HighJacker (OOB) 043

Recently, we’ve seen a number of old, valuable and hard-to-find kits being reissued. It’s a golden age again, and Round 2 is leading the charge! Suprisingly, they’ve taken to reissuing a number of the larger, 1/20 kits as well. Surely, the king of this proverbial hill is none other than 1/20 Econoline-based HighJacker, a crazy, […]

The black call letters went easily, as far as making my own decals. The tail bands, though, were very tough. A lot of them died to get this result!

Many of us have relatives, past and present, that have served as inspirations for our modelling exploits. I’m no different. The one plane that I know members of my family have been involved with is the Grunau Baby glider. That’s why I was thrilled to get my hands on the 1/72 AZ Grunau Baby IIb […]

Citation 107

When you “stepped up” to the X-11 trim in the mid ‘80s, you got more than just meaningless decals and a (likely non-functional) trunk lip spoiler; you also got the 2.8L V6 engine! Now, I know in this day and age that a V6 producing a massive 135 hp and a stump-pulling 145 ft.lbs of […]

Citation 002

For the most part, the Citation notchback is not one of those cars people remember fondly, if at all. Most people opted for the hatchback, preferring its econoboxishly-utilitarian nature with a hint of sportiness to the clearly stuffy notchback. Thus, when it came time for people with a yearning for “high performance” to step up […]

This is after flat and satin coating. You can see the "white" lines still show up, but are far more subtle on the final product!

Despite the ending of the Cold War, the Royal Navy still has a need for a submarine to go out and hunt/kill enemy subs. To satisfy this requirement, the Astute class of boats was developed. Despite their newness, we in the modelling world have been treated with what seems to be a fairly accurate replica […]

Happy New Year everyone! What with everyone turning over new leaves and the like, it seemed like the perfect time for something new here at the Lagoon! As it turns out, it’s not just aboutt planes, cars, spaceships, mecha and figures anymore. Now I’ve discovered the world of ships, more precisely submarines, and nothing will […]

The red and white of the Swedish version compliments the AZ box well. It's also a nice piece of art!

The Grunau Baby family of gliders was, for a long time, a staple of the primary flight training scene, especially in Europe. While it’s not as well-known today, or in North America, the folks at AZ Model have created a nice little kit of this iconic plane for everyone to enjoy. Check out my out […]
