Kiwi Models has been in the business of producing resin kitset aircraft and conversions for nearly two decades.

Now its time to change our production over to fully injected short run plastic kit sets

We have 2 projects being prepared at the moment, the 1/48 Yak 11 racer Czechmate, and the 1/32 German Heinkel P.1077 Julia rocket powered fighter

These kits are CAD designed and the masters are 3D printed with very high detail. We make the injection molds ourselves, and the injection molding is carried out by Jays Models of New Zealand

Canopies for our projects are made by world leaders Falcon Ind, and decals are produced by Oldmodels decals. Both of these companies are New Zealand based.

We see kickstarter as the ideal way to bring these models to market, we dont anticipate selling them by the thousands, however it is good to knopw the initial set up costs are covered.

Risks and challenges

The risks involved centre around making the molds. It is a time consuming process requiring the utmost concentration. One mistake means the molds are thrown out and we start again.
We have some experience in making these molds, so the risk of failure is very low, and to be fair, we would keep making molds until we have a fully working set.
