Red Star 47 Release Updates

[singlepic id=620 w=420 h= float=]

Due to a delay in the Squid Sub digital master, the Red Star 47 is getting bumped up to Late Summer 2012. Augustish we think. I know it’s hard to wait, but meanwhile enjoy these images of the two figure sets that will be available alongside the release as well as a few color-schemes. Price TBD.

New ‘Red Star 47’ Images and Figure Sets

[singlepic id=472 w=420 h= float=]

Christophe Desse uploaded and sent me more images of the upcoming 1/35 scale Red Star Flyer and the two figure sets that will be available with it. You can see the added detail on the flyer coupled with photoetch for some of the thinner detailed parts and this will be a very cool release. A seated pilot figure will be included. Two additional figure sets designed by Christophe will be available as well.

iMech News 2.15.2101

Another month and time for another iMech news update! This time we show off some Ian McQue’s Remora build-ups and the latest for the upcoming  figure, set, a cool new Flyer from Christophe Desse, and the long awaited progress shots of Scott Robertsons Orbship!

Christophe Desse’s Red Star 47

[singlepic id=398 w=420 h= float=]

I first saw a photo of this cool Russian looking flyer by Christophe Desse, a 3D artist for Naughtydog, a few years back on the Concept Ships blog. I loved the design, saved it to my HD, but thought I was looking at a photo of a finished model kit so I didn’t attempt to contact Christophe about producing it. Luckily, he contacted us and as it turns out, the image was not a finished model, just a 3D render made to look like a completed toy/model.

Christophe has been hard at work making small design changes to the flyer and designing all new figures to go with the kit. Look for the Red Star 47 flyer to be available for preorder November 2012.

KIT RELEASE DATE: November 2012
KIT SCALE: 1/35

Scott Robertson’s Orbship

[singlepic id=141 w=420 h= float=]

Been a while since we had news of this, but here are some in-progress renders of Scott Robertson’s 1/48 scale Orbship. Scott is still fine-tuning and adding details and 3D artist friend of his is working on a figure to accompany it.

Adrian Smith’s Frankenstein

Frankie is at the caster slated for an April 2012 release. Meanwhile I’ve been working on gathering materials and doing the print work for the kit. Because it’s really cool, I wanted to show off the chain maille that will come with the kit. It’s hard to see in the renders, but there’s a bit of maille under the belt and shoulder armor. Each kit will come with a 3 inch square sheet of 1/8″ steel ring maille to use to complete the kit.

Ian McQue Figure Set #1

Here’s a few shots of the 3rd figure in the upcoming Ian McQue figure set. Like the Rigger and Mopper, this waving crewman figure was modeled by Rishi Nandlaskar. Watch for upcoming shots of the final two in the set!

“Ian McQue’s Remora” Build-ups!

[singlepic id=422 w=420 h= float=]

Some really great build-ups of the First Edition Remora kits are appearing on our forums. Check them out here and leave the modelers some comments. I (FichtenFoo) finished my two Remora a few weeks ago. (pics here) The blue one is mine and the red was done for Ian based on the box art. He should receive it any day now so I can’t wait to hear what he thinks!

There’s still a few 2nd Edition Remora kits available for preorder. Click here to place a preorder of Ian McQue’s Remora.
