Who can smell the glue?


Wonder Woman

This looks like a good read. US publication Fine Scale Modeler (December 2018). A lot of stuff from my youth is still out there in force.

Spotted this AC/DC Tour Truck in 1/32 from Revell. I like it when great rock bands cross-over like this with their brand.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.

Having a lot of fun in my new place decorating little corners like it is one big Man Cave. Which it is. This shelf is dedicated to music (magazines, DVDs) and I decided to add a bit of Purple nostalgia as eye candy. What you see is Didi Zill´s Deep Purple book, a copy of “Stormbringer” signed by Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Glenn Hughes and David Coverdale (see earlier post), the gatefold sleeve of “Made In Europe” and some additional stuff that looks cool.

Got to rock´n´roll!

Operation Silver Bayonet from Italeri

Posted: November 20, 2018 in General, Hobby

First Vietnam War diorama to arrive in 1:72, produced by Italeri. What you see on the box is what you get. Operation Silver Bayonet was a battle that took place in 1965.

Saving space

Posted: November 13, 2018 in General, Hobby, My countryside dream, TV & Movies

Took these shots in the early hours this morning in my new place. I have undertaken a project that will save a lot of space as far as my DVD collection is concerned. A good chunk of it will from now on be handled like this (I think these images speaks for themselves). I just organize it all in categories like Western (as seen here), WWII (Classic & Modern), Comedy, Sci-Fi etc etc. I have done about 35% of the collection at this point and I will leave about 10% as it is in the original boxes. At the end of the day it will be a good solution and I quite like browsing the covers in this way.

Nine decades

First magazine cover of 2019 (US publication Model Airplane News, January issue). Excellent cover, and I love that they now celebrate 90 years in the business. Think of all the good people that it took for that to happen.
