  1. After quite a bit of research, we found the Su-11 cockpit to be quite a bit different from the Su-9. The Su-11 not only has a completely different instrument panel and radar scope because of the newer radar installed in the type. The port console is pretty much entirely new. The CAD guys are working on that cockpit now, so I expect to have renderings to show soon.
  2. There are plenty of photos of the resin on our page - including a build-up of the exhaust. I am working on better photos of the cockpit now. The seat does not have PE belts - but that's a function of the KS seats not really having a harness - as best as we can tell, the pilots wore the harness to the aircraft and was "clipped" into the seat, much like the F-100.
  3. Hey guys - wanted to drag this thread back up to announce that these sets are finished through production and shipping now! I'll post more photos when I can get them loaded to some place that they can be shared here, but for now: Our web store where you can order the parts: http://www.redstarscalemodels.com/category-s/109.htm We have also launched 1:48 MiG-31 wheels for the AMK kit - the improve the kit wheels by adding the missing tire details, and are also one piece, removing the assembly hassle. You can find photos on our website, and PLENTY of material on our Facebook page - search Red Star Scale Models. More soon!
  4. Sorry to hear that paint in the mail is hard to do. But at least it sounds like there are still shops around up there. In our case the US hobby shop is getting harder and harder to find. I have to either source paint from one of our distributors or mail order a specialty brand.
  5. Guys - I hate to say it, but MM paint is yesteryear's technology. Once you try some of the newer paint available, you'll quickly figure out why it's really no big loss for those to be going away. And regardless of whether you try MR Paint or not - between Vallejo, Akan, MIG, AK, and all the other brands that have been springing up over the last few years, you'll be shocked at how much better they are.
  6. Shawn ordered some of the exhausts himself - so I'll be interested to hear what he has to say. The feedback I received so far is that they're very useful for the Hasegawa and Kinetic kits as they're custom fit to those models. Several customers should have them in hand by now, so hopefully there will be some good feedback soon!
  7. Yes, we have also recommended several other US FS numbers to be included in the range, so stay tuned for updates! Also for the person that referenced the Russian colors - in the MM rack most of them are poor matches - Both MR Paint and AKAN are superior on this front.
  8. RF-84 is due literally any day, and right now we have a special going with the 10% off coupon where you can pre-order at the lower price. Like we did with the MiG-31 and Su-33, these will ship the day they arrive here.
  9. Hey guys - We just got in the latest F-16 updates from KASL. This time brings three new 1:48 Pratt & Whitney F100 exhausts - one for each of the major kit manufacturers: Tamiya, Hasegawa and Kinetic. If you haven't see their other updates, you're in for a treat - one piece noses, early tails and backdate sets and more. Also the earlier families of parts for the F-35, F-5 and more. You can find them all on our website: http://www.redstarscalemodels.com/category-s/114.htm We'll have another update shortly on our 1:48 Su-9 and MiG-31 parts, as well as a TON of information on MR Paint, which we are bringing into the US market for the first time! Drop me a line if you have any questions!
  10. Good afternoon friends - Quick update that we have just received a fresh shipment from KASL - this includes three new sets of PW F-16 exhausts for the various 1:48 kits. Also back in stock are the popular F-86 updates. If you haven't tried KASL yet, take a look through our online catalog - the stuff is just superb. If you're building a AFV Club F-5 or a Kitty Hawk F-35, you definitely need to have a look! Also check out our kit clearance sale, use coupon code KitClearance10 for an extra 10% off in-stock kits and pre-orders! https://www.redstarscalemodels.com KASL Page: http://www.redstarscalemodels.com/category-s/114.htm We will have updates early next week on our long awaited Su-9 resin updates and new 1:48 MiG-31 wheels for the AMK kit. Also lots of news around MR Paint as we continue to bring that into the US market! And as always follow us on Facebook: Red Star Scale Models
  11. Agreed - this was 1:32 F11F, not F11F..... There's still hope of 1:48 F11F, so we'll have to wait and see. Hopefully KH will have something to show us at Nationals here in ten days!
  12. No, they will be available via many traditional outlets, but as far as this first premiere of the kit, we will be the only ones with the kit at the big IPMS show - IF - they're finished in time. Much as I'd like to have an exclusive on the F-20, it should be available via all the same outlets where the X-47B was.
  13. Aires is a mixed bag, I've ruined some models with Aires, but then I've also had some sets - particularly their newer sets - that were snap fits to their kits. I know that all of the kit parts were carefully measured, both the original cockpit and the inside of the fuselage. We did not laser scan, but did ever bit of measurement we could to ensure a good fit. In fact, the very reason we did NOT chose to do wheel wells for this bird was because there was just no way to make a practical resin part that could be fit into the wings without destroying the kit parts.
  14. My intent is to have these available at the IPMS/USA show next month, so very soon!
  15. Yes, these are already heading to casting for resin duplication. Unfortunately to print at this resolution is just too expensive to duplicate the parts for resale. Hopefully in the coming years, that won't be the case!
