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

1/200 Bismarck by Terry Cornell

Back in September 2014, a web friend knocked on our doors asking if we wanted to feature his upcoming build of the 1/200 Bismarck from Trumpeter Models. Who could say no to his proposal? We have seen plenty of aircraft, armor and car builds but this is a sight we don't get to see often. The build log started back in September, 2014 and today Wednesday April 1st, 2015 we call this build DONE! It has

Built Moebius Cylon Raider Model

Frak! Just when I was having the most fun with this build, it came to an end. Among other projects we are simultaneously working on, this build took me a sectar to complete. It has been a long sectar filled with new building and painting techniques, styrene and resin surgery and troubleshooting. As you probably know by now, this is a low parts count model kit (but detail was not sacrificed.) Having said that, the

Eduard’s Jug over Germany P-47

I’ve always been drawn to the P-47…I think the Thunderbolt represents to me one of the magnificent “muscle” planes of WWII. I’ve built a couple of “Jugs”, but mostly the 1:32 Hasegawa kit. So, I was thrilled when I received the 1:48 Eduard “Jugs over Germany” kit (#1179) as part of a Secret Santa exchange this past Christmas. Eduard repackaged the Academy sprues and added a lot of goodies that included PE, masks, Brassin, and

Moebius Mars Attacks! Martian Warrior

I was in love with this kit since before it came out... way before it came out! So when my sister got it for me for my birthday this year I was ready to scrap everything on my workbench (I didn't) and get right to this one. I know you guys know that feeling, you got a closet full of unopen beauties that you've been stockpiling every time one comes down in price finally, but then

Trumpeter 1/200 Bismark (WIP)

With over 1,700 parts here is a sight we don't see everyday. The famed Kriegsmarine battleship and the lead ship in his class from Trumpeter Models in a colossal 1/200 scale is kindly presented here as a work in progress project by reader Terry Cornell. Terry has been very kind to share this build with all of us interested in the legendary Battleship. I suggest those interested in this project to sign up to

Tamiya A6M5c Type 52 Zero Fighter ZEKE

In April 1939, shortly after the first Japanese Zero began test trials, modification drawings were already taking place on the zero in the Mitsubishi design room, to keep pace with the anticipated long air war in the Pacific. After the initial superiority of the Zero over allied aircraft began to wane, due to new U.S. types being introduced, Mitsubishi was hard pressed to maintain a superiority. The introduction of the Grumman F6F and Chance Vought

Hiding in the Ruins

Greetings once again, I have always wanted to build a city block diorama, after all, where can the soldiers hide ? Streets filled with rubble and trash, and most of all no place to run to when the enemy comes to town.  Building such a diorama was fairly straight forward and by using the simplest products cost saving. The first step is planning ahead and as I like to think of myself in such a place trying
