New Aim-132 ASRAAMs!

Back from vacation, preparing my daughter for back to school, photo-shoots (yep, I'm a photographer too!), photo-editing and MH orders!  Wow, it's been busy!  Back at it and I am pleased to share with you guys a new product I've been working on and will be launching soon.  Listening to my customers request, I began working on another product for the MH line..the AIM-132 ASRAAMs Set.  I would like to thank Michael Groseclos for the suggestion and the awesome reference photos he submitted!   So far MH has a good selection of missiles in the catalogue, but until now, I hadn't yet included any non-US based ordinance in the line up.  Well, that is about to change shortly with the addition of this air-to-air missile to Modern Hobbies.  I just finished making the master mould from which I will be pulling the first batch of casts.  From these casts I will then create the production moulds.  I'll be announcing when this new set will be available to order in a few days, so check back here at the blog or my FB page for update.  Check out the photos:

Final stages of preparing the AIM-132 master part for the master RTV mold.  From the casting pulled from the master mold, several production moulds will be made.
