt that they will fit other kits as well as they will fit the Revell kit. I have no plans at this moment to make similar decals that fit other kits. :-) Radu
  6. Hi, We recently launched a couple of decal sheets tailor-made for the new Revell P-51D Mustang kit. http://www.radubstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_65&products_id=717 http://www.radubstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_65&products_id=718 The first sheet depicts the varnished wooden panels on the cockpit floor. During the war, these panels were coated with a black anti-slip coating. Many of the currently flying P-51D Mustangs feature clear-varnished wood panels. When the anti-slip coating was applied, it wore out. With this decal, you can add the "anti-slip coating" using black paint, in patches, in order to simulate the worn-out look. The panels also feature metal fasteners matching the raised detail on the Revell plastic kit parts. The sheet also includes the canopy rails, printed in metallic paint. The second sheet depicts the anti-slip coated wooden panels on the cockpit floor. During the war, these panels were coated with a black anti-slip coating, which often wore out in the areas under the rudder pedals. With this decal, you can add the panels with the worn-out look. The panels also feature metal fasteners matching the raised detail on the Revell plastic kit parts. The sheet also includes the canopy rails, printed in metallic paint. The decals are silk screen-printed by Fantasy Printshop. Thank you for your support. Radu

  9. As James mentioned above, I include donwloadable instructions with my models. The reason is "cost". Printing is expensive and a printed instruction sheet would add another 5 euro (or maybe more) to the price. You will see this with short-run kits, almost bespoke or artisan models. We do runs of 100 or 200 resin kits. Some of our resin kits have a production run of only 50. On production runs of more than 1000 kits, getting the printing done in bulk is cheaper, but on very limited runs, printing becomes a significant expense that can "sink" a project. So, I decided to NOT include a CD with the kit but rather make the instructions available in pdf format by download. We did not come to this decision lightly. At our club meetings we asked some fellow modellers whether they preferred a printed instruction sheets at an extra 5 euro added to the price tag or a downloadable instruction sheet at no extra cost. The overwhelming majority, maybe 9 in 10, said that they preferred the cheaper option. There are numerous advantages to downloadable files. To start with, my laptop comes with no CD drive now, so a CD would be useless. But on that laptop I can download the instructions in a few minutes. I can also download the instructions on a mobile phone, tablet, e-reader, even a game console. Furthermore, I have a few older "obsolete" phones and tablets (android, ipad, kindle) in the house and a couple of them are now in my workshop and I use them constantly to access electronic information, photos, articles, etc, while working. Another major advantage is that with a pdf on a screen you can zoom in and enlarge any image that may be unclear and see better how parts should be assembled. Radu
  10. Well, your list has 10 items. Revell can only do one 1/32 new tool a year. So... even if they chose one from your list, this could take a while... And you are not the only one with a list. Other people's list may not even have one single plane from yours. :-) No matter what Revell picked, people would be "disappointed. " Equally, people will be pleased. As I already said, I can see the Hurricane and the Mustang B doing well in 1/32. Who knows? They may be made eventually. They may even be done by many competing manufacturers. But I cannot picture ANY scenario that would determine a manufacturer, any manufacturer, to choose a Defiant or a Battle over a Me 262 in scale 1/32. :-) Radu
  11. I seriously doubt that any of these models would "beat" the 262 in sales volumes. Yes, I can see a Hurricane or a Mustang doing much better than a 262, but a Battle selling "better" than a 262? Radu
  12. Hi, We just released three new products: - Romanian Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6 Part 2. This is a decal sheet featuring 5 interesting aircraft with unusual markings.

    Ar234 Monographs 3D edition / Kagero

    I can't really tell from what I can see in these images whether the 3D renderings are ok or not. But the line drawings have obvious flaws such as short engines, incorrect wing angle of incidence, bad wing shape and bad cross sections. There is a whole long list of issues with those drawings... Radu

    Ar234 Monographs 3D edition / Kagero

    The "scale" line drawings aren't correct. They simply replicate the issues that first appeared in B. Hygate's drawings, which were published in so many places. Radu
