Does Box Art really sell kits? This seems to be one of those logical things we all believe. In my personal experience, I have only bought one kit because of the box art and that was a long time ago. I am much more likely to buy a kit based on the contents of the […]Box Art – An Artist’s Perspective

Model Airplane Maker… now on YouTube
I have been a ‘consumer’ of scale model related videos on YouTube for some years now. Some are great and some need work but all required some effort to get finished and published to the masses.

F4F-4 Grumman Wildcat
Revisiting the original My Forgotten Hobby
This is Post 499.
I started writing this blog on December 6, 2013.

Reading some of Hubert’s posts I realize how much I enjoy what other modelers are building, so much so I tend to forget starting building again. I know I will a little later on, but for now I enjoy what I see not only on Hubert’s blog, but also on Dave’s Plane Dave and Jeff’s Inch High Guy.
