New Stuff at Red Roo

Postby Redroo » Wed Aug 03, 2016 9:04 am

Here are some of the new products that have arrived in July.

First up - the new version of the AZ Models Supermarine Spitfire Mk VIII (RAAF) which features three RAAF aircraft in a variety of camouflage and markings. The kit is injection moulded plastic with a comprehensive decal sheet and a detailed instruction sheet. The modeller can choose between three Mk VIIIs: A58-631 flown by F/L George Scrimgeour of 457 Sqn, Labuan, Borneo in June 1945; A58-370 from 54 Sqn, operated from Darwin in May 1945 and A58-517 "Hava-go-Joe", flown by P/O Norm Turnbull of 79 Sqn, Morotai in April 1945. Full details can be found by following this link.

We have re-printed two of our earlier decal sheets and up-graded them to screen printed versions; available in both 1/72 and 1/48 scale; the colourful P-40E coded CD-A from 2 OTU and the Boomerang "Miss Albany".

For the 1/72 scale version of our colourful P-40E follow this link and for the 1/48 scale version use this link - ... 2-otu-148/

For the 1/72 scale version of Miss Albany use this link and for the 1/48 scale version follow this link - ... 172-scale/

This July we introduce a new decal sheet which is available in both 1/72 scale and 1/48 scale versions. The sheet covers late-war P-40N Kittyhawks of 75 Sqn. Three distinct airframes have been chosen for this sheet because they each depict interesting camouflage and markings applied to RAAF Kittyhawks toward the end of the war in the SWPA. For the 1/72 scale decal sheet follow this link - ... 172-scale/

and for the 1/48 scale version go here - ... 148-scale/

Last but not least, we want to introduce a new product which we think will prove to be very popular with modellers. Fan fare please - now in-stock is "Roo Grip" Acrylic Model Glue. Designed for use when attaching PE brass parts, vacformed canopies, clear resin and plastic parts, (in applications where you want to avoid marring the surface of the clear parts), etc. Roo Grip is a fourth generation acrylic glue which can be easily applied to parts with a damp brush, toothpick or pin. Excess can be easily wicked away with a damp brush and once set if can be easily painted. For details on new Roo Grip follow this link - ... odel-glue/

In the next couple of months we will have new stocks of the popular DK Decals arriving as well as more black EZ-Line. More new decals from Red Roo will be appearing on the website soon.
