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:

By the way, the "Proprietor" is Steven (aka FAR148) who is a member here already. :smiley:

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'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.

Hello Steven,

Your TSR.2 set looks gorgeous  :-*

Do you other variants of this set in plan ?
I see that the set is based on the Airfix kit, do you think that it will be OK for a Dynavector one too ?
Do you have photo with the longer nose cone you offer in the set ?
Last question, do you have any idea for shipping cost to France ?

Thanks in advance for your reply  :D

Thanks for the reply Steven :smiley:

Shipping cost are a little expensive but now that I know you are from USA, I'm not surprised... It is always expensive to order in USA from France :icon_crap:
The longer nose looks really good on the aircraft, thanks for the pic. I will have to check about the difference between Airfix & Dynavector but as far as I remember, the front fuselage is narrower on the Airfix.

Yes, I have plans for an EF-TSR.2 that includes a new tail with the "football", belly canoe, an AGM-78 Standard MKII with launch rail and a USAF type air-to-air refueling receptacle. All the master parts are done, wait to see how sells go with GR.4 set before I start molding and casting.

Are you able to share photos of the master parts?  Very interested in this one as I plan to do a Italian EF-TSR.2 in this scheme:

Seeing your JP233 makes me wish I had never purchased all of those horrible Airfix Tornado kits just for the weapons. 

I hope that you find the time to focus on possible upgrades to the 1/48th scale HobbyBoss F-23 kit as it really needs some attention,  Wing pylons for fuel and weapons are a high on my wish list.

I'm curious, what items would you guys like to see me offer in 1/48 scale?

Oh, the possibilities....

Are you able to provide any sort of boundaries/restrictions?  For instance, size limitations, types of product?  Era?

Well, I, for one, would like to see some AGM-137A TSSAM missiles as stores.  I can advise on how to tweak the available drawing to show the "carry" configuration as opposed to the "flying" configuration of the 3-view.  I also can advise on what and where to modify for an extended range version that was studied for a proposal to the RAF.

A second item I'd love to see was the Northrop-Ventura ND-1 proposal for an integral rocket-ramjet powered submunitions dispenser that could be conformally carried on even a F-3E/F-20 class aircraft.

One item that would, IMHO, be interesting would be an AIM-54X Phoenix-ER missile in which the solid rocket motor is replaced by an integral rocket-ramjet motor with four intakes at the leading edges of the fins, somewhat in the Russian style used on the Kh-31. Alternatively, a different Phoenix ER with a booster stage added.  Or, combine the two for a Phoenix-XLR with both the booster stage and the integral rocket-ramjet motor.

For people who want a different-looking AAM, an AIM-162 air-launched version of the main stage of the RIM-162 ESSM.

Going back a ways, how about a 1/48 AAM-N-10 Eagle

Final thought would be operational variants of the Vought ALVRJ test vehicle, either for ASM or AAM purposes.

One I would love to see would be a conversion to do a Westland Wyvern TF.1 with the original RR Eagle engine:




Also, just a simple Mistel Conversion nose & support struts (thus saving the purchase of entire kits):



One can get these in 1/72 and 1/32 but I don't believe there is anything in 1/48 that doesn't require the purchase of a full kit with the aircraft.

The hsiung feng III from Taiwan looks very similar.
Definitely a resemblance.  Be interesting to see an air-launched variant of the Hsiung Feng III carried under a F-CK-1C or -1D; more likely a pair, one under each wing.

A couple more suggestions in 1/48:

Conversion to do a 1/48 Panavia Tornado 2000:




Conversion to do a 1/48 MiG-21-93 or MiG-21 "Bison":





Conversion to do a 1/48 Mirage F1-M53/F1E - in other words, the slightly stretched SNECMA M53 powered version that was offered to the Europeans in the '70s in competition to the F-16:




F-16-79 with GE J-79 engine:
