Orange Hobby „Red Series“ 2m Stabantenne early

Orange Hobby „Red Series“ 2m Stabantenne early (Item N°: G35-003-35) :

This set from Orange Hobby is for early World War 2 German vehicles ranging from Panzer II-IV.

The set consists of an antenna with 57mm length, the mounting bracket that has drilled a hole to the side so that the antenna can be glued in easily, a small pe fret for the securing springs and a short assembly illustration.

The antenna is of stiff brass and the pe, although thin for easy bending, can be compared with Voyager pe from stiffness.

LionMarc Model Designs releasing 106mm RR Barrels for Ontos

When Academy released its M50 Ontos, it would not be long before the aftermarket crowd began releasing updates.  The first, to my knowledge, is LionMarc Model Designs with replacement barrels.  They not only simplify constructions from saving the filling and sanding on the barrels, they correct Academy's issues of flared tips on the barrels and no rifling.
