FAR Resin Is now out of business
« on: March 06, 2018, 08:55:34 PM »
Stumbled across this while perusing the interwebz. 

https://farresin.com/

Proprietor currently has a small inventory, but it's exclusively WhIf material - weapons and pods to hang on your projects.

There is also a conversion set to make the RoKAF T-50 (Academy kit) into an F/A-50.

Over on ARC, a forward swept wing conversion for the T-50 is also discussed.

Some interesting stuff there.  The FA-50 conversion would also be useful to make a T-50A (strong candidate to replace the T-38 in USAF service):





I am also loving their proposed FSW F-CK-1 conversion:

Okay. It's my turn to say: "Wrong scale!"   :'(
Work in progress ::

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

I am already pondering if the FSW F-CK-1 conversion could be adapted to an F-16. Or F/A-18. For...reasons.

Will you be doing any stores pylons for the TSR.2?  Something that is not in abundance in the kit or as aftermarket items in the preferred scale of 1:48.

Interesting work Steven  :D

About the TSR.2, I see that you made a new nose. Will it keep the original shape (w/ some improvement I guess) or is it a new shape one ? I have a Dynavector which is looking for a new nose  :-[

F/A-50 seems also to be really interesting  :-* (will have to find a 3rd kit now  :P)

A set of weapon pylons will be available in each set as well as sold separately.

Good to hear that the stores pylons will be available separately.  I have two of the Airfix kits that are in need of these items.

Hmmm...the F/A-50 might also be the basis for a carrier based version with folding wing tips.

I actually have two fictional nose cones in the works.

I'm either getting a F-CK-1C just to put this conversion on it, or I'll attempt to adapt the conversion to another plane; but I'm saving my pennies for this conversion.
