Build: Monster Truck

Build: Monster Truck

Some builds go well. Some builds do not. My build of the Monster Truck was one of the latter. I think the result turned out fairly well, but I have only myself to blame for the parts that didn’t. And the one thing that I was most worried about before starting the build? Yeah, it’s […]

Build: Goofy

Build: Goofy

It’s time for another other-side-of-the-world exclusive model build! Thanks again to Instagram’s @tomz961 for the incredible gift of sending me the three character models that are exclusive to Disneyland Shanghai.

Sneak Peek: P-40 Warhawk

This is why you subscribe to the Metal Earth Newsletter. You get nifty little sneak peeks from time to time, like this teaser of a P-40 Warhawk model currently in development (note the little footnote in the bottom right, where it says “not the final model”). Gotta say I’m digging the paint job with the […]
