Revell 1/144 scale Lockheed F-19 Stealth Fighter

In 1986, as speculation about Lockheed’s Northrop built what it called the YF-17 technology demonstrator to compete with General Dynamics’ YF-16 in the lightweight fighter program. When the F-16 won, the U.S. Navy hired Northrop to base the Navy’s next fighter on the -17, with the result designated F-18.) Testors assumed that in order to deflect radar waves, the F-19 would be sleek and streamlined and would somewhat resemble Lockheed’s other-worldly SR-71. Testors models stuck a

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

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.

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.
