Here it is….. It’s Gigantic, it’s Limited, it’s due Soon….(Still soon……..)
A NEW KIT! USAAF B-17G 1:32 Plastic Kit. ETA TBA.
Gotta get started with more news….
VALLEJO PAINTS…. Bridgetowne expects the Complete Model Color set in this week!! endorsed by the great Bill Chilstrom…
B17 G bomber…the 1/32 scale gorgeous monster….with luck, we have an allotment heading our way…this one will be a Hot Potatoe!!!
We look forward to our shipment from Micro-Mark soon, and Bridgetowne has begun to carry the the bi-monthly SCALE MODEL ADDICT mag,
There are only four of each left as of this writing. SMA claim less than 10% of their mag is ads, and the color and quality is very good!
We WILL have our Saturday ship class noonish . Be there with YOUR ship and the usual good attitude.
Bridgetowne is also expecting the new Sherman Tank book this week…
We have added extra books as we think this book will exceed the expectations , and will be a sellout…call Mark to reserve a copy today.
Other news… I have been mulling over the thought of running another wooden ship class…and have for the past several weeks been pondering who I want to connect with…We have a very nice ship class with the Niagara, and even though I do not wish to be overloaded…I personally LIKE doing these classes. I do not know of any like it in the US… but as I’ve been building wooden ship models for over twenty years, I feel that there are lots of people out there in the greater Portland area who would have fun doing a great ship kit at a good price, and in a scale that would make it easy on the eyes and hands, to offer a great chance of success…a tall order, but one I have a good answer for! Stay tuned to this blog, and when you come in the shop tell one of our people you have an interest in the upcoming wood-ship class…and we will start a sign up sheet…Here is my target audience… A. Women…
B. modellers who have always wanted to accomplish a wooden goodie, and C. Those who already got the Niagara…I promise you, We will exceed expectations, as this wooden model will be FUN, and EASY to build, but it’ll be GORGEOUS, and very reasonably priced….a hint….I’ve already started a build to confirm the above statements are true…!!! We will limit the class to a max of 20…( twenty ) …We start early this fall….Ciao!! WmRD
