Not bad, just rusty

Review: Ultimation Sander

It’s no secret that I’m working on some O-scale builds (which, for the record, doesn’t mean I am switching scales. HO is still my bread and butter). In working with a larger scale, though, one thing becomes even more important than ever… making things perfect. There’s no hiding in a scale like 1/48 like you […]

Review: Stories in Miniature (book)

I was fortunate to stumble across the IndieGoGo page to get this book off the ground but unfortunate in that I was a year too late. Luckily, The Cursed Monkeys deemed it worthwhile to do one more run of the book. So I jumped at the chance. Upon first impressions the book has been made […]

What separates this glue from the rest then? (no pun intended) Well, for me, it’s the brush. You don’t see many superglues with one – and you […]

Earlier this week I discovered a set of tools that have changed the way I approach and tackle any given model. Yes, they have become that important. Ever had that issue where you’ve filed something and been satisfied, yet when you prime it reveals a still rough surface? Well, it’s happened to me. And I’ve found […]

Review: Schellert Tool

So, when I was searching some forums late at night I came across a post where someone had fashioned their own sculpting tool. The handle and the tool itself had been hand made. I wanted one. The article credited the design to a guy named Gene VanHorne. I googled the name but didn’t come up […]
