Title: Fantastic Plastic
Post by: ABU625 on December 12, 2006, 08:23:40 am
For you "What If...?" warplane fans out there, I've just released the Fantastic Plastic 1:144 Convair XB-53 bomber:

My Webpage (http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/ConvairXB-53CataloguePage.htm)

This weird forward-swept-wing medium bomber project was developed by Convair between 1941 and 1949, but was ultimately scuttled before it reached the mock-up stage. (I wonder what the stability of the plane would have been like in the pre-computer-assisted control era?)

This is a simple four-piece kit with a clear resin nose. Silver strip decals allow you to build the "framework" for both the cockpit and clear nose windows. Total length of the finished model is 6.25 inches.

It's a great stocking-stuffer!

This is more than a "What If?" kit.  It's a "What the Heck...?"

Back in the early 1970s, aerospace engineers were trying to determine the optimal configuration for NASA's proposed Space Shuttle.  At North American Rockwell, they came up with this proposal for minimizing the ship's length while keeping the cargo area consistent with more linear designs.  It's a weird-donkey design for sure -- and now you can add the "Breadbox" Shuttle to your "What If?" spacecraft collection with this 1:144 from Fantastic Plastic!

Here's a new Luft '46 kit from Fantastic Plastic: The Hutter Hu-136 "Stubo II" Ground Attack Fighter.

http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/HutterHU136CataloguePage.htm

This is an early-War (1938) design for a compact bomb-carrying tactical fighter that could be launched via trolley and then land by use of a retractable landing skid. Not a whole lot of visibilty for the pilot!

The kit was patterned and cast exclusively for Fantastic Plastic by Anigrand Craftswork. The kit sells for $49 plus shipping.

Thanks for looking!

Maybe when I win Lotto

Now I'm not knocking Luft '46 subjects or the manufacturers who produce this sort of thing to fill a niche market, but how come stuff like this can be produced when there's no decent injection moulded Supermarine Swift out there at a decent price, eh?  Mr Airfix stop faffing with imaginary Mistels and give us a decent Swift!!  ;D ;D

Heck, as the post above shows I've been waiting two years for this!  Trouble is, now that pound is low I don't think I can afford the 50 to buy it, after already shelling out a similar amount on the Anigrand T-4MS.

Here's my prototype build of the Convair 49 Advanced Aerial Fire Support System (AAFSS) in 1:72. Produced by Anigrand Craftswork exclusively for Fantastic Plastic Models, this is the first kit ever produced of this truly weird-#*@((!&#$ flying whatzit.

http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/Convair49Page.htm  (http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/Convair49Page.htm)

Building the model with the cockpit angled at 90 degrees proved to be something of a challenge as there's no specific hinge mechanism provided -- nor discussed in the limited technical docs we used to develop the kit. My solution was rather simple: I bent a stiff wire at a 90-degree angle, drilled a hole in the back of the cockpit and one in rotor core and -- voila! Instant support. (The resin "piston" behind the cockpit provides further stability.)

I painted the kit overall NATO Green and gave it several coats of Testors Dullcoat for a nice matte finish.

Although the kit comes with both U.S. Army and USMC decals (courtesy of JBOT), I went with the Army scheme seen in most historical illustrations of the concept.

The kit will be released tomorrow! (April 7)

The Talon is now out from the movie Stealth.

Those of us who were kids in the late 70's will love this as another Scifi kit announced is the Starfighter from Buck Rodgers  ;D.

Those with a passion for sci-fi can soon try pitching Star Wars fighters, against Battlestar Galactica fighters and now Buck Rodgers all in in 1/7s scale  ;D

Title: Re: Fantastic Plastic
Post by: Mossie on September 23, 2009, 02:20:05 am
I'd like both the Talon & Manta, but cost is the big problem.  The Talon is $110, around 70!!!  I know the exchange rate isn't fantastic, but it's not really bad at the moment either.  I think that's very costly for a 1/72 fighter & is up there with the Czechmaster Buccaneers, but they include photo etch, many options & enough detail to be a near show winner oob.
Title: Re: Fantastic Plastic
Post by: lancer on September 23, 2009, 01:05:06 pm
Really pleased they're bringing out the Hammerhead, Manta and the Buck Rogers Starfighter, always wanted kits of these. I guess you have to expect the price as they're all resin and exchange rates and such like, but I might be tempted to get at least one, and wait/hope for the price to fall.
Title: Re: Fantastic Plastic
Post by: Mossie on September 23, 2009, 02:38:43 pm
I don't think the price will get really good any time soon.  The exchange rate we experienced before the fall was the opposite, nearly $2 to the pound & unusually good.  Even at the classic rate of 1.75, it'll be around 60.  I know it's resin, I just don't think you get the same value for money as other resin manufacturers.  Even Anigrand (their stuff is getting more affordable again) give you a fair bit more resin for your cash.

I don't want to sound churlish.  I realise costs change on locality & such too.  I'm not getting on my high horse about it, Alan has a right to charge what he likes & only makes a small amount of kits & probably isn't getting rich from it.  He might get more takers if he charged less, but if he's selling out before the moulds die, I wish him well.  I can't really afford them & wish I could, but I won't worry too much.  I'll just oggle yours when you get them Lance!

Think Overkiller and Mossie might be interested in this, Fantastic Plastic are doing some Babylon 5 kits in 1/144th scale.
List so far is Thunderbolt Class Starfury, Minbari Nial Class, Narn Frazi Class and Zephyr 109 (better known as one of those triangular Raider jobbies).

Alfred Wong is doing the masters and here are the progress piccies. http://alfredsmind.ca/commissions/samples112.html
Small but I might actually be able to afford them in this scale!

To close out 2009, Fantastic Plastic Models presents the Boeing Blended-Wing Bomber concept in 1:144.

http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/Blended-WingBomberCatalogPage.htm (http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/Blended-WingBomberCatalogPage.htm)

This is a simple but highly accurate representation of the two-engined BWB Boeing proposed in 2000. The kit was created in CAD by Jonpage Risque (RetroRocket to his friends) and then finished and detailed by Mana Studios, which also did the casting. This being a "table top" model (no landing gear), we're including a two-piece display stand with nameplate. The JBOT decals include markings for three different strategic bomber squadrons.

The Blended-Wing Bomber kit sells for $75.00 plus postage (which is a bit higher than normal because it's a three-pound model!).

Oh, and don't let the 1:144 scale fool you -- this baby has a 17.5 inch wingspan!

I am certainly purchasing more models from Fantastic Plastic, especially the Hammerheads.  I did not spot any pinholes or bubbles as one expects to see in garage kits.  The only part I can criticize is the choice for what the actual colors are for the Hammerhead.  Decals are by JBOT.

Even the Star Wars A-wing is two F-14 center fuselages. But Lorimar (the production company behind Buck Rogers and the original BSG) was the worst (best?) for that. They were almost Gerry Anderson-like in their use of existing model kits.

If anyone cannot wait for next June or hates working resins, A 1/48th scale Gotha (Horten) 229 kit from Dragon (DML) can be converted into hydra.  There is very little outline differences of the airframe, just get some smaller scale engines. This is a lot like some of my whiffs using Revell and PM 229's in 1/72 to make 144th Horten bombers.

Neat.  Still haven't seen the flick but on the list.

So, checked their website, 1/288th scale with 22.5" wingspan.  That scales to 90 inches in 72nd scale and 540 feet in 1/1.  Big plane.

Re the XB-53, I think you'll find that the panel on each wing on the extreme ends are canards. When I made my model from the book of US Bombers, I couldn't understand what the end panels were for? I thought they were winglets that drooped, but the more I thought about it, to me they were canards, as they were forward of the leading edge of the wing. If they could have been adjusted to stop a stall....it would have made sense, well...it did to me!

These are the things that look like prop engines on the trailing edge of the big flying wing, and yes, the front end of each is a nuke..... :blink:

Gordon Bennet, that thing's astonishing!

Why the Treibflugel type 'prop-rotor' at the back? Does it do a vertical, nose first landing? And how does it take-off anyway?

Without having seen the movie or anything, I'm only guessing here, but since the single seater was mentioned as part of the bigger flying wing, I'd have to say that it's launched as part of that bigger plane, and functions as a pusher motor until it's dropped off to do it's attack run. If that's a nuke in the nose, survival of the pilot may not be that essential....

Post by: Weaver on April 12, 2012, 10:29:39 am
As Alvis suggests, I think you take off as part of the flying wing, separate, punt the warhead in the general direction of somewhere you don't like, then blow the rotors off and hit the silk. Whether you land intact or crispy depends on how big the warhead is and whether it's got a rocket or not.....

Just read in the July edition of the Airfix mag that FP are releasing the BAE/Hawker P1214 'X-wing' Harrier varient in Resin. Decals for 800 or 899 NAS, but no colour scheme details; we've gotta figure that out and no idea as to price either.

Update - Bugger, according to the website, it looks like it was released last year, but still no price of the FP website....

This looks impressive as all get out.  It's the wrong scale for me but it's still damn impressive!

Those canon look a tad overscale though.

Where did you find the turret details?  That's been one of the things which intrigued me the most about this version - the side turrets are absolutely huge!  I always wanted to know the details of those things.

It's about 3X bigger than a Shack' Paul, but a 1/72 Shackleton might be about right for a 1/144 scale Vickers C. Doing some scaling on a drawing I got from Tony Buttler, a B-52 fuselage works as a base for the fuselage. And I've got some 1/32 scale B-24 wings which seem to be about right too.

It's supposed to be able to carry two Grand Slams -----

Yeah, I know it's a lot bigger all round. It was going to take a LOT of cutting and shutting similar to what I did to a couple of B-29's. http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,28343.msg434533.html#msg434533
It would have needed widening and heightening (is that a real word!?), the B-52 fuselage sounds a lot easier!
