Returning to Red Roo Models in October

Three old friends have returned to Red Roo this month:

Our highly detailed A.N.A.R.E. Dakota Conversion in 1/72 scale is back in stock. This conversion has been re-engineered to adapt it for use with the new 1/72 scale Airfix C-47 kit. Those modellers who still have the Italeri kit in their stash can use this conversion without fear as it will still fit that earlier kit. The conversion is suitable for experienced scale modellers and comprises resin, plastic and metal parts, decals and a highly detailed instruction booklet.

The DC-4 Conversion for the Mach 2 1/72 scale DC-4 kit has made a long awaited return. The conversion provides a slew of resin parts to improve the kit: engines, cowls, exhausts, nose cone, propellers (and a mounting jig), hubs, astrodome and flight-deck canopy.

Our highly detailed 1/48 scale Wirraway Detail Set is the final returnee for October. This comprehensive multimedia set is designed for the Special Hobby 1/48 scale CA-9 Wirraway kit. The set includes correct cowling, oil cooler air intakes, tail-planes, PE gun sights, ‘storepedoes’, engine cylinder baffles, an engine mount, pilot’s headrest, compass mount, cockpit steps, etc. I highly detailed full colour instruction sheet is included to aid the modeller in super detailing his Wirraway project.
