26Decal (TwoSix) Laser Decal Announcement

TwoSix Decals has announced that as of November 30th 2019, they will be ending production of all their laser printed decals.  The reason given for this decision is that they want to free up time to concentrate on their screen printed decal lines.

This means that all “TS” prefix decals – TS44 (1/144), TS20 (1/200), TS10 (1/100), TS72 (1/72), TS48 (1/48) and TS96 (1/96) decals will no longer be available from TwoSix after that date.   These decals are printed “to demand”, and typically one or two at a time which can be very tedious and time consuming.

The “STS” prefix decals – STS44 (1/144), STS20 (1/200) and STS72 (1/72) scale screen printed decals will continue.   These decals are typically mass-printed at an outside print shop.

TwoSix has said that the more popular “TS” decals will be printed as “STS” decals, but likely that means only the 1/144 scale decals, and it may be a long time before a laser decal gets the screen print treatment.

So….  if there are any TS series decals you’ve had your eye on for a future project, please place your order before November 25th so I have time to place orders for additional stock needed.

Roden’s Convair 340 Kit Update

August 10th 2019 Update:

A few kits are trickling in from eastern Europe, and it can now be confirmed that the kit is, in fact, a Convair 440.  It has square exhausts where the 340 had round exhausts.  Whether the engine cowls are “more streamlined” than those on the 340 remains open to debate.  Most other differences are internal, but one fairly significant difference is that the 440 had re-arranged cabin baggage storage that allowed 2 extra rows of seats increasing capacity to 52 passengers, and with an extra cabin window both sides to give them a view.

Original Post Follows:

The long awaited Roden Convair 340 (ROD334) has just passed the outer marker!  A quick look at the sprues suggests that two nose cones are included, the original blunt nose and later longer nose cone that housed the weather radar.

ROD334-Convair-340-Sprues-812-W

The decal provided is for N5506K as delivered to Hawaiian Airlines in 1952.

ROD334-Hawaiian-Cv340-Decal-812-W

This airframe still exists, and has an interesting history. It was converted to a series 580 with Allison turboprop engines in 1967 and delivered to Allegeny Airlines as N5834. I saw it as such at Toronto International in June 1970. I logged it again as F-FAUF with Soundair, again at Toronto in July 1988, then with Canair Cargo (see AHS4037) also as C-FAUF in September 1991. It is still flying as XA-UPL with Air Tribe, operating fairly regularly into Phoenix, where I saw it in April 2019. It’s older than me, and still earning its keep!

ETA in stock is mid to late August 2019. Please click ROD334 to pre-order for first delivery.
