Being News Editor here, on Armorama gives you the advantage of getting a first-look at many new products. It also, can 'jade' you somewhat, getting used to so many new releases that, it's also quite rare that you get a 'tingle' when something new is launched. This though, is definitely one of these latter moments. I'm not, as a rule, particularly interested in Modern subjects, these new weapon sets and accesories from Live Resin, certainly appear to be something VERY special indeed.
The company are promising a VERY large batch of releases in 1/35th scale. I'm also not exactly sure HOW they're doing it either. I've seen excellent resin castings in 1/35th scale, i've rarely seen anything comparable to THESE.

Here then are the first (imminent) releases in 1/35th scale from a NEW manufacturer in this field, Live Resin:

An M4 carbine "perforated can silencer" would be nice too. I'd also like to see the rifle thermal sight and even the Joint Tactical shotguns. A Javelin and some of the newer rockets and missiles would be a great additions. Missiles, MANPADs, and rockets are often neglected in the 1/35 modern weapon realm. What's even odd is how in resin, one could produce such fine tubes such as the gun barrels. Makes me think one could produce those rollcage FAV buggies also such as the, DPV, Singapore Flyer, Super Jeep, ATVs, etc.

What am I missing? Everyone is talking about Live Resin's website but every time I click on a link or Google it I get the same single page consisting of 2 female fantasy figures but no photos of their new modern kits...?????

The link I posted earlier in this thread works just fine, at least for me.

Thanks for the response. I figured it out, my web browser, Firefox, was the issue. I found the right one using Internet Explorer. Strange. Thanks again.

For your information, the 'old' web page is caused by a slow response from the web site and your computer loading a cached page from memory. Top tip - Hold down the CTRL key and press F5 this causes a hard refresh of any website and the new page appears. Regards Brian

I see Live-Resin is posting some of its CAD head and helmet sets on the scrolling photo slideshow on the top of their homepage. Some of those heads look mighty good and have NVGs and goggles that almost none of the competitors offer on one head, let alone a head set. Live-Resin is really what's needed for 1/35 figures! If they go 120mm, cool!!!!
