UK publication Toy Soldier & Model Figure (issue) 227. Boy, you can almost hear the battle when you see that diorama of Custer´s last stand.

Not bad.

Airfix Model World 82

Posted: August 15, 2017 in General, Hobby, Magazines

This one arrived in the mail today, UK publication Airfix Model World (issue) 82. Cover art is from the new 1/48 P-51D Mustang box from Airfix. Poster of the P-51D in different colour profiles comes as a nice bonus.

This looks like a good read. UK publication Collectors Gazette (September 2017). Great title for a magazine like this, fantastic cover.

Top notch.

Got to love this. Final proof then that clever people are into Babymetal! The Radio Konton YouTube Channel uploaded a video of them sending the three Babymetal Funky Pop Figures (dolls) into Space a couple of days ago! The balloon exploded on a certain height and the journey back to earth was a little more on the hairy side. But they had a safe landing (meaning, they survived intact), and Radio Konton are now the proud owners of the only Funky Pop Figures that has ever entered Space. It just had to be Babymetal! This is cool on so many levels.

Watch the video here.

This looks like a good read. UK publication Toy Soldier Collector (issue) 77. That diorama on the cover is pretty awesome.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.

This looks like a good read. UK publication Model Airplane International (issue) 145.

French publication Modèle Magazine (August 2017). Nice Stuka model. I would worry that I would crash that plane. After all, it is a thing of beauty and it probably cost a bit too. I guess you can arrive at this point once you have been at it for some time.
