  1. Skale Wings is to release a new tool 1/72nd Israeli Air Force Lockheed-Martin F-16D "Barak" kit - ref. IS72001 Source: https://www.facebook.com/skalewings/photos/a.1546834958952699.1073741828.1546827065620155/1560213570948171/?type=3&theater V.P.
  2. (Note - I've probably put this is the wrong section, it should have been in Ready for Inspection, but I'm not sure if I can move it easily....) Welcome to one of my now infrequent postings, as the title suggests, here's a Revell 1/48 Lunar Module I did earlier, about 39 years earlier in fact... this is my oldest surviving model of any kind. For some reason it's just always been there! First, a little history... Yup, that's me - No-more Shelf-space Junior, from Scale Models August 1978. (thanks to Jinxman for the pdf copy!) Note the financial confidence, quite unfounded as I was on a student grant at that time, if anyone remembers those. (I am no longer at that address). From that ad I got an Aurora Land of the Giants Spindrift (orange and bright green plastic, uuh), a Lindbergh wheel type space station, and a nice Revell 1/48 Apollo stack in all its totally inaccurate glory. The CSM and other parts did not survive the decades, and the other two got sold on. And I never got the Saturn and Vostok... Anyway here's the Lunar Module; I detailed it up from photos of the mockup then in the Science Museum. The landing legs were mostly rebuilt from EMA/Plastruct tubing, plume deflectors were toothpaste tube and straightened paperclip wire (stuck with Evo-Stik when it was actually glue), and foil - rather faded now - off a Cadbury's Caramac, another one of those things that isn't quite the same nowadays. Here's a photo round the back, where they kept the bins. Most of the details were rebuilt with plastic rod, and by some miracle nothing has ever got broken off! I had no airbrush then apart from one of those horrible Humbrol squirt-brushes so it was all hand painted in silver 11 and matt black. The windows were acetate, and now very yellowed, although you can't see this against the black interior. When I examined the interior with a torch I could see some attempt to stick something inside, although what I was intending to do I don't remember. Reference at that time was very hard to come by unless you were a smart alec and wrote to NASA. The base I made quite recently - it's the base you have seen in my aircraft photos, cut into a circle shape with "moon" built up with lumpy Tetrion and painted with tube acrylic. The placard is mounting board with lettering via a technical lettering stencil and rOtring pen - sort of in keeping with the era I made it in - I could have done something on the PC but, nah. Keep it 1978!
  3.

True or fake? Still waiting for a reliable source. To be followed V.P.
