Looking forward to seeing some of you at these shows as we travel by ferry from the English tropics in the Undercliff, IOW to a show near you soon.

As the New ranges and models are loaded up I will make announcements accordingly.

Unfortunately, most of July and some of August was a wipe out for me as I caught the China Virus. Andy Buckland did a fantastic job of keeping the ship going during that difficult time. All recovered now, nearing the end of the new EWM studio/man cave. Pictures to follow.

New designs and SUPERCAST resins.

I wanted to share a major development I have made here at EWM. Our resin models have been improving over the years since we started to make them. I made a major breakthrough in recent weeks in resin casting. The way we mould masters, how they are mounted, the silicone rubbers and complex blends of catalyst we use and the new resin and how it is added to the moulds, has all changed in these new designs.

The result is a highly detailed fine castings, tracks or wheels on. The ability to reproduce such castings consistently and with many reproductions from such complex moulds has taken many years to perfect. I have been lucky with support from some masters in this business, Jim Brown being one. I developed and made a major step change and improvement in late November 2020. Testing the new methods and Technology involved has taken place to ensure that I just “did not get lucky” one time? The third batch is proof its repeatable and its producing some awesome results.

The results when they came out of the moulds are a major improvement over previous methods of moulding and casting. When I looked at the castings, I commented that they are “SUPER”, and so the name has stuck.

EWM SUPERCAST then is a name I want to use to signal to customers that the model labelled as SUPERCAST is made using these new techniques and materials. As such, you will expect something of a certain quality and design concept. EWM SUPERCAST uses quality, drop proof plastic resin, moulded so that you get a superb model casting with minimal clean up. Other parts will be made from quality white metal castings. Such things as gun barrels, machine guns, hatches or the tiny parts that when either made from resin OR printed parts, are too fragile to be used on models that require handling in gaming. This combination of finely cast resin models, with metal details or exposed parts, makes them perfect for gaming or modelling. The resin casting means the model comes virtually ready made, just add detail as required like hatches open or closed, gun elevated or crew added.

SUPERCAST then enters as a method of manufacture and as a new standard to be recognised. The first models made with this method are the Stuart M3A3 Recce in British and Canadian use.

This is how the model comes plus a selection of white metal 2x .30 cal MMGs and a .50 HMG with the early version front gun mount and an optional folding tilt cover. Just add the options you want, under 5 minutes to add the options you want, then paint it.

First of many using the new EWM SUPERCAST process, a future mark of quality and design.

Thank you for your business in 2020 and heres to making 2021 even better. There are so many exciting new models I want to share with you, but I have to focus on production and orders for now.

See EWM Streets and Roads here.

More new American and Russian models to follow in September.

My good friend Steve Renwick of Battle Zone Miniatures (BZM) has been busy making some great new additions to his 20mm Russian and American ranges. EWM carry all of his products to shows and already has some available on our webstore. I shall be adding a whole lot more as soon as I can in September. These are truly lovely models and Steve has given them the treatment they deserve, taking them to a very high level of detail and ease of building. I’m really proud to be able to offer these miniatures and models along side the EWM ranges. They are totally compatible with my EWM models.

Nearly 50 years ago, Steve and I were mates growing up in Edmonton in North London, then went to the same school and now we work together, helping each other to make and create models and miniatures.

just one of many new additions from BZM.
LVT 4 – just lovely model.

Siam in WW2. World war 2 yes, Vietnam but not as we know it?

A brand new range is ready to launch, the Army of Siam 1930 to 1942, with post 1942 additions in the works. A big thank you to one of our customers who inspired and helped us shape the range with both technical knowledge and inspiration. The Thai’s fought themselves in a civil war in 1933. They then launched a campaign against Vichy French Indochina in December 1940 for a number of provinces lost earlier in the 20th Century. Next they fought the Japs and British, initially at the same time, then turned into an axis power with further battles against the British and even Chinese Nationalists.

Update…..We have just finished molding the Thai Military Police forces. These were often the first troops encountered by the French, Japs and British forces.

A link to a film that may interest some. The Army of Siam had the dubious honor to fight both the Japanese and the British forces on December 8th 1941, actually about 2 hours before Pearl harbor started. Amongst those troops fielded by Siam were the Yuwachon Thahan which was a military/political youth organisation.

A short tribute with footage from a film covering the said action here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DmolrpNSXs

The full movie is also worth a watch, the last 30 minutes deal with the build up to war, training and then the fighting against the Japanese. Some great footage of the Yuwachon Thahan fighting the Japanese. Such events, campaigns and battles are “war gaming gold”. These youth troops fought exceptionally well against experienced and aggressive Japanese troops. Combine this with the Franco-Thai war earlier in 1940/41 where Siam fought the French in what is now Vietnam/Laos/Cambodia.

New Range launched
Hit this to see some of the new Army of Siam miniatures just out.

The figures first got an outing with a successful demo game hosted by Adrian White and friends at Tonbridge in February 2020. Righty it won best demo game at this show. Painted By Adrian White.

A new range of Vichy French suitable for Syria, Indochina and Madagascar are now available on the webstore. Here are a few more tasters.

Thank you for your business and ENJOY.
