  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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. This sheet is available in scales 1/32, 1/48 and 1/72. This sheet will be launched at the IPMS Scale Model World Show in Telford on 7 November 2015. For more information, please visit this link: http://www.radubstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_65&products_id=641 - self-adhesive masking strips. Use these strips to mask complex patterns on compound curves. Now you can paint spinier spirals and stripes on weapons, radar domes and drop tanks.

  7. 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
  8. 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

  10. In the past, I had bad experiences with old miliput. What happens is that it breaks into small "crumbs" that do not mix with the other component and remain uncured. The result is a surface with with uncured spots that are impossible to process (sand/file or scribe). Personally, I would chop and cut away all hardened bits from each stick until reaching the soft core (if any is left) and only use that. If the whole thing is gone hard and brittle, I would not use it. Radu
  11. fly model

    Wow! Blast from the past! Around this time eight years ago I was working on the masters for that. Radu
  12. fly model

    Nice model so far. I think it may the same type of sealant tape used on the Corsair panels on the top of the nose. In that place there is a bulkhead separating the cockpit section and the fuselage section. Radu
  13. Thanks! Technically this is ready to use with an Arado (or any plane that can be fitted with a yow bar) out of the box, but the vehicle that is usually shown in photos towing the Arado is the Kettenkrad. ZM makes a nice one: http://www.zoukeimura.co.jp/en/products/sws_ketten.html Regards, Radu
  14. Thanks very much everyone for your kind words. Radu
  15. Hi, I just finished the design work on a 1/32 Scheuch Schlepper. This is the result of one year of research (measurements, photos) and 3d design. This is heading for the workshop now. It will be a resin and photo-etch model. "Lifting devices" to be attached at the back are in development. Here are a couple of renderings. I hope you like it. Radu
