This is a lovely hobby. US publication Model Airplane News (October 2018). Truly inspirational.


Airfix Model World 96

Posted: October 6, 2018 in General, Hobby, Magazines

Out in the UK now, Airfix Model World (issue) 96. Nice Blenheim cover, as they (Airfix) have a new kit in 1/48 on sale.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.

How about this then?

There will never be a shortage of WWII kits, if you can find them that is. From Chinese manufacturer Takom we now have this German 16t Strabokran in 1/35 which is sort of nice.

And coming out of Japan from Amusing Hobby at the same time (what are the odds?) you have this kit, also in 1/35. Only, they throw in a Ferdinand tank as well. I can see a nice little diorama here.

Nice box art.

More nostalgia from Airfix

The Vintage Classics line from Airfix is a success, and here we have the Russian T34 tank in 1/76. Good to see the classic artwork again.

Visit the Airfix store here.

Busy days. Having some fun organizing the old (and new) collection in my new place. On the left: Deep Purple family stuff (Tour Programmes, rare magazines etc). On the right: Reserved for Babymetal only.

The Vinyls are finally handled correctly, easy access being all important (see earlier post). Seen here are fairly new Vinyls. The older stuff is getting organized as we speak (great fun to look them over again). The Soundtracks are finding their way to the TV room.

Speaking of which… Here is a nice little corner that I just put in place. On the wall: Rainbow live, signed by Ronnie James Dio (recently showcased on this blog). Signed Callisto (Xena villain) photograph by actress Hudson Leick. Framed Babymetal “Megitsune” poster from Tower Records (Shinjuku, Japan – has also been highlighted earlier on this blog). Yesterday, at about midnight, I blasted some Judas Priest and Babymetal at high volume (testing the new TV in the process) and went outside to check what the neighbours might hear. Pretty much nothing. Good to know. I also have a nice 1960s Exhibition going. Got to have some fun.

(Thank you Kalle for all your help)

The Great Electric Train Show

Posted: September 7, 2018 in Cool stuff, General, Hobby

This ad popped up on Facebook and I have to say that this event (The Great Electric Train Show) on October 13/14 at the Arena MK in Milton Keynes (UK) looks like a good weekend for the hobby enthusiast.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.

Lancaster from Airfix

Pretty nice box art of an Avro Lancaster B.III warming up the engines before takeoff on this 1:72 kit from Airfix. Good to see that Airfix is still going strong.
