Today in History

9/02 September's free, downloadable wallpaper is based on Adam Courville's 1/350 USS Enterprise with Polar's lighting kit.

In Store news, we've got piles of new stuff from Japan and points closer, plus restocks as well.

08/20Terry Miesle is back with a look at building Crusher Joe's Minerva from the Hasegawa kit.

08/10Yes, it's been a while - but we have 8 new Readers' Gallery entries posted today.

08/01I'm on time for once - yay, me! August's free, downloadable wallpaper is based on Mike Walston's Imperial battlecruiser INSS Macarthur from The Mote in God's Eye, the classic novel by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle.

Plenty of new stuff and restocks over in the Store as well.

7/06My apologies - it takes me forever to post things and then I forget to update this page. July's free, downloadable wallpaper is based on Chang Yang's multiple award-winning Wonderfest 2021 entry 1/144 Hammerhead from Star Wars: Rogue One.

Also, I compiled a video of the contest room at Wonderfest - so many amazing models!. You can view it here: Starship Modeler Presents: The Wonderfest 2021 Contest Room.

We're off to Wonderfest! Stay tuned to the facebook page and the twitter for updates!

May's free, downloadable wallpaper: 1/350 Kronos 1 (24th Century version) based on Mike Walston's 1st place entry in our Trek-Wars Contest.

Plenty of new stuff and restocks over in the Store as well.

April's free, downloadable wallpaper is based on Terry Miesle's recently-completed 1/400 Crusher Joe Minerva.

03/15 So, I've not really kept on top of updating this page - or the home page - in a while. Sorry. Here's what's been happening - in no particular order:

March's free, downloadable wallpaper showcases Scott 'Trekmanscott' Scariot's 1/1400 long range explorer USS Stanwix, NCC-51910, based on the AMT Enterprise-C kit. Scott went nuts with the lighting and the drilling out all those windows - and then he masked and painted that scheme. (I planned to do that back when the kit came out, even installed flexible CCFL lighting and zapped myself in the process. Then I figured out that was the *easy* part and went back to 1/48 scale airplanes. My hat's off to Scott). As ever, Robb Merrill's digital skills replaced the kraft paper background with something much more befitting.

The Trek-wars contest ended, there was voting - and the results are here. I gotta say - that was a lot of entries and a lotta, lotta votes cast. Huzzas and kudos to all who entered - that was some phenomenal work there. Mementos of this are in the works, so entrants and winners alike, stand by.

We have some new content - and I've been learning some mad video skillz (did I say that right? Or is that 'so 1996', as the child says whilst giving the ol' eyeroll?) Anyway - Terry Miesle has a video tutorial on using inks and clear acrylic gloss paint to nefarious ..... I mean, 'good' effect here.

Over towards the Store - oh, there's too much to go into. New walkers, old walkers, new space fighters, old space battleagons, new kits of old experiments, flights of fancy .... well: Lots. And, as ever, a steady stream of restocks of old favorites.

I am totally gonna (try to) get better at the updates - but first, Alabama local taxes are due. Yeah - I live in Illinois. Long story - and it involves taxes, so ask me at Wonderfest (if I've been able to get the COVID vaccine by then).

September 26

1956 Linda Hamilton, actress, born (Terminator I/II).
