Revell Star Wars Republic Star Destroyer

The Venator-class Star Destroyer, also known as the Venator-class Destroyer, Republic attack cruiser, and later Imperial attack cruiser, was one of the capital ships used extensively by the Galactic Republic during the later parts of the Clone Wars, as well as by the Galactic Empire. It was designed and constructed by Kuat Drive Yards and Allanteen Six shipyards. A stock ship was 1,137 meters long, making it one of the largest capital ships capable of atmospheric

Tamiya ’98 Toyota Corolla WRC 1/24

In its long and illustrious career in the World Rally Championships, Toyota has mainly used the Celica as its flagship. In 1997, however, a rule change in the WRC presented Toyota with a chance to demonstrate its innovation. Permission was granted to equip the base of the Toyota's widely marketed production car with a turbo-charge and four-wheel drive system, as well as modify the engine without restriction. The more compact body of the Corolla was chosen for

Hasegawa 1/24 Porsche 962C OMRON

Porsche has created countless competitors over the years. However, the 962C remains one of the brand's best designs over thirty years after its original release. The 962C competed in 1989's All Japan Sports Prototype Car Endurance Championship, where it took on Fuji Speedway's ten taut turns and impressive 0.9 mile (1.5 km) long straights. Let’s very briefly examine the evidence. Here is a car that won Le Mans six times on the trot, a feat managed

Hasegawa 1/35 Hitachi Astaco Neo

Hitachi developed the ASTACO (Advanced System with Twin Arm for Complex Operation) in 2005 to respond to diverse application requirements of heavy-duty machines. A special feature of the ASTACO is its ability not only to make complex actions, such as cutting an object while holding it, pulling an object while holding other things, and bending long objects, but also delicate actions such as holding soft, fragile objects. This feature allows the ASTACO to operate in

Built! Bandai 1/144 Millenium Falcon

I was finally able to call the Bandai 1/144 model kit done a week and a half ago. But being involved with other sponsored projects kept me from taking the pictures. Here you have it! The most sought after model kit from Bandai followed I'd say by the 1/72 Y-Wing Starfighter has been the heck of a ride over the last 2 months and a half. As you most likely know, the Bandai Millenium Falcon this

Revell Kylo Ren’s Shuttle MAX

The First Order’s top officers travel in Upsilon-class command shuttles that look like grim birds of prey. These ships’ massive wings are packed with defensive systems to protect their valuable passengers. The upper wings contain advanced sensor suites that scan for enemies, while the lower wings house efficient shield projectors and powerful jammers. Upon landing, the wings rise from flight mode and then retract, encasing the upper wings’ sensor arrays in thick armor. Revell MAX Kylo

Built 1/72 Academy F-4J Phantom II

So, here is my 1:72 Academy F-4J. I was intrigued by this kit, as I have built their 1:48 offering and wanted to see if the two scales were on the same par. The kit appears to be marketed toward a younger crowd with the snap-tite features, but I noticed that it could easily be touched up a bit to satisfy the more experienced modeler. I purchased some Eduard PE for the cockpit and seats.

Academy Kayak Robot

The Kayak Robot is an educational kit powered by a motor that creates a reciprocating rowing motion. This movement in turn drives the paddles to propel the boat. It can run in bath tub , fish tank or other container. Easy to assemble, it needs no glue. The Robot Kayak demonstrates the principles of mechanical link and joint mechanisms. And it’s fun. Academy Kayak Robot Model My good little friend Keivan actually built this model in the

Revell Brad Keselowski # 2 Ford Fusion

Sometimes controversial, but always competitive, Brad Keselowski is one of the leading stars in stock car racing. His racing achievements speak for themselves: 2010 Nationwide Champion and 2012 Sprint Cup Champion. He is one of a select few who have won races in all three of NASCAR's major racing categories. In 2010, Brad joined the famous Team Penske racing group. At the helm is Roger Penske, whose teams have won championships in most of the

Moebius Jonny Quest’s Dragonfly finished

Back in December we received this sample from Moebius Models and reviewed it here. Finally I decided to give it some TLC and put the Jonny Quest Dragonfly model kit together. The fuselage went together without a hitch. If you have this kit in your stash, know that there's very little sanding to be done with it. The wings are a one piece deal. Rather than using the display base provided by Moebius, I decided to

1/12 Kothoga Creature from Pegasus Models

The Kothoga is an ancient creature little known to the civilised world. Rare in the extreme, the Kothoga is only known by a few remote South American tribes. Although modern science has disproved these myths, the Kothoga is nonetheless a very real and deadly species. Deep within the remotest parts of Brazil, there exists a form of parasitic fungus which is known to grow only on one species of plant. The fungus is loaded with

1/35 MechatroWeGo Finished Model

A few weeks ago we posted here at MK Review the all new Mechatro We Go 1/35 scale model kits from Hasegawa. As a Japanese toys and Anime fan, I requested a sample of the kit and our friend Carol happily obliged asking in return that more than an in-box review, they'd like to see the kit assembled. I had no problem with that either, only that I had a small request as well. One
