BAM News - 1/48 AARGM-ER released!


Recommended Posts

  • 5 weeks later...

@Captain Tyler made me realize I had forgotten to announce our October releases, sorry about that, talk about business vs passion!

 

This time we covered the most advanced Super Hornet features to date. Although some were not operationally adopted they still look pretty cool IMHO 😉

I hope you like them,

This is all utterly amazing, Arnaud!! 

 

CFTs look spot on! Same for the pods!

 

All we need now are the decals!

These look great, but there is no aftermarket nose gear doors for current block F/A-18E. None of the kits currently available have this detail and its very noticeable when studying photos. Im sure you scratch build it, but it looks like a lot of trial and error work that would make an aftermarket option that much more appreciated.

  • arnobiz changed the title to BAM News - (hopefully) temporary closure

Dear friends,

 

Due to changes in my personal situation I will need to mark a pause in BAM's operations as of November 30th. While I hope the pause won't last long (still so many product ideas!) I have unfortunately very little visibility at this time. Which is why I wanted to give everyone a chance to get one of our sets, just in case.

 

The website (bam-models.com) will remain operational and all instructions will be accessible, just the shop will be closed as of 15-20 November depending on the order backlog.

 

I am aware some instructions are still missing and I apologize about this. At this time I am focusing on one final development, missing instructions will be done asap but possibly as late as December


Thanks everyone for your understanding and support!

 

Arnaud

  • arnobiz changed the title to BAM News - back with new prototype/early F-14A sets!

Dear friends,

 

We're back and we used the time off well, with a new suite of sets for the prototype and early production F-14A Tomcat 🙂

 

So what do we have on the menu? Early wing gloves, early beaver tails with or without dielectric panels, test pitot probe, RIO windshield, short gun muzzle panels, early chinpods and more... You can see all available options here: https://bam-models.com/product-category/f-14/

It’s still there, go to the last item under the F-15, “The next generation”, select options, and it will then let you choose sub set option SG.

Order placed!  BTW, have you stopped doing the F-15SG conversion for the Revell/Mongram kit?

Thank you Jens! The SG sets are still there, although I'm thinking of retiring them as they're quite a hassle to produce and don't sell that much anyway 😄

NOICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Items like this are why I got out of the aftermarket business. My crappy old hand-made masters can't compare to beautifully rendered, 3D printed pieces of art like this. I may need to build another prototype now!

Thank you so much Darren, you don't know how much this means to me. Your sets paved the way, to this day I have no idea how you managed to make symmetrical parts manually 🤩

If I recall, many of the SG parts could be used to upgrade the Revell kit to the current active duty F-15E configuration.  How about remix of the necessary parts into a Revell F-15E update set?

@arnobiz I'm wondering if you ever considered F-15 FAST packs?  I'd like them to fit a Hasegawa F-15, but sized to fit the GWH would probably be more marketable, no idea if the same would fit both. They are useful for some USAF F-15C/Ds or in Israeli service.  In 1/48 the only ones I know of are in some early boxings of Hasegawa's 1/48 F-15E. I was working to get a pair from another member and then he quit responding to messages.
