Porsche 911 Turbo

Published: February 21, 2020
Company: Revell, Inc.

This is a Level 2 kit and contains 87 pieces. The kit is molded in white, chrome, clear, and clear red plastic. The instruction manual is typical Revell with drawings and pointers.

This kit looks a lot like the Monogram kit I built on my grandmothers back porch in the 70’s. Some web snooping has led to this being linked to the 1976 Monogram release but I couldn’t tell you for sure.… more

Wow! If packaging was what it was all about this would be the premier. Not only are all 6 sides emblazoned with super cool pictures, even the inside leaves of the bottom are covered in Crash, Boink, Biffs, and Pows!

Inside the box you'll find 3 black sprues, 2 clear sprues, a sprue of chrome plated parts, decals, instructions, and a pamphlet. The total parts count is 112 pieces for the… more


B-29 Big Ed Photo Etch and Mask Set

Published: November 13, 2020
Company: Eduard


The molds for the 1/48 scale Revellogram B-29 were born of Monogram’s loins more than 30 years ago, in 1977. Needed or not, Eduard has seen fit to bless us with a huge amount of detail for this monster of a kit. The truth is, Monogram did a pretty good job of detailing kits during this time, so Eduard may have their work cut out for them. Let’s take a look and find out.… more

Published: July 3, 2014
Book Author(s): Yefim Gordon & Sergey Komissarov
Company: Hikoki Publications

This isn’t book it’s a tome, and a well done one at that. The large 8.5” x 11” pages are chock full of information, photographs and drawings. The book is broken down into 7 chapters the first four of which are divided by specific eras with the last three tackling specific subjects. One entire chapter deals with the downing of both KAL flight KE902 and KE007.

This is a quality book, not… more

Ghostbusters Ecto-1

Company: Round 2 Models

Straight out of 1984, look out Zuul, it’s the Ghostbusters ECTO 1! Well actually it’s the 1/25 snap assembly kit from Round 2 Models but it’s just as cool as the full size version. The kit consists of 54 Plastic parts, 4 screws, 2 metal axles, decals and stickers, and finally a simple 4 step illustrated manual. The detail is good enough and the chrome parts look great.
