    EXTERMINATE!!!!! 1:8 scale Comet Miniatures Dalek Mk 3

    I've been trying to find one of these kits for a reasonable price for quite some time and fianlly I managed to snag one that didn't make the wallet have palpitations. Due the excitement of getting this, I had to put the current Walrus build to one side and start this almost immediately! Its not...

    New MPC/Round 2 Carfo Eagle - build #3 for me

    New MPC/Round 2 Cargo Eagle - build #3 Last Wednesday I went to the local ParcelFarce depot to pick up my pre-order shipment from HobbyLinc. In total it cost me (including postage and HMRC ransom demand) £4 less that a well known UK SF model retailer wants for it and I've already got it instead...

    Thunderbirds Fireflash and TB4

    Since there are comments about lack of activity, I thought I'd post my latest build here :) Its the lovely Aoshima Fireflash kit: which if course comes with the Elevator cars and runway sections which predisposes you to build the "Trapped in the Sky" diorama. However I want to do an...

    "Studio Scale" SHADO Mobile from Kits for Cash

    So I've decided its time to stop just looking at this huge box of resin and do something about it! I first heard about this kit at Telford in 2014, talking to Ian from Kits for Cash when I bought the UFO kit (which is still unbuilt :( ). Then last year they actually had it with them, it looked...

    Imai 1:144 Thunderbird 2

    Back at the start of May I decided to make a start on my IMAI 1:144 Thunderbird 2 that I picked up earlier this year. This post is an amalgam of several posts I'd made on another forum so please forgive me if it comes over a bit disjointed as far as tenses are concerned! I thought I'd...

    Does anyone have good plans and/or photos of Thunderbird 2 pod interior?

    About a month ago I received this in the post from Japan which I am incredibly excited about owning needless to say: Considering its size, I have decided I'd like to build an interior to the pod, so I'm currently looking for good photos or plans for an interior for a pod. I'm not particularly...

    Thunderbirds Mole by Aoshmia

    This kit is "nominally" 1:72 scale. What is mildly amusing is that one side is pleasantly covered in decals (the side I'm showing mostly in the photos) while the other side is virtually bare! Looks liek the kit designers only had photos of one side :) This was built pretty much ot of the box...

    Thunderbird 2 launch diorama

    Finished this at the weekend but haven't had a chance to do proper photos so here is a little taster: and if we zoom in on that a bit... The LEDs in the engines are flickering one so I tried to make a movie to show this but the camera over-exposed it a bit. You can see the short clip...

    Aoshima Thunderbird 1 build

    I just can't help myself, its an addiction I tell you! So stuck in the house unable to use the shed to paint I looked through the stash to find*something*that would be fun to build. Needless to say, this appeared in my search like a hypersonic vision from the future: Obligatory Sprue Shot...
