Scale Model News and Updates
A few things going on. I'll start by mentioning the next issue of Scale Model Life should be done soon. Summer is over and I have more time in my schedule to build and put it all together for publishing. As I mentioned previously, this next issue will have cars in it. I think readers will enjoy the subjects (it has a kind of retro vibe to it).
With the first of September just past, it's the fourth quarter of the year for model companies to make their last dash of new kits coming out. Some of them we've waited for almost a year since they were announced. You can see all of Revell's new kits by following this link to their PDF flyer. Round2 mentions most of their upcoming kits on the site here.
Of course there are many more kits coming out, from cars to spaceships, but the online information isn't quite as evident and easy to find. I try to keep up to date with most of them, and I keep the Rocketfin site current as possible on new models coming out. So if you visit your favorite categories / pages here, you will see the new kits mentioned as usual near the top of the pages.
I recently, after more than a year, finished my Italeri PT Boat model. Follow this link to see pictures of that kit. It's a very good kit. I don't build boats often, they're not my expertise, so I took my time building it.
My next long term project is a Moebius Seaview kit, from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. You can see my beginning progress by following the link here. This kit is the very first version released a few years back.
I also want to mention here two models shows loaded with images to spark your imagination. Grab some more coffee and enjoy!
PS. Ever looked at graphics for polished fingernails in that section of the store? You know, the woman's section? I'm pretty sure that's where the flower design below on the model came from. I only say that because I have a set of them, but never figured out how to fit them into a model car subject's design. But I'd say the builder did a great job of putting them to good use here. Check those decals out the next time you're in the store!
