Armaments In Miniature Gallery

AIM (Armaments In Miniature) are an American company that has a range of resin kits in different scales. The 9mm (1:200) scale models fit well together with the WW2 models for Wings of War/Wings Of Glory. All the models are very resonably priced.

All AIM's models come with a peg in the bottom containing a screw. These are meant to be used with magnetic stands. However I wanted to use the normal WoW/WoG stands and pegs. So I removed the peg and screw and then drilled a small hole in the bottom of the fuselage and inserted a small peg made from a piece of toothpick that was the right size to fit into the normal Wings of Glory altitude pegs.

The trick with these resin models is to clean them well using washing up liquid and an old tootbrush before painting.
