If it's a fight you want, it's a fight the LO Model AT-3 will give you! This is a surprisingly ignorant little kit to put together, but once it's there, it looks pretty good. This is a great project and a rare plane, but not something for the faint of heart!

Appearances can be deceiving. Just like the little, unassuming AT-3 can pack a big punch, so too can the LO Model 1/72 AT-3 hit hard! While it looked like a fairly nice and simple little kit, it turns out that this model will really fight a builder all the way. With fit issues to rival […]

It’s hard to have something as cool, outrageous and downright overdone as Gold Rush just sitting on your shelf staring you in the face. It’s completely overwrought seventies-ness calls out to be freed, to let loose upon the world all that shag carpet and disco have to offer. Well, like Pandora before me, I couldn’t […]

Lucky Strike! The box of the Defiant is very eye-catching and is some of the more exciting Airfix art of recent times.

The crucible of war is the most severe test of any military technology or tactic. History is full of new ideas and inventions that have changed the face of battle, and it is just as full of those that got chewed up and spit out. To fail in battle is fatal, but it does make […]

Gold Rush (OOB) 001

We all know that Street Vans have pretty much unlimited potential, and MPC set out to prove it with several of their releases. One of the lesser known of these seems to be one of the wildest: Gold Rush! This extreme Show Rod Van is a testament to a time when there was no such […]

Biber 044

The Italeri 1/35 Biber came as a surprise to a lot of people, including me! This kit of a somewhat obscure machine looked promising in the box. However, you should never judge a model solely by its sprues, and the Biber was a surprisingly tough customer. I build this for my dad, since my Opa […]

Big guns and extra armour. What more do you need on a giant robotic war machine?

I love robots. I love them even more when they play “dress up” and put on all kinds of extra armour and guns. That’s why I was really glad to get a hold of the HGUC Full Armour Gundam 7th kit from a few years ago. Of course, while the kit is nice, there’s always […]

This is the box. It's nicely illustrated and you can't say they left any white space on the lid!

If there’s one thing Heller did well, it’s make kits of unique aircraft, especially French and Swedish ones. However, not all their kits are grand slams. Heller also made a line of tiny “cadet’ kits for beginners. One such kit is the awkwardly-scaled 1/170 Noratlas airlifter. It’s a pretty spartan little kit that’s now 50 […]
