AK Interactive Weathering Pencils

Watercolour pencils?! Is this the latest and greatest for paint and weathering or is it something that we buy on a whim and never use again? (let’s be honest here, we all have bought certain paint and weathering products after watching someone using them with great results and after a couple miserable attempts we put them away to never use them again…) I know a selected few have been using watercolour pencils for...

Hasegawa Falke Antigravity Armored Raider Pkf.85 1/20

Falke Antigravity Armored Raider Pkf.85 Maschinen Krieger Hasegawa – Nr. 64001 – 1/20 Getting started on my first Maschinen Krieger (see previous review, MK44 Ammoknights) I was both curious and eager to find out if all of these Hasegawa Ma.K. kits are of such high standard or if I was just lucky randomly picking the MK44 Ammoknights as my first to build so I cracked open this box and started to go through the sprues and...

will’s stem cell adventure

Accidents happens all the time and most of the time you heal and hospitals are able to fix you. Sadly sometimes the damage is permanent, or impossible to repair via surgery – or that the needed treatment just isn’t available in your country?! Will had one of those accidents which left him paralysed from the neck down, but through years of hard work he regained some functionality – but far from all, and living with...

Upcoming Book Reviews

It’s been winter – a bl**dy cold, snowy and miserable one too – and many days have just been to cold for modelling so i started reading a couple books instead and got inspired to expand the reference library. I usually don’t look at others work when I paint and weather my scale models but recently I’ve found a lot of inspiration looking at others work, so even if I don’t copy what I see it gets the...
