Just to remind everyone: I will be attending the MCM Expo at the Manchester Central Exhibition Centre on Saturday 21st July with a number of my models and dioramas on dispay and up for sale. If there is any specific model you are interested in I can bring it to the exhibition for you to collect...
I'm going to be making an exhibition of myself.
I will be taking a stand at the Manchester MCM Expo on 21st July http://www.manchestermcmexpo.com/ selling my build ups. For a 10% deposit I will gladly bring any model from my collection...
Captain Venus Zodiac of the Fireball XL5-A: daughter of Steve Zodiac and Dr Venus.
By the way I am looking to sell this and my other completed models to make more room. Please let me know if you're interested in anything.
A friend sent me this link asking for my opinion http://www.airbrush-pro.co.uk/index1.html
First reaction is you get what you pay for, but have no actual experience of the ABs listed. Anybody tried one of these?
Please may I heartily recommend a new book on figure and diorama building due for publication in February 2010. I know the author personally and I'm sure he'd be very upset if you didn't buy a copy :)
Just watched the first two episodes of The Prisoner on Blu-Ray last night and was extremely impressed: the level of colour and detail was amazing. And for the purists it's in4:3 with the option of surround sound or original mono.
I recently discovered that Amazon.com are offering for sale the soundtrack to Thunderbird 6 as an MP3 download, as the CD is now discontinued.
That's the good news. The bad news is that they will not sell the download if you do not live in the United States.
As I am more than happy to pay the...
I was recently looking for some models on the internet for building a diorama, and a friend had suggested that I try Barcelona Universal Models, based in Spain.
When I found their website I discovered two things:
1. The company likes to be known by the initial letters in its name.
Just finished the new Thunderbirds novel, "Action Alert!" and the most polite way of putting it is that the book is disappointing.
Ms Verba's first Thunderbirds book, whilst hardly great literature, was entertaining in a join the dots kind of way: linking together what back story elements were...
Did anyone else see Mr Anderson this morning on the BBC1 breakfast programme? He did two five minute slots at about 7:20 and 8:50 and was asked the usual inane questions while the presenters were trying to plug this evening's programmes on BBC2.
Whilst it was first thing on a Sunday morning Mr...
HLJ are advertising a new TB2 kit
The kit features "accurately scaled and detailed TB-2" along with TBs 1, 4 5 and the mole.
When I sent an e-mail to them asking if it was a re-issue of the old "big" TB2 with rubber wheels I got a response saying that the...
Noticed that Comet's new Fireball XL5 kit is being advertised at 8" long at 1:200 scale, which would make the "real" thing 133'.
However, flicking through Graham Bleatham's Supermarionation Cross -Sections book gives a length of 300', which would make the kit 1:450 scale.
Just watched the local news last night, and saw a guy in Warrington who has built his own full-size, working model of the 1989 Batmobile. Don't worry, if you fancy one for nipping down to the supermarket in he is taking orders: just don't expect any change from £150,000.
