That Centaur looks very challenging....  have you done any figures I've missed Iain?

Nope! I haven't painted a "figure" model in years so that build will be interesting.

The Vor'cha was on my front porch when I got home!



Not a lot of parts, or decals to this kit, which is okay by me.
Clear red parts too.





The main color shoutout just says to match the plastic as best you can then use a dark green wash.

I have the earlier release of this Klingon cruiser Spencer....    doesn't look like they improved the box art too much....  still looks like a toy on the box top.

Some kits are just like that I guess.....

That's a ton of fiber there Warren.

Where did you get it from (if you can say) as I have Sith Planet/Korbath Super Star Destroyer on it's way to me for this years UKG Gala Ball/Auction so going to need a few feet of FO methinks.

I already had one, but I could maybe use one more.

Bandai's X-Wing. Box contain both a 1:72 and a 1:144 scale model.

Update: I have since learned that there is no death star exhaust port with this new release, and the exhaust port is found with the older kit releases for the X-Wing in 1:72 scale (and without the addition of the 1:144 X-Wing in the same box). Lucky fo rme, I should have at least one exhaust port in one of my old boxes.



I want to buy Greenstrawberry's photo etch parts for the 1:72 X-Wing. The PE canopy parts seem more realistic, being really thing as seen in A New Hope. :)

Could someone please post the link to this product.....  I found the same quantity of .5mm FO at Alien Factory, but it's $100 and not exactly what I'm looking for so I would like to see about multi strand cables if they have any.

Thanks...

Academy 12282, 1:48 scale, P-38 Lightning (seemingly based off a 1993 new tool kit)



I did some research and this kit seems overall ok, though I can't speak myself for how accurate it would be. A fairly cheap 1:48 kit. :) About $23.50 incl. shipping.

to ImWolf
   i found one place  but it is 69 US  plus shipping.[ from China] I can assume you are American.
 not being rude but you Yanks are spoiled by  the shipping rates as long as it is the states . and the exchange rate your 69 is my 100
 you have no idea how bad we get bent over  buying outside of Canada.


but i would still like an address [ from Warren or Iain]to check out as well to see if it's cheaper
