Today in History

08/13 Thursday the Thirteenth seems like a good day to launch our 24th Online Model Contest - especially since the IRL versions are being cancelled right and left.

08/03 August's free, downloadable wallpaper is a based on Danny Attree's build of the 1/72 Metal Gear Rex kit from Kotobukiya.

07/03 July's free, downloadable wallpaper is a based on Keith Karn Sr's build of the 1/72 (Interstellar) Ranger kit from Moebius.

Happy Independence Day to my countrymen - stay safe this weekend and, for everybody's sake, #wearthedamnmask!

06/30 I think I finally have the new format down. You tell me - take a look at Scott Scariot's feature on how he lighted and built the AMT/ERTL Deep Space 9 kit. It's a saga, really - filled with ups and downs, heartache and having to start over - a project only a madman would take on. (Well, OK, that's hyperbole. Scott's pretty level-headed.... just a glutton for punishment).

06/22 It is with great sadness that I learned this morning of the passing of my friend and mentor, Mark Yungblut. I first met Mark at Wonderfest ... so long ago I don't remember which year that was. 200? 2001? '99? At least 20 years ago, anyway. Mark was a lot of things, but first and foremost - a teacher. Nothing better exemplifies this than the aricle he wrote for us back in 2002 (in the wild and wooly early days after newsgroups but before Reddit, when folks who scratchbuilt models attempted to lord it over mere "kit assemblers" like they were practitioners of some esoteric art Up with that Mark would not put).

Also: Fuck. Cancer.

See ya on the flip side, old man.

06/18 There are 6 new Readers' Gallery entries posted tonight. Also, there's a bunch of new stuff and retocks in the Store this week. Have a look!

06/04 Got bogged down on new Gallery entries and forgot to post the wallpaper. It's up now - Romulan Warbirds, based on Paul Birza's build of the 1:3200 from Round 2/Polar Lights (2019 reissue). More new stuff and resocks in the Store, too. I should have another Gallery update this weekend.

05/24 I've been working on a new format for the Reader's Gallery, one that works equally well on a phone as on a desktop. There are 5 new entries posted tonight. Also, there's a bunch of new Space:1999 goodies (and more) in the Store. Have a look!

05/04 Somewhere on nameless observation point, Soviet soldiers celebrate news of V-E Day in Rob Norton's vignette featured in May's free, downloadable wallpaper. Took me longer than I thought it would, but that page should now workfine on all platforms, including a phone.

04/03 April's free, downloadable wallpaper is another something different - based on Jay Smith's scratchbuilt Police Viperfrom the old computer game, Elite.

September 26
