ya-gabor Posted January 31, 2021 Share Posted January 31, 2021 From AMK boss Mr. Sio comes a new brand of products under SIO MODELS name. This includes individual aftermarket products but also cooperation with the original AMK brand kits like the two MiG-31 kits released under joint AMK/SIO MODELS name. The kits differ from previous releases in that they have a set of additional aftermarket 3D printed parts including jet engine exhaust, detailed ejection seats, landing gear and the on board gun which can be shown separately without its covers. They also include a set of painting masks. My only question is how strong will the undercarriage legs be? We know that this 48 th kit is fairly heavy and there were problems with the plastic gear legs in the past. But we will see. . . The 3D printed parts come in their own self containing “frames” for protection. In the future the Sio Models range is supposed to include aftermarket parts for both AMK kits but also for other manufacturers products. It is in some way a similar business model as that of Eduard where a plastic kit is produced and depending on individuals taste aftermarkets for extra detailing can be purchased. Here is a views of how the frame contains parts for another new set of 3D printed radar units of 3 versions for the AMK kit and other makers also. As far as its is known these MiG-31 “special” kit boxings will be available in a limited 500 piece series. Best regards Gabor Quote Link to post Share on other sites
