Dude! Enough with the CG effects! The Legilis' box is very busy and exc

While it may look like “just another Gundam”, the 1/144 HG Gundam Legilis has a few things that set it apart from others bearing the Gundam name. As the final enemy protagonist in Gundam AGE, the Legilis is one of the most powerful MSs of that series, and its lean lines and aggressive styling befit […]

This is the box. It does not really excite or draw your attention to the kit, I find. However, what you see is remarkably close to what you get.

The Chrysler Sebring convertible was a big styling and design improvement over the previous LeBaron convertibles. Sleek and sophisitcated, it was a good seller for Chrysler, and it’s surprising that no one else bothered to kit it. Thankfully, Lindberg got their hands on the promo and were able to make it into a kit. Literally! […]

Farpro Saiun 035

Well, like an out of control logging truck hurtling down a mountain freeway, work on the Farpro Saiun continues apace here at the Lagoon. Rarely one to back away from a modelling challenge, I’ve managed to get this thing to the point of actually making it into an airplane!  For more details on what came […]

Farpro Saiun 004

They say you can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear. Well, that’s fine with me, because I don’t have a pig and I don’t need a purse. However, if there’s one thing I do like to try and do, it’s make the old new again. I’m a big fan of “work with what […]

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 […]
