The Museum has recently completed a beautiful Indoor 35 seat Theatre for our guests to enjoy WWII, Korea, Vietnam And IRAQ/Afghanistan Veterans speaking sessions and Movies.

      They are. What was said was Bandai is doing the new stuff and they have the Star Wars license for Japan. Revell has license for Euorpe and they are suppose to be adding three new models from the new movie coming out this year.

      Carlos Salazar printed me some red slogan decals to use for this project, unfortunately when applied to the green paint they did not stay bold and red….. So, on to plan 2. During a meeting at IPMS Tijuana, Carlos showed us a technique for winter cammo. It was very easy, he just sprayed some Tamiya Flat White over the basecoat of his model, waited till it set

      I thought Bandai was doing a line of 1/48th Star Wars stuff along with larger, 1/12?, Stormtrooper and darth vader figures.

      So I heard Revell Gremany just bought Fine Molds Star Wars molds and will be relaseing them under a snap tite series. I guess they are doing the 1/48 X-Wing and TIE fighter. It was also said they may be releasing the 1/72 Falcon.

      Here is my updated work space. I took Wowmonkey’s suggestion and got three new airbrushes. One for each type of paint I use. I added some peg board and used a magnetic strip to hold my tools.
