    Aoshima/Imai Captain Scarlet SPC model

    I never had the courage to tackle those Imai Captain Scarlet figure kits, (or any figures for that matter) so I hope you do build one or more, and please share. Painting figures is a real art! Those Spectrum uniforms were very cool.

    Back in the game

    It’s funny how so many of us got back into modeling after first experiencing this incredible hobby as a kid. All through my adult life, I kept thinking about how much fun it was, and how much I missed it. So about ten years ago, I said what the hell and got started again. It’s very rewarding...

    Kitty Hawk and Panda brands are going away

    And there’s always the hundreds of thousands of vintage and modern kits on eBay and elsewhere - some being almost given away - so I don’t picture us running out of subject matter anytime soon! I’ve lived my whole life without a Panda or KittyHawk kit so...

    My Latest Project

    Humidity and temperature drops are notorious for tampering with paint finishes, and some of the off-shelf spray cans use harsh solvents that can craze paint and plastic. After years of trial and error, I’ve found a system that works most of the time, and this is just for large areas such as...

    My Latest Project

    That, my friend, is a beauty! An iconic motor vehicle if ever there was one. I especially like your canopy and stripe work. As for orange peel, I’ve been living with that my whole life, so it doesn’t bother me. I think that using similar paint brands may be part of the solution, but finicky...

    Have you noticed that plastic scale models are a rather expensive hobby these days?

    Men collect toys - well put! What is it about us guys who prefer building our own toys?

    Have you noticed that plastic scale models are a rather expensive hobby these days?

    The collecting of kits over and beyond what you can reasonably build in a lifetime seems to be an occupational hazard. I have about 100 kits, and I’m considered a lightweight in that area. Somebody on here I think has 5,000 kits in their stash! And does anybody know anyone who builds one kit...

    Have you noticed that plastic scale models are a rather expensive hobby these days?

    An exemplary mindset, indeed. If more parents brought up their kids to be mature, responsible adults as you did, well then, let us just imagine that world!
