      OzMods latest releases are repackagings of the 1/48 and 1/144 Caribou, and correction nacelles for the Italeri 1/72 C-130J Herc. Two other releases - 1/144 C-2A Greyhound conversion and 1/48 Vultee Vengeance correction - are due for release by September. A new 120 mm ANZAC figure - sculpted by Phil Walden - will also be released in the same time scale.

      The 1/48 Caribou (vacs, resin, metal, decals) has been revised with decals for all five of the RAAF's "45 years service"/Retirement schemes, as well as one each for the USAF and Air America. Most of the production run was presold, and at the time of writing only a dozen kits remain.

      The 1/144 Caribou (resin with metal and optional vac canopy) now comes with new screen printed decals: Covering the five aircraft for the RAAF "45 years service"/retirement scheme, and one each for the USAF and the Spanish Air Force.

      The 1/72 C-130J nacelle correction pack (resin) for the Italeri kit comprises four nacelles, four spinners and 24 blades, and four vent doors - the pack also includes detailed instructions on stretching the Italeri kit to the long fuselage -30 model.

      For release by the end of June is a C-2A Greyhound conversion for the Revell 1/144 Hawkeye kit. This comprises a clear injected fuselage, injected tailplane and cargo doors, and resin detail cockpit and aerials. Also included in this pack are screen printed decals for the US Navy VRC-30 Det 5.

      Also due for release by the Queensland Model Hobbies Expo in early September is a total correction set for the 1/48 Vultee Vengeance. This resin pack comprises a completely corrected/reshaped fuselage (with side wall detail), reshaped nacelle with engine and propeller, fully detailed cockpit (with pilot's seat, panel, controls, nav/gunner's detailed compartment), detailed bomb bay with doors and bomb (with choice of US or RAF fins), various bulkheads, flattened main wheels ... and a few other bits and pieces. The parts are already in production, and waiting for build photos and instructions to be organised.
