  1. Following on from our Rod, Tube and Wire Store we've just introduced a new unit aimed at storing sheet materials such as plasticard, card and brass. It also has sections for storing strip materials. The Sheet Store has a range of slots, varying in depth so that sheets can be stored even after they have been partially used. There are three drawers and an open tray to enable the storage of smaller bits. We can also supply the Storage Tubes to protect thin strips of material from low flying plastic aircraft and tanks and to stop you getting poked in the eye!
  2. We will be attending two shows in the remainder of this year. 10th October - Blue Lamp Model Exhibition, Tally Ho Conference Centre, Pershore Road, Birmingham, B5 7RN 13-14th November - Scale Model World, Telford. For 2022 we currently only have one show booked but hopefully we'll start the year with Bolton Show closely followed by Halifax/Huddersfield. 5th-6th February - Stafford Railway Circle, Staffordshire County Show Ground.
  3. We've recently introduced a new unit to our range of modular storage. The unit is designed to securely prop up your tablet or instructions and can be angled to suit. Alternative sides are provided to blend in with the existing range or as a standalone unit. Full details on our website.
  4. Aircraft Paint Stand & Accessories EBMA Hobby & Craft We all have all at some time struggled when painting and or decaling in that situation where you need a third hand. EBMA have now come up with a modular aircraft stand to help out with this. It will take a wide variety of 1/72 aircraft and some smaller 1.48 such as single engine fighters. The base dimensions when built up are 252mm x 236mm. There are then four slots in each side of the top of the T for the wing supports, and 10 in the body for tail supports. There are four different height tail supports (30mm, 40mm, 50mm and 60mm high), and 3 pairs of different height wing supports (.35mm, 5mm and 55mm high). These parts are on one flat sheet and just press out. Filled with my 1/72 Canberra to give scale Construction is simple, and will require some PVA to glue the sections together, and having some clamps handy will be a boon for getting strong joints. The joints will also be stronger if you use proper woodworking PVA glue, which can be sourced online easily and cheaply if you’re in need. Instructions are found online to save paper and cost, and yes you do really need to look at them. If you have built any kind of flat pack you already know this! This set like many others from EBMA comes with little magnets which you can use for to keep more than one of their modular units together. Large Supports If you find you want or need more height to the stands then there is an extra pack of larger support stands which can be purchased. These are four tail supports (80mm, 90mm, 100mm & 110mm high), and 4 pairs of wing supports (75mm, 85mm, 95mm and 105mm high). These parts are on one flat sheet and just press out. Filled with my 1/48 Me 262 to give scale Twin Boom Supports If you are making or going to make a twin tail boom aircraft then there are also stands which can be purchased for these. These are four tail supports (35mm, 45mm, 55mm & 65mm). These parts are on one flat sheet and just press out. Conclusion This is a well designed stand system which should suit a lot of modeller. The ability to buy extra parts keeps the initial price of the basis unit down. As well as this stand EBMA make others specifically for armour and railroad modellers. Very highly recommended.

  5. Paint Rack (Tamiya & Gunze PR002) EBMA Hobby & Craft Paint storage becomes a necessity when you accumulate more than a few dozen tins/bottles/tubs, and wall racks are a great place to store them and retain complete visibility to the contents. There are lots of brands on the market, and many of them use MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) or Perspex that is laser cut to shape and can be self-assembled, which is great for keeping shipping costs to a minimum. EBMA have created their own line of racks, drawers and caddies from 6mm and 3mm MDF that are pre-cut ready for assembly. This one holds 42 bottles of Tamiya, Gunze or similar sized brands in a small wall-mounted form factor of 305 x 305 x 70mm. It arrives in a long narrow box that contains 15 parts, some of which are separated by card dividers for safety, with a small sheet of “instructions” completing the kit. The speech-marks are there because the sheet refers you to the EBMA website where you’ll find complete colour instructions in PDF form, which does a little bit to help reduce consumption of our forests, on the basis that every little helps. Your tablet, phone or screen are also less likely to blow away during construction. Construction is simple, and will require some PVA to glue the outer sections together, and having some clamps handy will be a boon for getting strong joints. The joints will also be stronger if you use proper woodworking PVA glue, which can be sourced online easily and cheaply if you’re in need. Don’t use your Klearfix, as it probably won’t have the necessary strength and is almost certain to be the most expensive way to put it together. What were you thinking? The end panels are slotted into the offset bottle rack parts, then two stiffeners are placed from top to bottom in the centre section, followed by adding the top and bottom panels, which are glued in, as are the two rear stiffeners that are fitted to the top and bottom of the back plane. The top stiffeners have two key-hole shaped holes cut into them that accepts a pair of screws to allow you to fix the rack to the wall. There is also a curved cut-out in the top rack part to allow adjustment of the screws if you should need to. Don’t forget to let that glue cure fully before you load it up though, or you’ll be sad. I tried Gunze and Tamiya pots in the rack and they fit great, as do Lifecolor pots, although there’s a wee bit more play around the pots. Other brands such as AK’s Real Colors (sic (if you’re British)) should also fit perfectly and I can attest to that having done so, as you can see above. The shot above shows the strengthening plates that also hold the rack square, as well as having holes for attachment to the wall. Conclusion These are well-designed paint racks are extremely space-friendly, assuming your modelling area has walls of course. They are neat and will keep your paints tidy and visible, and at the price they’re selling them for they’re absolutely excellent value. Get some – I’m going to be putting in an order for three or four more as soon as I can, as they’re so compact on the wall that you can put your whole paint stash out of harm’s way and free up some desk or drawer space for other things. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  6. There are many times at exhibitions where we've heard people say that they love our products but they don't have a workshop. Well, we're now working on a range of travel cases. It's early days but we thought you'd like to see what we're working on and feel free to chip in with thoughts and ideas. The initial thoughts are to produce cases based around A3 and A4 cutting mats, i.e. the removable front will be sized so that it can support a mat. The interiors of the cases will be customisable to cater for the different paint mixes people use and personal requirements. Drawers will be available to store the paints as per the existing range and also in plain format. Cases will have a carry handle. No decision has been made on the material yet, either MDF or plywood. Ply is lighter but more expensive and crucially not usually flat unless braced. MDF weighs a bit more, isn't as strong but is normally flat, or at least the wood we've been getting is. Here's an early build of an A3 sized case. Whilst the frontal area is just over A3 size, the depth is around 185mm.
  7. Two drawer paint storage unit for 36ml Bottles EBMA Hobby & Craft We all have a larger stash of paint than we think we have, and finding storage for it is not always easy. There are the vertical racks (Which EBMA do as well) however some of us (me included) prefer drawers for paint. EBMA have created their own line of racks, drawers and tool storage etc made from MDF that are pre-cut ready for assembly. These are designed for the typical bottles used by Gunze and Tamiya and hold 33 bottles per drw, so 66 in total Filled with my Gunze paints to give an idea of use Construction is simple, and will require some PVA to glue the sections together, and having some clamps handy will be a boon for getting strong joints. The joints will also be stronger if you use proper woodworking PVA glue, which can be sourced online easily and cheaply if you’re in need. Instructions are found online to save paper and cost, and yes you do really need to look at them. If you have built any kind of flat pack you already know this! This set like many others from EBMA comes with little magnets which you can use for to keep more than one of their modular units together. Conclusion This is a well designed storage system for all modellers which will help keep your paints where you want them, with the added advantage they fit together. EBMA also do a wide range of these for most of the paint bottles/jars currently available. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  8. Tool Stand EBMA Hobby & Craft We all have a plethora of tools bought over the years and storing them can be pain at times, even more so for the modellers who dont have a dedicated area to work in. There are lots of brands on the market, and many of them use MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) or Perspex that is laser cut to shape and can be self-assembled, which is great for keeping shipping costs to a minimum. EBMA have created their own line of racks, drawers and tool storage etc made from MDF that are pre-cut ready for assembly. This one is designed for tools and comes in a modular design for the main area allowing the modeller to choose how they wish to configure it. There are two of the "pliers racks" seen here on the right, three of the "file bins" seen in the centre, and 3 of the "brush bins" seen here on the left. There are storage areas in front of the bins, and underneath three slim drawers. Rack filled with random tools/brushes to give an idea of use Construction is simple, and will require some PVA to glue the outer sections together, and having some clamps handy will be a boon for getting strong joints. The joints will also be stronger if you use proper woodworking PVA glue, which can be sourced online easily and cheaply if you’re in need. Instructions are found online to save paper and cost, and yes you do really need to look at them. If you have built any kind of flat pack you already know this! This set like many others from EBMA comes with little magnets which you can use for to keep more than one of their modular units together. Conclusion This is a well designed storage system for all modellers which will help keep your tools together so you dont spend time hunting for them. Very highly recommended.
