Hello Friends ... I just want to share one of my first ever vacform kits built back in 2002.... I hope you will enjoy :)
21. February, 12:29
Alec K
Wow, really impressive work on this vacuform kit. Not sure if I'll ever muster the courage and skill needed to try one. Are you the creator of these kits?
21. February, 14:26
Paul Juliano
What makes vacuform kits particularly challenging? I'm totally ignorant on the subject, but your kit looks nice!
21. February, 14:35
Paul Juliano
After looking at the other pics, wow! I get it!!
21. February, 14:37
Matthias Simon
At Alec K mate..... It is not so difficult as everybody tries to tell us. As I wrote in the description, it was one of the first vac kits I ever built. Most vac kits come without all the small parts like seats, landing gears aso.... but most modelers have some equal in their sparparts box. If not one has to scratch build these parts. f.e. landing gear. But that often is not so difficult, I just use plastic and/or brass tubes in various thicknesses.
THIS kit is a so called "combi-kit" ... also known as multimedia kit! Here are small parts in resin included, which makes it easier to build. Combi.kits are more expensive than normal vac kits (understandable :)

And YES ..... I am the producer of these/this kit .... my company is AIRMODEL PRODUCTS in germany :)

At Paul Juliano mate ...... Well .... the kits are defenitivly recommended for the more advanced modeler. I wouldn´t recommend them to absolute beginners. They need bit more work than normal injectionmolded kits and sometimes some scratchbuilding skills. But beside that.... as I already said in a previous post ..... not so difficult as some modelers saying. I have learned that cutting out and sanding the parts is nearly as fast as if I prepare an injection molded kitpart.
In the early days modelers often used a saw to separate the parts from the plate and that tooks in fact realy long.
I only mark the outline, scribe it 2-3 times with a dull knife and break the parts appart. Then removing the thickness fracture roughly and sand it on 80 grid sandpaper for a view seconds to the final shape and ready! Other moderlers may use different techniques, but as the saying is "there are many ways leading to Rome" :)

Thanks for the advice and info Matthias. Very impressive selection of items you have, definitely will add to my resource list. Cheers, Alec.

Cool project . And what a weird concept...
25. January, 14:26

..... and it flew actualy several times in different configurations :) Though with poor results.

Aiming it at the target must have been an interesting problem to solve :D
25. January, 22:40
Matthias Simon
... it never even came to that :) The flight was so instable and dangerous that it nearly crashed several times.

For those of us who don't know, what does that thing on the nose accomplish?
28. January, 01:08
Matthias Simon
I wrote it in the album description :)

The Me 262 V-2 in stage 2 was fitted with fin on its fuselage nose for unknown measurements. It is believed that this was a acoustic test measurement
28. January, 01:31
Matthias Simon
Also.... it wasn´t the original Me 262 V-2.. it was a later Me 262 A-1a which was renamed to V-2

Thank you for your comments.... in the meantime I made some improvements and added also the wires for the radio transmission aso.
I also use a small "axle-stand" for the tube like it was used originally too.

20. January, 21:03
Matthias Simon
Thank you. :) It's all in my head and wants to come out. You may understand what kind of a mess it's inside of my head. ;)

To be honest.... I´m happy my eye catches all these little details out of the reference photos and books available. Still so many ideas and only 2 hands to work with....

20. January, 23:34
Spanjaard
excellent!
21. January, 00:08
Matthias Simon
Thank you Spanjaard..... though I planed to add much more details to make it more interresting.... Never had the time for that so it went to the display stand in a somewhat unfinished stage :(
23. January, 13:26
Spanjaard
you can still do that ;)
24. January, 21:30
Matthias Simon
I could :) If I would have enough time. But one never know!!! The shown diorama was basicaly built to show it on exhibitions for selling the product itself and for that it worked. But something always inside of me never was completely satisfied not having finished the built with details.

Looking good. did this exist? I knew they had some ambulance pods on a Polikarpov Po-2 ...
16. January, 16:30
Matthias Simon
Thank you ... yes it existed and it flew. They also are called "agent-pods" for an obvious reason :)- It first was tested and flown on a Klemm KL 35 or 25. Pictures in the internet can be found from both airplanes.
16. January, 20:45

Wow !! I did that conversion back in the '70's when I was in high school. I actually used the Frog kit. I must say yours turned out much better looking then mine. Thanks for the flashback :)
16. January, 22:01
Guy Rump
Really interesting subject and impressive model :)
16. January, 22:07
Matthias Simon
Thank you... in fact I revised the molds and turned them from a positive mold to a more accurate and modern negativ mold which improved the product itself.
