    Grendels lighting Tutorials

    doing some research at work on the 555 chip ... why use the 555 to create pulsing lights ??? could we not use a low value capacitor on the 4060 pin out for the led ? when the 4060 timing chip cuts the power to the pin out, it would force the capacitor to disperse the power it's built up. thus...

    Bandai Star wars release schedule

    don't know if this is due to the licensing or not - I contacted a Revell distributor here in Australia - they aren't selling the Star Wars Ep7 kits ... so looks like we are stuff from both manufacturers ... Buying from US isn't worth it, due to shipping being high ...

    well - Revell is being hit on multiple fronts - the licensing issue is just the stick that broke the camels back. As Grendels points out in his rant - the kits are crap. why pay the cost of a BanDai kit, for a small count model kit, thats pre-painted and lacks detail. I think we all can...

    Bandai Star wars release schedule

    got a reply from HLJ - they are not allowed to sell Ep7 items outside Japan so we should be able to continue getting BanDai Star Wars through out normal channels ... if BanDai aren't allowed to sell Ep7 outside Japan, is Revell restricted to selling only in US and Europe ?

    Big Spring Contest 2015

    haven't even thought about the spring contest this year ... quick question, i'm thinking of a junk yard dio - do all kits/subjects have to be from unopened/non-started kits ?
