Coming soon from (click on the image to go to the website):



"Captain America: The First Avenger" Hydra Parasite...in 1/48!  Woohoo!!!




Will definitely be getting one of these!  I am tempted to do it as a civilian aircraft though.

I expect that the Hydra is mastered by the gent on the Ma.K site who has already scratch-built a few similar craft.  His work is top notch if quite expensive.

Many new kits added to the FP future release calender here. I want the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier in both 1/72 for me and 1/48 for Greg.
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I might have to break down and cough up whatever they might want for the 1/144 Gunstar kit.

I'd love to own their X-15D ($75) and the S.H.I.E.L.D. Quinjet.

I may have to get the Gunstar -- with a choice of 72nd, 100th & 144th kits at the same price, I'll have to study the contents & availability options.

I still say the Soviet Moon lander looks a lot like something from MaK/SF3D.

The XRV would look good atop a Titan III, either single-stack or triple-stack with solid-rocket boosters.

That's a good question, the "original" with James Arness as the alien "monster" or the remake by John Carpenter that was far closer to the original source material, John W. Campbell's classic "Who Goes There?" (there's some interesting personal history in the inspiration for Campbell's story).
