--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

are robogear anygood as models rather than as wargame models im considering getting some robogear stuff



They're a bit simple. Not as much detail as the Warhammer 40K kits produced by Games Workshop but a darned site cheaper.

Really it would depend on your modelling & painting skill. To jazz them up with extra gubbins would be relatively simple and then it's just a case of painting them......

What are you doing playing with toys, Dave? :twisted:

Who wants a What-if Robogear GB? :P Like you buy a kit and add loads of extras, different camo etc

Hey, that was not me playing with toys. That was "serious research" for the benefit of the forum members! :wink:

I'd forgotten about these kits. I assume the range was 'bought in' by Airfix. Anyone know with whom it originated?

I believe they were originally produced by IMEX - http://www.imex-model.com/games1.htm

Actually, Imex were only the American distributor. Robogear originated with a Russian company called Tehnolog.

Thanks Richard, to the rescue again! I knew that IMEX made some kits and distributed others but couldn't be sure about Robogear, hence the "I believe". :wink:

So,Airfix dont sell them any more!

What happened?

I guess the models wern't selling very well. Here's the original Russian website. They are distributed in the US by IMEX.
