NEW RELEASE (AC48130) 1/48 Su-25 Frogfoot FOB/Intake Covers for KP

AC48130

The inside of modern jet intakes has always been a tough area to clean up and make realistic — if you are hitting modeler’s block and need a morale boost, or if you want to depict a different look for your Frogfoot, check out these new FOB covers!

Set includes 2 covers for Front Intake and 2 covers for Exhaust Nozzle.

Delicately and intricately designed (note – realistic stressed skin, handles, etc.!) and cast in a light-gray resin, R2D’s FOB covers are the perfect way (and easiest way) to creatively close off the otherwise bland and difficult-to-detail air intake area of the Frogfoot!  These puppies drop fit right into the kit’s opening and only require very light clean-up and sanding to contour perfectly to the kit — see pics in the gallery.

Modeler’s note – these were typically painted in a bright red color.

Affordably priced at only $5.99 per set!

NEW RELEASE: B-29 Superfortress SET of 4 – R-3350 Engine Upgrades

AC48097

One of the areas of the model that are very hard to convincingly replicate in injection molded plastic are img_1810the radial engines. They lack depth and are very hard to make truly eye-catching.  That’s where RESIN2detail comes to the rescue!

Try out our new set of 4 Wright R-3350 Duplex Cyclone engine fronts on your Monogram™ Superfortress — simply remove the engine from the sprue and mate to the kit bulkhead, or a styrene card bulkhead.  Then add the pushrods to the sides of each cylinder (included). A coat of primer, gray/aluminum finish and some oil weathering and — boom 🙂

Affordably priced at just $24.99 for the set!

Click HERE to purchase!

Intended for the intermediate to advanced modeler – requires modifications to the kit bulkhead and/or nacelle.  Prior experience with resin details will be helpful, but not required. Not intended for use by modelers under 13.

NEW RELEASE: 1/48 B-29 Superfortress Exhaust and Supercharger UPDATE Set

AC48100

fullsizerender-2Kick it up a notch with this set of 8 supercharger/exhaust replacements (4 right-side and 4 left-side), with full compartment which includes the supercharger(s), exhaust stack(s), wire(s), etc.  Also included, are 8 supercharger panels to close up the compartment(s) if you so choose.  This set will upgrade all four engine nacelles on your Superfortress model!

One of the areas of the Monogram™ kit that needs attention, is the area on the nacelle sides with the Supercharger and Exhaust access panel and stacks.  The kit’s representation is inaccurate and shallow profile-wise. Ours are super detailed and designed using state-of-the-art 3D scanning technology to ensure a precise fit with the kit nacelles.

Remove supercharger sections from side of kit engine nacelle and replace with the Update Set pieces. Use gap-filling CA glue or epoxy putty to fill seams.
