HpH + Plastic = Infinity?

Recommended Posts

So apparently ... HpH are moving into the plastic arena (Infinity Models) ... and Heinz (the bearer of HpH news) has provided a list of subjects to be kitted ...

https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235064691-infinity-models/

I like the idea of the Val ... but wish they'd get onto a Kate also (unless they have wind that someone ELSE is already onto that one??? ... There's a Beaufighter Mk.X in there too ...

... as well as as an A-20 Havoc ...

Does this mean HGW is reverting back to HpH with the G casting?? - theres been no news for some time ... or are we getting HpH making the earlier variants??

Rog :)

I like the idea of them moving to short-run IM kits. And I have seen some great news in the list, like the Wyvern or the SM 79. 

One little more effort, and release the C-47 as an injection-molded DC-3, cheaper than the resin kit, please Infinity Models ;)

Hmmm. I can see the advantage from a sales perspective no doubt. But will the extra sales offset the much larger development costs?

I will buy the C-47 if it comes out plastic in a heart beat.   I've wanted that kit so much but I can't reason spending the money on the resin version.

The technology involved is short-run molds. They can be developed from the traditional masters HpH used for their resin kits. And selling 1000 units is no doubt better than selling 100 to 300. Especially as the cost of silicone molds is repeated as these molds wear out quickly ...

I am with you Tony. I wanted a DC-3. I might even have bought a C-47 kit to make it into a DC-3, but not at 700 € (European price including VAT)

Hum... For me sounds good... For much I enjoy HpH choices, they are quite expensive... I couldnt resist the Catalina Cutway and their Hornet but that was it... Unfortunally I let go the he-111 Cutway conversion... :(

So, Ifinity is a good news.

The SM79 came up in conversation here recently, so that's a positive. 

I must admit, I never thought we'd see a 1/32 IM kit of her. Good times!

The Helldiver is a must buy for me, hopefully it won’t be too pricey!

I have zero issues with it, but I DO love building their resin.

Last year, in Telford (2018), Hph had the Sm-79 mock up in display.

Now On plastic probably will be less expensive.

Plastic Vampire? YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!  Sorry LEM, plastic wins over resin any day when given the option. Pretty much everything on that list is of interest to me :piliot:
