Aftermarket bits for the Typhoon

Postby morrigan » Sat Aug 16, 2014 9:01 pm

With a steady stream of goodies popping up for Airfix's big Typhoon, I thought a place to list any findings will be for useful Tiffie builders.
All are welcome to add their own findings to this thread.

Live Resin
1/16 .50 M2 ammunition belt
As there is no 1/24 ammo belts for the Tiffie yet, a scan through ammo belts in 1/24 and above with a little mathematics, reveals that 20mm ammo in 1/24 is 9mm long, 1/16 .50 ammo scales out as,is you guessed it ...9mm long!

Never seen a resin canopy before ! Thought it might be a bit thick, but probably easier to use than a vac formed one.
Cheers

I ordered a canopy set from A2Zee recently for my Kittyhawk T-6 Texan (no glasshouse canopy included in the kit :angry-banghead: )
The parts are crystal clear and similar in thickness to injection molded parts, with a pour stub that requires removal with a razor saw. You also get a set of canopy and wheel masks in the box too. :D

Needless to say I'm going to get the Tiffie canopy!

Barracuda cast had a few bits at Telford.

Here's the carburettor intake ring and wheels

They will also be doing (not there, otherwise I would have bought them) upgrades for the gun bays and undercarriage bays.

Miracle Masks paint masks for camouflage, invasion stripes, canopy & clear parts, leading edges, wheels and all insignia. The whole set was £28 (show offer) and he will do individual aircraft ID letters for another £6. He also says he'll do artwork, as long as you supply the research.

Pictures sorted. :roll: There are links to the Hannants pages for the Eduard stuff further up the thread.

But we may have lost one upgrade. The guy behind A2Zee has closed down, so the Alley Cat canopy is no longer available. He's sold all his moulds to someone else, but when production re-starts, I have no idea. All his existing stock was sold to Hannants. Most of it has gone already. I know, I tried to get some. :angry-banghead:

Here's the text of the letter he posted on the Hannans site last week:

Message from A2Z Models... A2Zee Models announcement as of the 31st October 2014
Well the waiting is over, it has been a crazy 20 days since the last announcement that I made on the 11th, so much has happened and changed in a very short space of time, mostly for the good, so as one chapter closes a few new ones open.
Firstly I would like to thank everybody for their support not only over the last few seeks but for many years, direct customers, trade customers and to my suppliers, all of whom have helped in many ways.
Closing of A2Zee Models was not an easy decision for me to make but it was one that had to be made for a few reasons, so once the decision was made the chapter started unrolling at a very fast rate, so with all that is happened I can now say where things are at and what will be happening in the future. I will be breaking this down into three areas so please take note of each.
Alley Cat
I am pleased to announce that most of the Alley Cat patterns have been purchased by Alec Smith and he will be continuing the Alley Cat brand in the future. Alec has decided to now call his company Alley Cat Models, so in time the name A2Zee Models will be no more. I wish him all the best and I will be doing my best to transfer all products and information to him to enable a smooth start. There is still some final arrangements to be made between Alec and I so the Alley Cat range will not be available immediately, so please be patient, I am sure Alec will keep you all informed as his new venture progresses. I do hope that all of you will support Alec in his new venture and he already has some of his own ideas for future releases. In the meantime Alec can be contacted at the following email address AlleyCatModels@outlook.com
Rotor Craft
I am pleased to announce that a deal was secured through Colin Burgess (Rotor Craft) and Colin Strachan of Freightdog Models, so the Rotor Craft patterns and name will now be in the hands of Colin. Once again I wish Colin well and will assist him in the same way for a smooth transition. Freightdog can be contacted via freightdog@btopenworld.com
Alistair McLean
Lastly a quick note about my future. Well a few weeks ago it was very uncertain, and as of now it looks like I will still be around in the model making world, so you have not got rid of me as yet. I hope to continue to do some casting work, mainly clear casting but some general casting as well. However quite a few opportunities have opened up for me to do pattern making for other companies and this includes possibly developing new products for Alec and Colin. There are other prospects as well for other companies so it looks as if I could be extremely busy, and I am looking forward to using more of my creative ability and hopefully I will start building models again for my own enjoyment. My new contact email address is as follows, uc27studio@gmail.com
Well that is the end of the story and this will be my last announcement from A2Zee Models and Alley Cat. I will be visiting SMW at Telford next weekend and I am really looking forward to meeting with many of you and this time I think I will really enjoy the show.
Cheers Alistair

A pity to hear that A2Zee is gone, hopefully we shall see the canopies reappear under the Alley cat banner as theres still a huge demand for the tiffie canopy!
