Flying the KLP Flag at Telford!

Scale ModelWorld, held in Telford (UK) every year, is one of the world’s largest model shows, with visitors attending from all over the world, and large contest, vendor, and club sections. As it happens, the 2019 show is happening this coming weekend, November 9 & 10. For many of us who live outside the UK, it’s on our Bucket List of modelling events to attend in our lifeftime. And while I wish I could announce that I will be attending this year, thanks to a collaboration with Large Scale Planes and IPMS(UK) 32SIG, KLP Publishing will at least have a small token presence on the LSP/32SIG table.

Be sure to stop by and see the guys and say hello! Thanks to Dave Langmead for his assistance in bringing this together.

v1.1 of “Building the Revell P-51D” Released

Due to an oversight on my part (mea culpa!), I’ve had to make a small amendment to our newly-launched book, Building the Revell P-51D-5NA in 1/32 Scale. All new purchasers will obviously get the new version, but if you’ve already purchased the book, you can log in to your account and download it from your purchase history.

Before anyone panics, however, be assured that the amendment does not affect the book’s content, and in fact consists of a copyright attribution for Juanita Franzi’s artwork that I forgot to include in the launch version. My apologies to Juanita for this oversight! Thanks to the nature of digital publishing, this becomes a very easy mistake to fix.

Many thanks to everyone who has purchased the book so far!

SPAM!

Sadly, I’ve had to turn off commenting on some older posts due to a deluge of comment spam, and I may have to disable it for more posts yet. These spammy scumbags certainly are persistent!

I’ll try to leave commenting open for all new posts, and deal with the spam as it comes in. All comments are moderated, so the junk ones never see the public light of day, thankfully; but they’re still a royal pain to deal with!

Thanks everyone for your understanding.
