    Whilst the likes of TV21 and Countdown have been scanned into digital format I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of scans of the Look-In Starcruiser comic strip?

    I have just read that Lindberg models have ceased trading. Whilst not known for producing SF kits they have kept in production some interesting, but slightly obscure, models over the years.

    Cheap airbrushes

    A friend sent me this link asking for my opinion First reaction is you get what you pay for, but have no actual experience of the ABs listed. Anybody tried one of these? Barry

    New Modelling Book

    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 :) Take care, Barry

    The Prisoner Blu-Ray

    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.

    Thunderbird 6 Soundtrack

    I recently discovered that 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...

    What's in a name?

    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. 2. The...

    Out of curiosity, does anyone know if Tamiya Thinners, particularly the big bottles, have run foul of our friends in the EU? Of late I have not seen any for sale in either physical or internet shops.

    New Thunderbirds Novel

    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...

    Anderson Interview on BBC Breakfast Programme

    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...

    How long is it?

    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. Any thoughts?

    And you think we're obsessed?

    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.
