  • My computer has been frozen for the last two days. If you have a Mac and you are planning to upgrade to the new Catalina operating system, I urge extreme caution! I have finally managed to recover the computer and my data. We'll be back to regular updates tomorrow.

John Darlington has let us know that Richard Thompson, who many of our New Zealand visitors will know as the previous owner of Modelair hobby shop in Auckland, passed away last week. I was fortunate to be able to spend a few days with Richard and his wife Nicky during a shop function in 2011, and it was with great sadness that I heard this news. I offer my sincere condolences to Richard's family and many friends.

  • News from DACO - 30 years ago, on 7 September 1989 to be exactly, DACO Products was officially registered as a company, after already being active for several years in designing decals as a hobby. For this 30-year anniversary, DACO Products is offering a full discount on all available DACO books, kits, decals and other products for 3 weeks! During the first week (from 7 to 15 September) a discount of 30% is given on all available products, the second week (from 16 to 23 September) this discount will be 20%, and during the last week (from 24 to 30 September) it will be 10%.

  • Revell's new 1/32 scale Messerschmitt Me 262 A-1/A-2 single seater has just arrived. In tonight's Squadron ScaleWorkshop I unbox and offer my first impressions of this new kit. What a week!

8 August, 2019

  • Tonight I present a detailed written review on the brand new Tamiya 1/48 scale Lockheed P-38F/G Lightning. 40 images of the kit's plastic and multimedia parts, masks, decals and future box top are included. Please note that this is a pre-production test shot and the colour of the plastic is likely to be different.

  • At the IPMS USA Nationals, Radu Brinzan has spotted Wingnut Wings' newest announcement - a 1/32 scle Fokker Dr.I. We'll have more information on this in the coming days. Wingnut Wings will also be relesing a 1/32 scale HP O/100 along with their O/400. Good times!

  • Graham Carter reviews Blackbird Models' 1/72 scale Argentine Avros. Images of the decals, the instructions and a mode finished in one of the schemes is included.

  • The 48ers has added three new product lines: ANYZ from Germany, Rafalik from Czech Republic as well as Temp models from Russian Federation totalling 4,000 modern aircraft accessories and aftermarket products in stock!

  • Continuing coverage of our remarkable run of new releases, tonight I present my detailed text and image review of the brand new Eduard 1/48 scale P-51D-5 Chattanooga Cho Choo. 40 images of the kit's plastic and photo-etched parts, photo-etched fret, decals and box top are included.

  • More information has come to light about my suggestion that the new Tamiya 1/48 scale P-38F/G can be built as a P-38H straight from the box. In short, it cannot! It turns out that there are a number of subtle differences between the P-38G and H:

    • The internal rear canopy bracing was not a feature on the H. The rear canopy was a completely clear unit.
    • The turbocharger intake on the side of the boom just under the wing trailing edge on each outboard side; the H model intake was identical to the later J & L version’s longer and pointier rear end
    • A different instrument panel would have to be used for the H as there were differences from the F panel in the kit. 

Thanks to Tom Cleaver and John Clements for this information.

  • A test shot of Tamiya's all-new 1/48 scale P-38F/G Lightning has just arrived! In tonight's Squadron ScaleWorkshop I unbox and offer my first impressions about the kit.

  • Eduard's brand new 1/48 scale "Chatanooga Choo-Choo" Limited Edition P-51D-5 Mustang has just landed on my doorstep. In tonight's Squadron ScaleWorkshop I unbox and offer my first impressions about the kit. As a bonus, I also explore the sprues from the forthcoming early D-5 kit without the tail fillet, due for release in October.
