Group Build 14: Anything But Injected!

Major manufacturers have always relied upon injection-moulding to produce model kits. The downside is that the moulds are expensive to produce and so these manufacturers have tended to be conservative in developing their ranges. Starting in 1969, smaller companies like RAREplanes, Contrail and Airmodel employed vacuforming to produce kits with much less capital outlay. The result? Models of types never imagined from any of the major manufacturers. Since those days, we’ve seen the growth of other technologies and materials, including resin, white metal, paper/card and, most recently, 3D-printing. This GB celebrates all these “non-injected” options and includes scratchbuilding.
Runs from 14 January to 31 December 2021.
