They do one in 1/144 and one in 1/48.  Hobbycraft do one in 1/72

OzMods latest releases are repackagings of the 1/48 and 1/144 Caribou, and correction nacelles for the Italeri 1/72 C-130J Herc. Two other releases - 1/144 C-2A Greyhound conversion and 1/48 Vultee Vengeance correction - are due for release by September. A new 120 mm ANZAC figure - sculpted by Phil Walden - will also be released in the same time scale.

The 1/48 Caribou (vacs, resin, metal, decals) has been revised with decals for all five of the RAAF's "45 years service"/Retirement schemes, as well as one each for the USAF and Air America. Most of the production run was presold, and at the time of writing only a dozen kits remain.

The 1/144 Caribou (resin with metal and optional vac canopy) now comes with new screen printed decals: Covering the five aircraft for the RAAF "45 years service"/retirement scheme, and one each for the USAF and the Spanish Air Force.

The 1/72 C-130J nacelle correction pack (resin) for the Italeri kit comprises four nacelles, four spinners and 24 blades, and four vent doors - the pack also includes detailed instructions on stretching the Italeri kit to the long fuselage -30 model.

For release by the end of June is a C-2A Greyhound conversion for the Revell 1/144 Hawkeye kit. This comprises are clear injected fuselage, injected tailplane and cargo doors, and resin detail cockpit and aerials. Also included in this pack are screen printed decals for the US Navy VRC-30 Det 5.

Also due for release by the Queensland Model Hobbies Expo in early September is a total correction set for the 1/48 Vultee Vengeance. This resin pack comprises a completely corrected/reshaped fuselage (with side wall detail), reshaped nacelle with engine and propeller, fully detailed cockpit (with pilot's seat, panel, controls, nav/gunner's detailed compartment), detailed bomb bay with doors and bomb (with choice of US or RAF fins), various bulkheads, flattened main wheels ... and a few other bits and pieces. The parts are already in production, and waiting for build photos and instructions to be organised.

Full details on these new products from ozmods@bigpond.net.au

Hi Cliffy:

Yes, it is out ... but haven't done much about promoting it because we are currently in Seattle (USA) on our way to US IPMS Nationals in Florida next week.  There is a bit about it on Kampfluggen144, and in our section of the 'Forum' on Aussie Modeller Internation web sites.  Sorry I can't give web addresses - travelling very light.  If you want one, please email ozmods@bigpond.net.au and we will get it to you in a couple of weeks (we're back in Australia about 15 August).  Greg A.

Thanks Brian.  Compliments always appreciated.  Last night did a modelers' meet here in Seattle at the Museum of Flight (North Western Modelers).  Great bunch of guys (and a couple of gals).  What an incredible venue to have meetings, you folk sure have it lucky!

Hello Greg, and welcome to the forum.

I've got a question, do you still do the 1/72 Lincoln B.31 conversion ? (the long nose)

Hi Robert:  We didn't do it, but I think Paragon had it for both 1/72 and 1/48.  Don't know if they are still available.

Greg,
Nice seeing you here.

I met Greg at Fantasy of Flight during the Nats earlier this month.  Pretty good guy in my opinion.

Just got to get him doing more 72nd...

The new OzMods' web site went live today! The address is still the same - http://www.ozmods-kits.com - but the host server is new. The new site is a completely different format to before. In a nutshell, it's mostly photos and info of products. In fact, for the first time we have virtually all products with photos (except for some of the smaller 1/144 weapons). In particular, all the Scaledown items are now in photos. The home page will feature regular updates of new products, news of forthcoming items, etc. Please check it out, and bookmark it!

OzMods' latest 120 mm Military Figure has just been released. This resin kit is titled, "River Crossing", and depicts an Aussie Digger (with Owen Gun) crossing a river in New Guinea during WWII. It's yet another example of Phil Walden's remarkable talent, and presents a dramatic and emotional image. Kit is Aus$45 plus post. It's already up on our web site at http://www.ozmods-kits.com  Can be purchase with any credit card or PayPal to ozmods@bigpond.net.au

(Post and packing:  Within Australia Aus$9; to NZ Aus$12; to Pacific Rim Aus$15; to North America Aus$16; to Europe, UK and Rest of World Aus$18.)

OzMods has just released three sets of turbine exhaust pipes that will set your 1/72 C-130 a, E, H and J models apart from the rest! John Guyer, who did our brilliant nacelle corrections for the Italeri 1/72 C-130J kit, has done it again with these highly refined and detailed pipes. They are OZCONV7212 for the C-130J, and OZCONV7213 for the C-130E/H. Price is Aus$5.50 for a set of four. (The OzMods' C-130A conversion pack also has four exhaust pipes peculiar to this model.) See them on http://www.ozmods-kits.com

Forgot to mention to all and sundry a couple of months back (which probably explains why not many have been sold), but we've added a 1/144 Pave Tack Pod to our 1/144 list of products. Price is a princely Aus$1.50.
