Model Hobby News - Kits, Photoetch and Model Shows


I hope everyone had a chance to spend some time with their family this long weekend and for the Holidays. I'm guessing we all put on a few pounds for sure. Of course, doing some hobby shopping is always fun with the down time, but the model companies have a lot to get out the door before 2016 rolls around.

Let's start today with some news. Miniart and TrackLink are having an online model contest. The contest runs from 1st December 2015 through to 31st March 2016. The entererd mdel must be a Miniart kit, but that shouldn't be an issue. They make kits of figures, diorama subjects, trucks, tanks, motorcycles, electric Trams, Jeeps, and more. You get 4 months till the deadline, plenty of time to come up with something interesting.

If you want to voice your opinion about some of the next models from Round2, now's your chance. Jump over to their online Survey and let them know. I'm not sure how long it will stay active, so the sooner the better. This will support them and help them decide what to do in the future, so give them a hand and do the Survey.

The Model Car Garage has just released some new photo-etch detail sheets. Including sheets for the MENG F350 SD, the Moebius Chrysler 300, and the Revell Oldsmobile 442 (with the Linda Vaghn figure, but works on previous issues as well). They also now make a sheet for the Moebius F100.

Note that the MENG F350 set includes markings to make a Harley Davidson Edition version of the truck. The side emblems also include F250 and F350 badges. The Moebius pickup truck badges allow you to make an F100, F250, or F350 (though, an F250 / F350 would have a Dana 60 rear end, if you want to replace the Moebius 9-inch rear). It also includes the badges for the Ranger, Custom, Sport Custom, Camper Special, and XLT versions. These should work as well on the AMT 1970's Ford trucks too.

To round out this morning, how about some model contests !
