Interesting cover

Posted: June 28, 2017 in Cool stuff, General, Hobby, Magazines

This looks like a good read. UK publication Scale Aircraft Modelling (July 2017). I can´t actually identify the aircraft on this cover, which is rare. Not your prettiest looking bird is it? I might buy this magazine if I spot it.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.

Got to love Japan. This is a publication called Go Out – The Camp Style Book (issue) 9. I absolutely love this cover.

Well this looks nice. German publication Pictures Das Foto-Magazin (July/August 2017).

As for me, I have a rainy day outside my window…

This is a nice cover. UK publication Scale Aviation Modeller International (July 2017). Makes me want to have a crack at that hobby room ASAP.

Well, I do have my eye on some property that would fit the bill right now…

Took a snapshot of the growing Babymetal collection. This one is going to keep me busy for quite a while. I would say that the foundation is in place, now I need to go for the rare and obscure stuff (like Sakura Gakuin, the limited edition Babymetal singles etc). Also, the magazines and the books. I discovered and blogged about Babymetal for the first time back on March 9. I had seen some videos then and decided that I had to look into this. On March 15 “Metal Resistance” arrived and I was blown away by the sheer power of the group. On the same day it was announced that “Live At Tokyo Dome” was going to be released and the trailer for that was obviously awesome. On March 16 my first magazine popped up, Metal Hammer 293 with the big Metallica/Babymetal feature. On March 17 the “Live At Wembley” CD arrived and I wrote a detailed review. And finally, on March 20 “Live At Budokan” popped up. Well that nailed it.

I have never looked back. Babymetal is part of this blog now, like it or not, and you will find 150 posts on them so far. That is an awful lot of history right there. On June 6 I posted the “Live At Tokyo Dome” review and watched it go viral. It was translated into Japanese and Spanish and Trinkelbonker never had more visitors than June 6-June 8. I was quite stunned by the interest. Things are back to normal now but it is nice to see that Babymetal has that interest out there.

I do have a few DVDs that I still intend to review and the general tone of what you can expect is there for all to see. Babymetal is a unique phenomenon, nothing like it has existed before and who knows where this will all go in the future. It is very interesting though and it feels good to collect something with a bit of passion again.

(Thank you Kalle for your continued support)

Coming up, the new kit “On The Great Plains” in 1/35 from Master Box. Another box in the Indian Wars Series.

Looks great.
