Box it up…I’ll take it…or a modeler’s rant…

Ok, first the RFM Panther is a great kit. Some disappointments yep, but really wow! Second, I WANT TO THROW IT AT THE WALL!!!!! So it's time to take a break, as I really want to do the kit justice, but daayyyyuuuum. So my conundrum??? I hav[...]

RFM Panther continues. Plastic modeling , or oragami?

I must admit that I just about scrapped the idea of the interior during this latest phase. First the torsion bars are much more fiddly than Dragons, getting everything to line up was a bit of a bear. I used toothpicks, which worked well. Next[...]

Treasures in the corner….

So I went to Skyway Models today looking for Panzer Crew for my Panther, no luck there. In the corner under some other kits I did however find a treasure from 1977, the Monogram B-29, complete with diorama sheet! I really need to stop........I[...]

RFM Panther update

I have been steadily plugging away at the kit, and still am impressed with many facets of it. One thing though that amazes me is small "misses". For example on the engine deck there are two covers towards the rear. On Late Panthers these are [...]

And ye shall seek the grail…….

Well, we all know I have an affection for old Monogram kits, and seek out original issues wherever I can and build them! I have been seeking an affordable B-25H for a few years, not doggedly, but "keeping y eyes open". Well Emil at Skyway, who[...]

A hard fought battle

Ok, the story so far, the RFM Panther G, is in a word Amazing, in three words hard to build. Now that is with a caveat, you just really need to pay attention to the flow of the directions and read several steps ahead so you don't screw yourself[...]

A good read and a cold one….plus more RFM Panther..

So buying books has become more expensive as of late, I suppose specialty books always have been more spendy than a mainstream top seller, but still, ebay what the first Dual in the Mist goes for these days! The last time I spent upwards of $3[...]

Clearly RFM didn’t intend this…..

Ahhhh Rob and puns, like Spring and pollen, slightly irritating! Ok, so I decided from the get go I wasn't going to build this with the clear hull and turret, and I went a step farther and took a moto tool and glue to everything! German armor [...]

The story so far……

First, Milineals...or however you spell it, God bless ya and your love of beer in cans......No, just no. One of my favorites, I saw it in cans for much less than in a big bottle. I'll try it, the kids at work say "No Rob it's not like the cans[...]

What have I gotten myself into…

Ok, so every year when my company gives us our bonus, I choose a kit I would normally not spend the money on, a pat on the back for surviving another year (actually I love my company, so surviving is easy). In the past I have gotten 1/32 Tamiya[...]
