A Wolf In Cat’s Wings

INTRODUCTION “There isn't enough thrust in Christendom to fix this plane.” With that sentence, Vice Admiral Thomas Connolly sealed the fate of the F-111B and his Navy career. Out of the ashes of a plane totally unsuited for carrier operations a[...]

5 Model Bandai Star Wars Mini Model Jam

Since taking over the Star Wars Model license for Asia from Fine Molds, Bandai has consistently produced easy to build model kits for the Star Wars fanboy/girl. They have several lines including a line of mini kits for those lacking the space f[...]

Eagle 4 From Space 1999

I profess that awful and/or cheesy British science fiction occupies a special place in my heart, top among them Space 1999. It is a very guilty and stupid pleasure, long considered one of the worst SF TV shows of all time because of its butcher[...]

1/48 Hobby Boss FW190D-11

This was a rather quick build. It is the easiest FW-190D series model I've built. Not mistake filled like the Tamiya D-9 which requires a lot of aftermarket or mods or a complicated headache to build like the Eduard D series. Definitely reco[...]
