Just added what I call “The Bar” into the hobby room in the new place. Strictly for medical purposes naturally. Johnnie Walker, Gibson´s London Dry Gin and (a small sized bottle of) Jack Daniels. I seldom drink these days, but I just enjoy the thought of having these in the hobby room.

(Thank you for a good day Kalle)



Well I have some good news since it is now official that Swedish rockers Velvet Insane is to release their self titled debut album in late February (22 in these parts). It will be available on Vinyl, which is a good thing. Friends of this blog will know that I have mentioned these chaps before (they are from my neck of the woods after all), and I did publish an interview with Jesper Lindgren a while back.

Good luck.

Tattoo Spirit 97

Posted: January 28, 2019 in Cool stuff, General, Magazines


This is a good cover. German publication Tattoo Spirit (issue) 97. They always have great covers, but I have to say that this one is a cut above the rest. Not sure who the woman on the cover is but she is one hell of a model.


Avions 227

This looks like a good read. French publication Avions (issue) 227. Excellent cover. Sadly this title is not available on import here in Sweden, I would have bought this for the cover alone if it had been.

Airfix Catalogue 2019

Posted: January 27, 2019 in Cool stuff, General, Hobby

The 2019 Airfix Catalogue has arrived. I have always enjoyed looking through these. I remember when the hobby was so big that Airfix had a Swedish edition. Those days are over, but the brand lives on.

Long may it live.

Best movie idea ever?

Posted: January 26, 2019 in General, TV & Movies

This film premieres in February and if it pops up in my neck of the woods I will see it. I will certainly buy the DVD. First of all, Sam Elliott is a great actor, and it would seem that this film suits him rather well. And with a title like “The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot”, how could it be anything but brilliant?

The trailer should go viral. Check it out here.

Maxi Tex 63

Out today in good old Norway, Maxi Tex (issue) 63. Got to love Tex Willer. It will be interesting to see if this title too will be imported to Sweden (see earlier post about the regular edition).

Fingers crossed.
