LPS decals has apparently heard that AZ is going to release a new line of P-36 kits.  Cool looking decals.

Immigrants to Canada

With an increase of refugees and illegal aliens into Canada since Jan. 20th, it looks as if the Canadians may be getting a bit worried about who is coming into their country.  I think that makes sense.

Russian radiation mystery

I previously noted increased radiation levels coming from Russian territory. There was some question about the validity of the report given the source.  Now, other outlets are reporting the story.

I believe that professor Reynolds has once again hit the nail on the head.

I love AIMS stuff.  Even though the Luftwaffe isn’t my main area of modeling, the AIMS stuff is great.  Now they are doing a Ju-88P conversion.

This could be very bad.  If true, it almost has to be bad and the only question is how bad.

3D printing has come of age for modelers.  Shapeways offers a bunch of stuff.  HPM is now offering 3D printed models.

Don’t dismiss a kit just because it’s old…

Filed under: Modeling — dknights @ 11:00 am

I have a near opposite opinion from Mr. Pollard in his blog post below. I came to the conclusion a few years ago that with so many things I want to build and my limited time, the effort it takes to build an older kit and turn it into something that is acceptable to me is just too great. Therefore I have generally been purging older kits from my inventory and building modern releases of what is available that I want to build. YMMV.

THE KIT BOX

Ancient kits can be fun as well, especially when they are of subjects with no modern replacement…

“We all like the modern kits that are released almost daily, but sometimes it is good to grab something from an older vintage and see where the journey takes us”

One of the players in the South China Sea may be having a bit of problems with their navy.
