Back from trip :-)

Hi all

Back from our annual vacation (if you could call it that, LOL).  My two young boys had a great time.  Making great memories, but I think I am actually more relaxed here settling back into my regular routine!

Thank you all very much for your patience — please know that I am working hard to get your order(s) out the door to you as soon as possible

Bye for now,

NEW RELEASE – AN/APS-20 Search Radar for Monogram/Revell B-17 G (PB-1W)


If you are interested in modding your 1/48 B-17 Flying Fortress to be a Navy Sub-hunter Fortress (PB-1W) without buying the more expensive/extensive set, then look no further!

Affordably priced at only $22.95, this highly-accurate radar housing captures the complex geometry of the AN/APS radar.  This is probably the single hardest piece of the conversion should you attempt to scratch one on your own!

You will not find a more accurate depiction of the AN/APS-20, nor will you find one for a better price.

Some experience with Resin parts is recommended when installing this piece.  While every effort was made to contour  to the kit geometry using 3D scanning technology, sand/blending/filling will be necessary before priming and ultimately painting.

Designed to fit Monogram B-17 G. Other items to help convert are available separately*

  • Cheyenne Tail [48012]
  • Staggered Waist Gunner positions [48013]
  • Late model G Exhaust [48082]

More details, including PE, vacuform and possibly decals will be available at some point in the near future!

NEW RELEASE – 1/48 B-17 Supercharger Upgrade Set (for Monogram kit)


Simply cut out the Monogram kit supercharger housing and switch out with our highly-detailed replacements designed and printed using 3D technologies.  Now, we could have included replacement pipes to accompany these, but if you look closely at the kit pipes (which connect to the supercharger housing on the bottoms of the nacelles), they’re not actually that bad!  So, I thought, lets keep the cost and amount of work involved for the modeler down.  The most visually impactful pieces, the 4 supercharger housings themselves, are included in great detail in this set.

Take care to ensure you are using the right-handed supercharger with the starboard nacelles (split up for you in separate baggies – one for each side, to make things easier), and vice-versa.

Note – subtle enlarging of the kit nacelle opening for the supercharger housing will be necessary as will careful measuring and cutting of the pipe under each nacelle.  You can either use a sharp hobby knife or motor tool.

Be sure to check out our other B-17 upgrades!
