Attended a seminar by these guys at the 2018 IPMS/USA Nationals in Phoenix.  It was very good.  I am not a fan of acrylics, but am willing to give their Mission Models Paints a try.

A funny thing happened on the way to Dayton

Was headed to the Dayton contest on Saturday, when I got clocked just over the Ohio river bridge.  Got my bell rung and lost my last year’s production of kits, but it could have been much, much worse.

Magazine review: RT Volume 40 #1

In past reviews I’ve said just about all I can say about RT.  It is, IMHO, the best non-commercial modeling magazine out there, and in fact is one of the best magazines period.  It is the only modeling magazine that I read all of the articles regardless of subject or scale.

This issue is no different.  In addition to an excellent article on building the 72nd scale Airfix Spitfire PR.XIX, there is an article on building and improving the Italeri Italian manned torpedo from WWII.  There is also build article on a 1/144th 727 airliner.  Finally there are two articles on the RG-31 Nyala, MRAP/ wheeled APC.  The first is a history of the vehicle, with a focus on its use by the Canadian armed forces, while the second is a construction article using the Kenetic kit as the starting point.  Both are excellent reads, even for a non-armor guy like myself.

Highly recommended.
