Stampe Conversion Kit..!

DSCN0972

With the release of the 1/72 Azur/Fromm Stampe SV.4 kits, comes the opportunity to model another player of the third Indiana Jones movie, the biplane in which both Dr.Jones escape from the Nazi Germany-bound Zeppelin..!  Here is an early shot of some of the modified Azur/Fromm parts (including the wing that has not been converted yet) that will make up this forthcoming RetroSF conversion kit.  Decals will be included.  Estimated release date is early- to mid-September 2015, possibly in time for the International Small Scale Convention in Heiden, Germany.

Next show for RetrokiT is Smallspace 4, in Hanslope, nr. Milton Keynes, UK.  This is our fourth participation to this epic SF/F event, the occasion to meet up with a few old friends, meet new ones and hopefully, release a few new ‘yellow helpers’..!  The date is Sunday 12 July, from 9am.

Little setback..

RW44100WIP

Aaargh!  The planned release of three new ‘yellow helpers’ this month is postponed until probably August due to caster’s health reasons..  There are times when I think the casting should be done in-house, but then I remember I would not have the time to enjoy myself with the making of new patterns..  Outsourcing some aspects of the business made sense 8 years ago, and I think it still makes sense nowadays, even if little setbacks do prop up time to time.  Anyway, work on new patterns is going well and our ‘to be cast’ list grows longer and longer with (along with quite a few other ‘yellow helpers’), a Rufe Egg Plane conversion kit, a 1/200 Boeing 717, and 1/144 bits for Intruder (due out later this month!), Vigilante, Stratojet, Jaguar, Delta Dart and soon to join the list, early Stratofortress.
