New Tabletop Game: Monsterpocalypse

Privateer Press Monsterpocalypse Scotland Dundee Broughty Ferry Space Craft Model Shop

In a dystopia where extraterrestrial beings have zeroed in to destroy and plunder Earth of its vast resources, a group of protectors (made up of giant robots, scientifically engineered ninjas, and Terrasaurs coming out of extinction) are stepping in to save mankind from brutal annihilation.

Now you’ve got to ask yourself; are you a protector or a destroyer?

Construction of Microace Five-Story Pagoda

Recently we worked on the Five-Story Pagoda from Microace. We don’t sell any Microace kits in the shop (sorry to disappoint), but it so nice that we had to show it off here.

This 1/250 kit consists of all you need to make your own mini Japanese garden. It comes with plastic sprues for the garden structures and seeds to grow the plants in the garden. In our built we decided against planting the seeds because keeping things alive, in general, isn’t one of our forte.

1) Included in the kit are: a base to hold the scenery, a pagoda, a bridge, the entrance and surrounding walls, and seeds.

2) We completed the main model as per the instructions. Instead of planting seeds in the area under bridge we decided to model a river.

3) To start off, we covered the river base with texture paint.

4) Next, we painted over the texture paint to create a realistic riverbed.

5) The riverbed was sealed with a layer of varnish then rocks and grass were added to the riverbank.

Construction of Meng World War Toons King Tiger

Space Craft Dundee World War Toons King Tiger

Our latest build is the King Tiger from Meng World War Toons series – welcome to the world of cartoon tanks!

1) Included in the kit are the sprues, rubber tracks, and a small sheet of decal – which is a nice change from the Airbus A350.

2) This is a snap kit, the parts fitted nicely together but glue might handy for smaller parts.

3) The sprues come in grey, but we decided to prime it with a matt grey coat for a more realistic look. The finer details are picked out by hand.

4) In the final stage, decals are added. All the areas were nice and flat – no dramas here.

This is simple and straight forward kit, which can be built in an hour. The tank feels very sturdy, despite almost no glue was used.
