    Anthem Airbrush problem

    Hey guys! I just bought my first airbrush (Woot to the woot! ;D) but I'm having a problem unscrewing the head? I'm sure it's part 51-071. I've tried hand grips to needle nosed pliers, but the thing is not budging! My hand grips broke while trying to unscrew the head, and my pliers have...

    1/33 Airco DH.6

    :-[ Unfortunately, I've run into delaminating paper problems with the Banshee, and the B-29 seems impossible to finish, let alone start at this stage. [It seems I'm always a late competitor in these competitions D:] So instead, I looked through my paper stash and found this sweet...

    Halinski 2011/2012

    Hi guys! I noticed some of you are interested in paper models. Whether it is a passing or intent interest, I think you may be wondering about pre-printed kits. These kits are usually of a much higher quality than free models one finds on the internet. The Tamiya equivalent in paper - is...

    Anyone hear about Wing nut wings? Pretty sure you guys have, so let me refine my question - Has anyone had any experience with building a WnW kit? And what about the shipping time length? I love WW2, Cold War, and Contemporary aircraft, but I'm getting this fascination with WW1 aviation. I...

    Hey guys! This entry will be going into the junior category as well. I'll be building my first plastic model in I'm not sure how many years! My last one was the Revell 1/48 Tomcat and it turned to be a disaster :-X So hopefully this turns out a lot better.

    Hey guys! I'm going to be building Skyline's 1/32 Banshee for the Juniors category. (Note: I printed off the blue variant to look through, but I'll be building the grey version).

    Stuff for Sale

    I'm cutting back on my stash in order to get some other kits ;D I'm located in California and will only ship to areas of the US. I'll probably ship with the flat rate shipping boxes, so expect shipping to be $10-15. I know, shipping is a bear, so I tried to cut the costs of the actual items...

    2/3 Studio Scale Battlestar Galactica

    Hey guys, hopefully I put this in the right spot. Here's a once in a life time deal, a hand crafted BSG, with 4 years through the making. The model sports a bunch of detail, and the builder, Ekuth, spent many, many, many hours no doubt (Anyone remember Mr. Young, the master modeler who built...

    Blizzaia L

    This one is a paper model I finished a few years back, but never got around to taking pictures. Anyways, this is a Wanzer, specifically Blizzaia L from a turn based game called Front Mission. I've never been played Front Mission, so I don't know any history on this mech, or what specific Front...
