Never heard of them before but it doesn`t take a genius to work out that it`s a recaster......

yep- just had a quick trawl through and already can see a few classic kits, screamin`, halcyon, with (ahem) `re-imagined` box art.

Me, I`m already saving for a 3D printer- could just be the future of modelling. If the RAF can make parts for a Tornado jet fighter then I`m sure as hell I can make my own 1:1 aliens pulse rifle!

fancy a 3D printer mysdelf but its justifying the cost.. apparently the cheaper sub £1000 ones don`t seem to be up to much.. Theres a lot of Chinese imported ones. im not saying they would be crap, it all depends on what your gonna do with it I suppose.. problem I had was I just don`t know enough about them yet..


I remember building a couple of resin/vacform Pulse Rifles years back for a local shop.. they were a dog to make but looked great when build

I initially thought that was Frontier Models reborn, but does look like a bunch of recasts.  Thinking about it though I recall a company at Telford that I was looking at their stuff with Mark and thinking that it was all recast stuff.  Really stiff vinyl from China.  Think it might have been them.

Oh well back to the usual Fleabay keyword searches- `resin`, `rare`, `screamin`", etc, bloody, etc......

y`know I`ve made a few screamin`. Not really that impressed. The Chewbacca was a nightmare to make. I`d still love an Aurora Mummy.

That`s brilliant. Many thanks. Isn`t Timeless the new name for Comet Miniatures?
