1/200 Belt loader TUG 660 / Neo engines PE fixed

Dear all,

I have fixed the Neo engines PE sheets which were missing two engine spoilers, photo has been updated on the product page.

I have started a first test build of the 1/200 Belt loader TUG 660 which has almost all the same parts as its bigger brother (1/144) including: driver, driving mirror, engine, rear axle, adjustable conveyor and will have PE as well.

Please note that the conveyor in the photos seems a bit bended, this will be corrected later.

Best wishes,

Guillem

To make things clear

Hello,

It is not usual that I write two entries in the same day, but I wanted to clarify one thing that has been bugging me for some time.

I have been told by some people (and maybe some others who had the same thing happen to them) that I have been written to and that I haven’t responded to the emails. First of all, I do respond to all the emails that I receive and to everybody who writes me, to me it is very important to know what you guys think/want/ask and request, because I am the same as yours and we like/love/enjoy the same things. So, no, I did not ignore any email, I did not forget to write or anything of the sort.
I must say that sometimes, because of I am full of stress doing everything, thinking about everything, often caring about grandma, caring about pets, sometimes takes me a couple days to answer an email, but I always end up doing so.

What happens is that the contact form servers may have a conflict to deliver a message, or my email host may have issues, or yours, who knows why an email is not delivered, I unfortunately do not have the knowledge enough to know. So for this reason, some days ago I created another account:┬áThis way, if you don’t have news from me, you can try another email which is from a well known host.

On the contact page, besides the online form, you will also find this same address, which is in an image format to avoid as much as possible the spams.

Now onto the modeling subject, this weekend I will try the belt loader at 1/200 scale, weekends are the only time when I can actually do tests of next models, because the rest of the days the equipment is used for production and there is a lot of testing required when making such small things.

Work continues.
Best wishes,
Guillem

 

LEAP-1A and PW1000G released

Hello everybody,

The Neo engines for the A319, A320 and A321 family have been released, there will be more units of these in the next days. Restocking of some of the figures have been added.

I am currently working on the rest of the GSE, will have more units of these at the end of next week.

I am currently thinking about how to proceed on the B747-8F/-400F, so hopefully I can advance with it soon. Also considering the A330-900 since the the thought (wish) I had for producing a new A330-300.

Both are going to be long projects like the 1/12 B737 cockpit, so I am taking one step at a time and working on those projects that I already started, so that means that at the moment, the A330 will be on a planning stage.

Wish you all have a nice weekend!
Best wishes,
Guillem

A reflexion on the A330 and the 747-8F/-400F project

Dear all,

Prior writing about the A330 and the 747-8F/-400F, I would like to mention that tomorrow I will set available the Neo engines, will also restock some of the figures and will be restocking the various GSE during next week. Gpu’s are coming first, then belt loader, stair truck and pushbacks. It is impossible for me to do all at once, so each model (or two models) will have the same release date which you will be able to see in product page.
I am also doing some minor changes at my workplace, adding extra lighting, a ceiling fan (I really, really needed this) and reorganizing the areas where I do each process.

Now onto the 747-8F/-400F, I am going to purchase another freighter kit, because I consider that things can be done differently now that I can use the 3D. I think that the fuselage I was using does not fit the criteria I want for this, I am still thinking about the main deck, the fuselage differences of the Revell-Zvezda kits… so although the work is on pause, it is not so in my mind.

I have been working on the A330 sharklets, this aircraft is one of my favourites and I wanted to purchase another of Revell’s kit, but it seems to me that the A330-300 is discontinued, at least, it is not in stock on most of online hobby stores, it may be found at eBay I guess, but I do not want that… I want something more permanent…

So I was thinking… what if I make my own? I think that if Revell’s A330 is discontinued, having another A330 on the market would also give an extra chance to decal makers and aircraft accessories such as engines, both already in the market for the Revell kit, that could also be used on this A330.
If I am going to make the A330, it would already be with a built in cargo holds and galleys, not planning the interior because to be honest, 2mm windows does not show much, but I would like to make clear passenger and cockpit windows.

This would definitely be a big challenge for me, another project that may pile on the top of what I already have, so I am going to leave this as “wish” at the moment, because for current projects (other than GSE) is the 747-8F/-400F main deck detail set and the 1/12 B737 cockpit which is still progressing.

I hope to have a chance this weekend to paint the spotters figures since I haven’t been able to do this before.

Wish you are all safe,
Guillem

1/144 LEAP-1A and P&W 1000G preview

Hi everybody,

As I am producing more units of GSE and figures, I am also working on the 1/144 Neo engines that I hope to release at the end of next week, this is a first preview prior decal testing and still missing the spoilers which will be a PE part.

It may be difficult to arrive on time, but I think I can. I am at this very moment designing the pylon and diffuser decals, other decals will remain from the former versions I made in the past.

These engines were made by using lots of reference photos and measurements, so I feel quite happy with the result because these are the first engines I produced in this manner, that means that I am ready for other engines regardless they were produced or not by other manufacturers in the past, I just simply want to create my own and try to detail them as much as possible.

In a few days I will be indicating at the store under each item the date when it will become available again. You will notice that by seeing a date under the product availability, so now it is more informative, besides subscribing for notification, you can also get an exact date when it will be ready.

At the moment, this is a bit risky, because I do not have spare tools or another equipment yet, so once I can set a restocking date, it will mean that the items are created but pending yet to be cut/bagged/PE created.

Restocking will not take that much as it took me before, I am trying to have a balance of work, restock, and create the new stuff which I keep in mind, the sharklets, more GSE for 1/200 and the two big projects; the 747-8F/-400F and the 1/12 B737 cabin.

Work continues, wish everybody is safe and healthy.
Guillem

 

Important Message

Hello everyone,

Although the national post services are working full time and all shipping methods are available, some countries are still not allowed to ship to. Hence, some of the recent orders are on hold awaiting customer decision on either, put the order on hold till shipping is available, send it to a friend or relative in another country, or get a full reffund. All customers in this situation have already been contacted.

This is something that made me mad, because there is no such clear information about this on our national post services website, therefore, upon founding the list while preparing the first orders, I wanted to share it with you.

This is the list where shippings are possible:

GERMANY
SAUDI ARABIA
ARGENTINA
ARMENIA

If you are purchasing from a country which is not in the list, you can still do so, but the order will have to be on hold until shipping becomes available. This list will be updated on the national post website, so I will keep an eye on it. However I want to emphasize that orders can still be placed and that the three options I mentioned at the beginning are all possible for the customer.

At the same time, I would like to say that most of the orders have been already shipped today. There are still a couple that came in later over the weekend and today that I am going to prepare to ship them later this week.

As you can see, there are not many units left at the store, this means that I must work harder to restock, but it also means that thanks to you all, I can keep on working on these items, creating new stuff and giving me a lot of motiviation and energy to go on, I am very very grateful. Rest assured that more new stuff will come, either with GSE, figures and other airliner items.

I will be restocking items in due time, this time the restocking time will be automatic, so you will be able to see which day the item will be back in stock again, some items may take longer than others.

Wish you are all safe and sound,
Guillem
