Why can’t a modelling project be a success from start to finish – why do we always have to make mistakes?!
“After 40 years of building models you would think that I would have everything pretty much down pat and most things that I tackle would be an easy progression, A to Z, but no: if I can foul up a model I will”
When you need to add fine detail to your next model, these may be just what you need…
“Machining is exemplary and that means that in concert, the punches that pass through into the die plate, cut plasticard perfectly, no matter what size is used”
Not everything needs to be filthy to be interesting – sometimes, clean and tidy can be just as attractive.
“What I do have strong feelings about, is the idea that a model cannot be interesting if it is not weathered – frankly, that’s just rubbish”
Ugly as sin, Fairchild’s masterpiece has been an itch I’ve had to scratch more than once – and now I’m about to do build another…
“And thus it came to pass that I was able to finally afford the one kit I had craved since the moment I saw it: Tamiya’s 1:48 A-10A Thunderbolt II”
K Color Chrome metallics recreate natural metal as easy as one, two, three…
“Away from the actual metallic paint and its appearance, I have to say I was also impressed by how hard-wearing the finish was, even after being in place for only a few hours”
I’ve just checked in on this blog whilst watching the football and I’m stunned how many modellers have visited today! I don’t know why, but I have had twice as many readers today to see what I’ve written as I had on my busiest day ever – and that’s incredible! So whoever you are, thanks for taking the time to visit this Blog and reading the nonsense that I write, day to day. It’s very much appreciated! 🤓
Time to put my feet up and recharge the batteries.
Now that I’ve started to offer daily updates on here, I thought it might be wise to tell you that I won’t be around again until Thursday as we are having a few days away. As such, there is update for today, but there won’t be one for the next few days until I get back.
Have a nice week and see you soon! 🙂
