You want basic? DONE! This art is neither exciting nor even all that accurate, but it is striking in its simplicity.

The C6N Saiun was a high speed recon plane and eventual night fighter designed to outrun any Allied fighter to report on enemy activity. However, it was late in coming and amounted to a “day late and a dollar short” effort in the long run. Still, that didn’t prevent Aoshima from issuing a kit of […]

BOOM! Is this the cover to a Warlord Boy's Annual or what? You want action, adventure and suspense? This furious box art has it all!

Throughout history, there have been legends of beasts that were half one animal and half another, or half human/half animal. Well, the engineers in WWII took this idea and applied it to vehicles, creating half truck/half tank conveyances known, unsurprisingly, as “half-tracks”. One of the most famous and widely used of these was the M3, […]

Cavalier 028

Why? Because I’ve already got one myself! Check out MPC’s 1/25 1982 Cavalier over on the Cars page. It’s a blast from the past, and another reminder of how dark the days were for car enthusiasts back in the early 1980s. As it turns out, just making it pointy, doesn’t really make it sporty. Who’d […]

Lada Taxi 006

Who says size matters? Well, when you’re talking about die cast replicas made in the USSR, good things come in small packages! One of the weirdest (and cutely-ugliest) die cast cars I’ve seen to date is the Made in USSR 1/43 Vaz 2101 Taxi. This car is more widely known as the Lada 12oo, a […]


Well, if there’s one thing MPC knows how to do, it’s push a mould for all it’s worth! The 1/25 Wild Breed Cobra is a first generation FoxStang with a radically late ’70s/early ’80s panelled paint scheme, custom wheels and side pipes! It’s also able to be built stock, and comes with everything you need […]

Panzer II (OOB) 001

When the Nazi Germany unleashed the Blitzkrieg on the world in 1939, one of the most important instruments in its victorious conclusion was the Panzer II. This small, light tank spearheaded the assaults across Europe, both to the west and then the east. Check out the Matchbox 1/76 Panzer II Ausf. F on the Out […]

The small bits of orange and light grey help break up the monotony of the main beige colour. It makes a rather subdued mech really "pop".

Sometimes, more is better. When tangling with both the Sleeves and renegate London Bell personnel, the Federation obviously felt the same way. This lead to the ReZel Type C (Defenser-b) configuration; double the cannons and even more engines than before! Check out the final flavour of Unicorn ReZel that Bandai put out: the massively over-armed […]
