OZMODS APRIL 2013 UPDATE

Postby gregozmods » Sun Apr 07, 2013 5:39 pm

At long last the correction and upgrade for the 1/48 Vengeance is ready! Production is underway, and we're just waiting for the vacform canopies to arrive from the UK before the kit will be released. Price is still Aus$66 plus post. (See photos below.)

The 1/144 F-111 full kit is still being worked on by Chris, but he has his final year of university that is taking priority at the moment (plus the fact that he ties the knot with Betina later this year). So will keep you all posted ... and, judging by the looks at the F-111 posting, this is an eagerly awaited kit.

And here's a sudden one from OzMods! A 1/32 Yokosuka Ohka II Piloted Flying Bomb full kit! Sorry there has been no prior warning about it ... but it has just happened out of the blue (so to speak). This is a complete resin kit (with decals and vac canopy) that OzMods is producing and marketing in association with Lock On Models. It is the old Lone Star Models kit (from the US) that has been cleaned up and with a few extra parts added. It is currently in production, just awaiting the vacform canopies to arrive. Price is Aus$55 plus post. (See photos below.)

Also due to be released shortly will be a correction/upgrade kit for 1/72 Fokker F-27 Friendships. This pack will include new main and nose legs and wheels, landing gear doors, tail plane and fin corrections. We will post photos of the parts shortly.

Hello Mr gregozmods,

In your OZMODS April 2013 update you mentioned:

Also due to be released shortly will be a correction/upgrade kit for 1/72 Fokker F-27 Friendships. This pack will include new main and nose legs and wheels, landing gear doors, tail plane and fin corrections. We will post photos of the parts shortly.


I am very interested in the status op the update and perhaps could you show us already some parts?

Sincerely,

Hi Hans:

We're waiting to see the final masters. John has been upcountry (and over here that means 2,500 kms) for the past week and is on his way back. Hopefully have something to show you when he returns and gets settled back into his routine. Greg.

Hello Greg,

did you see the final masters already? Is there any progress with the upgrade for the Fokker F-27 Friendship?

I'm glad the Flying Bomb has been deemed "Not Suitable for Children". I hear those things were quite dangerous to fly :D
Seriously though, they look like lovely kits!

Hi Hans:

We've got the Friendship landing gear correction masters ... just haven't had any time available to get them on the market. Will keep you posted (still trying to get another two new full kits out before the end of this year).

Hello Greg,
