Model News and Updates
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
I also want to mention here two models shows loaded with
images to spark your imagination. Grab some more coffee
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.
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 department store!
