Post by: Maverick on February 27, 2009, 08:17:16 pm
G'day Gang,

Modelversium has a review of the new ICM He-70F.  Looks like the still lovely Matchbox kit can be retired.  Great news for those who've been perusing the thread on the aircraft.

I think I'd still prefer the Matchbox offering as you get the option of thr radial engine version as well.
Title: Re: ICM
Post by: Mossie on February 28, 2009, 09:14:54 am
I don't think the Matchbox version will be going anywhere in a hurry, especially as the Revell boxing is 5 as opposed to ICM's 15!  I think you get the radial engine in the Revell kit too.  Be good for those who aren't afraid to shell out a bit more refined kit.

The Revell kit does have the radial engine.

Aeroscale says ICM are releasing a Soviet Air to Air Missile weapons set, not sure but I think it's been out before?

I was looking through the Squadron site last night, and I noticed they have a bunch of ICM stuff on sale.  Most of the sales are the 10-25% off variety, but some items are deeply discounted, like 65% or more off.  What initially prompted my interest was a listing on the site for their 1/35 Beobachtungspanzer Panther.  This is an artillery observation vehicle built on a Panther chassis.  The kit normally goes for about $50, but the Squadron have it for $15.  Might be an inexpensive way to get the Panther chassis without shelling out for the whole tank.

http://www.squadron.com/ItemDetails.asp?item=ICM35571

It took some searching, but I also found their 1/72 weapons sets, one for air-to-air and one for air-to-ground.
Title: Re: ICM
Post by: chrisonord on July 09, 2010, 03:06:37 pm
I have both the sets, and they are pretty good quality. The air to air set has the most missiles in it, and is worth the cash. The air to ground set has some good modern stuff but not as many compared to the air to air set.

That looks good, and it's the 'production' version with the canards too, unlike the VEB 1/100 scale prototype. Lots of scope there to cross-kit with a Concorde as well.

What was the name of the Tupolev supersonic bomber?  Looks a bit like a Valkyrie crossed with Concorde?
Title: Re: ICM
Post by: deathjester on August 15, 2011, 02:09:01 pm
Sukhoi T-4 would be the Valkyrie look alike.
Title: Re: ICM
Post by: The Wooksta! on August 15, 2011, 02:17:09 pm
That's the one.  An airliner version of that would be much more fun.
Title: Re: ICM
Post by: Green Dragon on August 15, 2011, 02:19:48 pm
Sounds like Sukhoi's T-4 Lee, if it's the design that was built and flown. Pretty sure General Melchett made one.
Tupolev did design a four engined canard/delta bomber in the late 50's early 60's called the Tu125 but it wasn't built IIRC.

Shame it costs thirty quid over here and about a tenner (actually about 11.30) in Russia! Prob get one but I'd get quite a few if we got it for the Russian price.

Hannants have dropped the price of the Tu144 to 22.99, still prefer it at 11.30 though!

That's the earlier, non-canard, version, but it's not the prototype. That had all four of its engines in one big box housing under the centre of the fuselage.

Even MORE cross-kitting possibilities!
Title: Re: ICM
Post by: Hobbes on April 09, 2012, 08:42:17 am
They're listing it as the Tu-144D, which was the later version with better engines.

There are some things you would never ever expect to see by a mainstream manufacturer and this comes along  :o Rekindles your faith in human enterprise  ;D

Mind you I suppose from ICM's point of view Austria-Hungary was very important on the WWI Eastern Front so local builders ?
Title: Re: ICM
Post by: rickshaw on July 18, 2013, 05:22:11 pm
Thing is, if we think WWI Austro-Hungarian models are rare, imagine what it must be like for people from the former Empire who want to model it.  Must be hell for them, seeing endless UK/US/German/Russian/etc., stuff rolling out of the moulds and virtually nothing about their own history.  It is good to see something different for a change.  A lot of that can, of course be used for Germans in WWII.
Title: Re: ICM
Post by: NARSES2 on July 19, 2013, 12:50:26 am
Your right mate. There have been Austro-Hungarian built aircraft from WWI in both 1/72 and 1/48 and now we are starting to see some Eastern European built armour in 1/35 like the Toldi and it's siblings. All good news for modellers everywhere
