A nice slew of new products on hand.

IN-202 will be replacing IN-201. IN-202 are magnets, 3/16″ diameter x 1/16 ” thick (4.8 x 1.5mm), replacing the 3/16″ diameter x .8mm thick magnets. Packaging and price stay the same, 50 magnets for $10. Once IN-201 is out of stock, they won’t be restocked. For them moment, you can find them on sale on this site or in the surplus bin of our ‘shopping cart’, the ekm powercart site.

New – IN-203.  1/4″ dia (6.4mm) spherical magnet. Pricing will be 6 for $6.00. These have a number of uses and will mate up with flight stand and aircraft adaptors to permit the planes to show roll/pitch/yaw. Tested for 4+ years now – if you’ve seen one of the games we run at a convention, that’s it.

New- FS-5. A pack of 12 pcs of a stand adaptor meant to fit a 1/8″ (3.1mm) rod and seat a 1/4″(6/3mm) spherical magnet. Slips over rod for fast and secure mounting. Pricing is 12 pcs for $10.

FS-10.  A pack of 12 pcs of a miniature mounted adaptor. A steel product, this permits the aircraft miniature to show roll, pitch and yaw.  Glues into hole in bottom of miniature and is magnetically attached to stand. Pack of 12 is $10.

You’ll  need 1 pack for every 12 stands or every 12 planes. You will also need 1 pack of 6 pcs (IN-203) spherical magnets for every 6 stands.

For 24 stands, 4 packs IN-203, 2 packs FS-5 are needed. Then, for every 12 planes, 1 pack of FS-10.

Historicon Update & New Releases

As a number of folks know, this is ‘The Side Job’ and from time to time, takes 2nd place to ‘Ye Olde Realle Jobbe’. Which explains lack of updates in May and June.

Historicon – next week, July 18-21 in Fredericksburg, VA. We are booth 203, so 2nd aisle, 2nd row. Corner booth.

New releases

We redid the masters and molds for most of the March releases in order to produce a more robust gaming miniature. These will be available at Historicon

JAP 19 – G4M1 Betty    $6.00

JAP 20 – G4M2 Betty    $6.00

New Decals & Reprints

ITA 005,  MC 202 Folgore is here .

MC 202 pictures are on the websites

New decals are here.

Upgrade / reprints – BR 105, British 15mm armor insignia and rankings.  BR 106 is an upgrade / reprint. Now includes the Australian aircraft codes and roundals printed together, and the squadron codes support the Check Your 6! book Road to Rabaul

BR 126 is new. It is for British 1/285 – 6mm armor and has national insignia and rankings  Long requested, it’s finally available,

AL104 is an improvement of AL 102, so much so we’re obsolescing it immediately. Al-104 is intended to remedy the opacity problem of AL 102. WWI insignia for US, Brits, French aircraft. As insignia are geometry and scale easily, these are suitable for 1/100-1/160 minis.

MI 116 covers 1/600-1./200 aircraft models (modern insignia are terribly small) for Pakistan, Iran and India. Addresses aircraft in the upcoming CY6 book, ‘Crisis in Kashmir’.

MI117 covers 1/600- 1/200 aircraft models for Jordan, Turkey and Libya. Forgive me, a typo is on the sheet description and should read ‘Turkey, Libya and Jordan’.

The Jordanian insignia are 2 piece affairs, with the wedge needng to be placed on the roundal / fin flash. Registration accuracy forced it into a 2 pc decal.

See the decal scans page and click on the item in question.
