Build: Enfys Nest’s Swoop Bike

Build: Enfys Nest’s Swoop Bike

First of all, apologies for the liberties I’ve taken with the header image for this post. I don’t usually like editing the photos, but I just had too much fun with posing Chewie, but it wasn’t as clear what I was going for without adding in the blur effects and background. This is a model […]

Unlocking Soon: Two Harry Potter Models

Unlocking Soon: Two Harry Potter Models

Okay, so I’m being a little silly, but it’s late and I’m tired, so I get the privilege of being goofy. And I’m thinking of “unlocking” in terms of achievements, or bonus content in games and whatnot, where something is given as a reward. But in this case, it’s not a reward for an achievement, […]

Coming Soon: Pisa and Mini Lions

Coming Soon: Pisa and Mini Lions

After what seems like a long quiet period, Piececool has added 2 or 7 new models, depending on how you count it. The first on is the Torre di Pisa. Yes, that’s the “English” name of it. Don’t ask me. The other 1 (or 6) model(s) is/are the Mini Lion Dance model(s), basically miniature versions […]

I happened to notice a post about an extra model, commented on it to help direct the member to the appropriate location for sales posts, […]

Two Bits of News

One slightly delayed, one fresh off the press. Late last week, Piececool added the Garuda Coronet model, and just tonight, Metal Earth added the F/A-18 Super Hornet to the coming soon page. The Super Hornet was teased in a recent Metal Earth Newsletter (as well as on the back of another aviation model), but now […]

Checklists Revived! (And Improved)

Checklists Revived! (And Improved)

It’s alive! I mean, they’re alive! But not really. Because they are inanimate, non-physical collections of ones and zeros. But you get my point. After much more time than it should have taken, I have finally restored my Metal Earth and Piececool Checklists to function properly. I’ve had to relocate them to a new home, […]
