Been wanting a Predator model kit, and after I saw a build up of this one on Eagle Sci Fi Modeler's channel, I scored one off eBay with a coupon to boot.
All the way from 1994, but fortunately the model doesn't have any decals. It's all paint work.

The "dreads" will be a pain, but I can't complain.  ;)

Got my hands on the new K'Tinga model (now up to four 1:350 kits) and the repop of the Runabout kit (now in Medical Blue!).

Hi, Everyone!

I added the Bandai 1:2700000 Death Star II & 1:14500 Star Destroyer combo kit to the collection.

I wrote up a quick look post with more information and pictures, and it's available at The Model Stash blog: https://themodelstash.blogspot.com/2019/02/in-stash-bandai-12700000-death-star-ii.html

Check it out!

:)

Looks like my local Walmart now has a model kit display, after having no modeling related stuff at all.
Probably wishful thinking, but I'm really hoping it's a sign of something more permanent.

Got these three kits for less than I could get online. A good day. There was also a Hawk Mk IX that I might have to go back and get.

After reading on FB about sci-fi model kits showing up at Walmart, I scoured several local stores. Didn't come up with anything.  :-\

Maybe they're still in the process of arriving...  :o

After being inspired by Karve's fantastic Galactica build I had to get another one.



I already have one in the stash alongwith the Acreation armour/rib decals but you can never have too many Battlestars.

Next up is another addition to my Russian fighter jet collection (I really need to get some Migs).

The HobbyBoss 1/48 SU-27.

Well, I bought my first printed kit.

It's a "Reeves Inspired" Superman by NY3DCreations that I bought from their eBay storefront here.
I'd been saving up for a superhero kit, and this one checked all the boxes for me.

I don't have any experience with these kind of kits, but I would say the print quality is pretty good, and the likeness isn't bad.

Cape flapping ....


Print lines as you would expect, but nothing some light sanding and filler primer won't fix.



Waiting to see the new site up and running ...
