Humber Armored Car from Bronco

Posted: March 21, 2017 in General, Hobby


I like this vehicle, the Humber Armored Car. Here it is in 1/35 from Bronco Models. Would it not be nice to have one of these parked in the front yard?

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.


And from the HQs of Airfix Model World we get this special edition, titled Scale Modelling. Dealing exclusively, it would seem, with the De Haviland Mosquito.


King Tiger from Ammo

Posted: March 17, 2017 in Cool stuff, General, Hobby


This limited edition King Tiger in 1/35 from Ammo is getting positive press at the moment. What you get is the March 1945 King Tiger with the possibility to add details that would have been there had the war continued into July 1945. Details that were on the drawing board at the time of the capitulation of Germany.

Airfix Model World 77

This arrived in the mail today. UK publication Airfix Model World (issue) 77. Always a good read.

Good cover too.


Oh it is just a model, but you have got to love the 1932 Pontoon-Hydroplane Speedboat. UK publication Model Boats (April 2017) has really come up with a successful cover this time around.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.

PC Gamer action cover

Posted: March 11, 2017 in General, Hobby, Magazines


This is a good cover. In reality, the Vikings were not on horseback, but I guess you can create a fantasy world in which you borrow from everything and it is OK by the gamers. This is UK publication PC Gamer (April 2017).

Nice action cover though.


This is a nice cover. UK publication Model Military International (issue) 132.

Got to get that hobby room…
