These guys make some very nice styrene and photo etch soviet/Russian aircraft weapons as well as some vehicle bits and....some interesting U.S/NATO weapons including, Helicopter mount miniguns with ammo boxes in 1/72nd scale, which I know for sure I will be buying several sets of these as they will be of use on U.S and Honduras Helicopters and vehicles as well as mounted on fast attack boats.

CGI art is getting that much closer to being indistinguishable from a real photo.
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

'Course have to wonder how much better it is than the old Inpact/Pyro/Lifelike/Lindbergh
which can be found pretty easily for a lot less than $45USD.

.. and the old Pyro job I have half finished maybe consigned to the shelfo-o-doom
however I have to say, there is nothing terribly wrong with the Pyro offering.

I've read some concern over certain dimensions of the kit on other forums but, man, I want one!
