A head's up - I'm expecting MPC's new 1/48 Space 1999: Eagle to hit in the next week or two; the Revell Master Series TIE Fighter and X-Wing should be here by Christmas Eve. We should have a shipment from Japan by Monday or Tuesday next week. So keep your eyes on our Twitter feed for updates!

08/29 Having some troubles with my internet connection. I do have a review of Space in Miniature 1.1: The New Scale Spacecraft Primer ... and if you're reading this, it means I finally was able to get it posted!

It's also been a busy week in the Store, with lots of new kits and restocks.
07/03 July's free, downloadable wallpaper is based on 1/72 SpaceWolf fighters built by Terry Miesle and Neil Prentice. I've been adding a bunch of hobby news as well, and there's a quick review of Polar Lights' new Small Display bases over on the Facebook page (and Google+ page, if you'd rather).
06/26 Jay Chladek is back with a sneak peek at the forthcoming Ranger Transgalactic Survey Craft from the movie Interstellar. I've just received news that our first batch of these kits will be shipping next week (along with, I hope, Polar Light's new 1/1000 Romulan Bird of Prey (TOS).
06/17 I finally figured out how to put together the images and video from Iron Modeler at Wonderfest - and here it is.
06/09 Wonderfest always throws my schedule out of whack - it takes me a good week to unpack, recover, get the Store back in operation, figure out where I put everything.... but I'm finally done. It's a bit late, but June's free, downloadable wallpaper has been posted. We did something a bit different this time - every single entry from last week's Wonderfest is in the picture.
I know there are lots of broken links, and broken pages, scattered throughout the site. I spend at least an hour a day, as many days a week as I can, working at fixing those problems. It's a monumental task though, given the sheer number of articles and entries posted over 18+ years. You can help - if you see something that's broke (besides the Links and Star Wars scales pages, I know about those), drop me a line and tell me the URL of the page, and the link that no longer works.
