’64 Chevy Fleetside Update 1: Good Foundations

If it’s one thing that pickup truck ads are always going on and on about, it’s how tough their respective products are. Of course, in today’s world, being tough isn’t enough; luxury, power, economy and style all have to meld together. There was a time, though, when that wasn’t the case. Trucks were simpler, and […]

The Detail is IN the box, but not on it!

The old adage of not judging a book by its cover is sound. Sometimes, some of the most interesting things are found in the most  unlikely, or least attention-grabbing places! A perfect example of that is the Revell 1/25 1964 Chevy C/K Fleetside. With clean but not-overly-exciting styling and a box so boring it makes […]

Party (?) like it’s 1984!

Well, it’s finally done!  The Light Fern Metallic Citation X-11 that I’ve been working on has finally been completed, and man, is it… subdued!  The Citation X-11 notchback is a weird enough thing to make a kit of, but to make this kit into a 1984 model in such a rare and geeky colour only […]

X Marks the Spot!

The masses have spoken, and just like the automotive press of the 1980’s, they have chosen to go with Citation for the win! The Revell Citation X11  beat out its competition, but it wasn’t a total walk-away. Here’s how it broke down: 1982+ Citation X11: 41 Votes 2004 GTO: 29 Votes 1988 Beretta GTU: 25 […]

Get Out and Vote, this Notchvember!

November is a month often associated with choices. In the United States, the elections are always held in November, and for the rest of us, our choices are often centered around what weight of coat to put on or whether to try and get one more week out of our summer tires or switch, begrudgingly, […]

How Low Can You Go?

The originally much-lauded, later much-villified, GM “X-Car” of the early 1980’s is not something a lot of people care to remember. The Citation’s “sporty” version was the X-11, and Revell has seen fit to reissue their Citation X11 as a lowrider. Check it out, and remember, it’s unlikely ANY car can get lower opinions than […]

Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda – a JASDF Typhoon!

While evaluating the JSF’s competition, the Japanese evaluated the Eurofighter Typhoon. Imagine, as I did with my 1/72 Revell Germany F-13B Typhoon, what would have been if they had chosen the more conventional Typhoon over the costly and unproven F-35. Check it out under the What-If section of the Planes tab!

Not Fake, but Definitely Forger-y

Here’s a build for those who are fans of Russian aircraft, particularly those that are a bit obscure. Check out the Revell/ACE 1/172 Forger-A: it’s not the best kit of Russia,s shipboard V/STOL, but it is interesting!
