    I used to know a guy who did great You Tube vids....

    When I first came back to Scale Modeling a couple years ago I stumbled across a YouTube video of this crazy guy doing his own rendition of a Star Wars scene, and some how relating it to Scale Modelling. He had a kick ass forum I joined and loved watching his videos. Anyone know what happened to...

    1/72 Morser KARL 040/0041 Initial Version by Hobby Boss

    Well I have been away for some time from the hobby, and have a couple of shelf queens I need to finish up. But I figured since I have not been able to enjoy the hobby I love doing for so long, I would start off with a BANG! I figured what better than the 1/72 Morser KARL 040/0041 Initial...

    Why do people lick their brushes?

    So I have watched several painters in videos (oddly it seems to be mostly mini painters). Now mind you I am not referring to a clean brush or a brand new one even. I am watching people load their brushes with paint and pop the brush in their mouth for a quick swirl or a lick? WTH? I don't...

    Can you bend resin?

    I don't have any spare resin to test with, but I was curious if you could heat and bend resin like you could with styrene?

    Homemade Humbrol streaking grime?

    Hi folks, I have several mini humbrol pots and too few enamel streaking effects. So I thought, "Hey maybe I can make my own". Tonight I am going to experiment making a few with what I got, but I have a question for those out there that may know more than me. What is a good mix ratio and is there...

    Fruil alternative?

    Hi folks, so I was starting to build a wish list of things I need/want for some future builds I have planned in the new year. And one thing that I need a few of is "tracks", mostly due to the fact the tracks for at least three kits have horribly warped one piece rubber tracks. And after pricing...

    Deal on 1/3oz Tamiya pots. $1.66

    I found this site today and order a few pots of tamiya for $1.66, pretty inexpensive me thinks... They don't have a full line but enough colors that I was able to save about $15 from where I normally order my stuff.

    I am sure this has been asked many times before, but I did not have much locating any previous posts with the info i was looking for. So let's "beat that dead horse" So I read Ian's thread on photography for scale modelling and it was a ton of help for stills. My old point and shoot Pentax is...

    Well when I joined this merry band of addicts here on SMA about a year ago I had begun work on a little 1/72 Jagdtiger I am finally pleased to announce I am nearing completion ( someone somewhere said that completion was the goal, not perfection :) ). Hmmm I wonder who that was. Anyway this...
