Revell Star Wars Rogue One Build and Play At-Act Walker
Revell Star Wars Rogue One Build and Play At-Act Walker

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice little kit., 7 Dec. 2016
Very easy to put together. Pieces are well detailed and once put together forms an accurate representation of the AT ACT. Model building experience isn't required as the pieces snap together and don't need removing from a sprue although care may be required to put the articulated joints together on the thin legs. This kit is ideal for the novice builder or avid Star Wars collector who wants to add this vehicle to their collection. An expert modeller may consider this kit worthwhile too as the potential for upgrading and painting is quite extensive. Well worth the £16 spent!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Figurine, 11 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another decent offering from Black Series. The Death Trooper is well represented with good detailing throughout and an accurate colour scheme. Although the Trooper does appear a bit tall and gangly it doesn't detract from it's overall look and is well worth adding to anyone's collection and it's a reasonable price too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Series Gem, 11 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of late some Black Series figurines have, in my opinion, looked and felt a bit slapdash with adequate but not accurate paint jobs and loose, wonky limbs. This one has pushed B.S figures back to the top of their game with robust build quality, symmetrical and straight limbs and a good reproduction of the Scarif Trooper's armour and colour scheme. A good figurine at a decent price. Grab it while you can Star Wars fans...!

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Read, 25 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although fantastical in its scope I actually quite enjoyed reading this, the 4th instalment of the Snow collection. It ticked most of the boxes for a zombie themed novel and part of me thinks it may have been better thus, as opposed to the endgame of the Snow series. Pretty riveting stuff nonetheless.....!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great model!, 3 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Robust build quality, nicely detailed, good decals-a worthy addition to anyone's model collection. As is often the case the internal cockpit detailing is a bit sparse but this doesn't detract from the overall appeal of this model. Worth buying if you like Storches, Luftwaffe aircraft or aircraft in general!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Read, 16 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Not Alone (Kindle Edition)
A very believable account of how we would react as a species should evidence of alien life come to light. The story of a seemingly normal (maybe suffering from Asperger's Syndrome?) young man and his journey to reveal the truth of alien contact on earth was compulsive and highly readable and relies on good narrative and twists and turns in the plot to deliver a great read. Those expecting flying saucers and aliens blasting humans with laser guns will be disappointed but please read this book anyway, it's worth it....!

Nicely sized card, well made, sturdy with an appropriate message written inside. A well rendered mouse motif on the front complements an ideal birthday card.


STAR TREK Undiscovered Country Excelsior Ship
STAR TREK Undiscovered Country Excelsior Ship

5.0 out of 5 stars A great model, 12 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Excelsior is one of my favourite Star Trek starships and at the price this one was offered at I couldn't refuse...! Although I would have happily bought this model without the lights and sounds; the quality of the Captain Sulu voice recordings are pretty good and the lit up areas of the ship certainly add something to the overall look of the model.
The Excelsior model itself is quite large (around the size of the plastic kit version) and is very well detailed and painted. The button to activate the lights and sounds is cleverly disguised as the bridge module. Unlike some reviewers, I had no problems with activating the features once the button was pressed and had no need to press the underside of the saucer section as well. If I had to pick one "fault" it would be the large, unwieldy stand.
For any Trekker who wants to expand their collection or (like me) lacks the painting skills to build a kit version of the Excelsior- look no further than this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy but engaging read, 12 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A highly detailed account of the history, development and service life of the X15. This book is certainly not for the novice aviation enthusiast with its use of terminology and (to my unintelligent brain) tabular information and equations covering all aspects of the X15 from fuel to flight regimes. That being said the parts I did understand were interesting to read and photo content was good. Although the writer states that the book was written from a technical standpoint and contained no pilot reminiscences I feel that its readability would have been enhanced with an anecdote or two added.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun but challenging!, 26 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've wanted a Phantom Mustang for years and when Amazon offered one at a knock down price I couldn't say no...
I thought to build straight from the box as my painting skills are pretty basic and I wanted to show the internal parts anyway. I changed my mind and decided to paint some sections (which has come out surprisingly well)
The parts are well detailed although not on a par with many modern kits and come away from the sprue easily. Paint is easily applied. The parts glue together well but one oddity I noted was that some parts don't fully dry when joined together and leave the plastic looking and feeling like toffee. This peculiarity destroyed the working undercarriage mechanism and I had to strip it out and not bother with it. Good job I didn't pay the full price for the model then...
The electrics are pretty easy to put together but it helps if you're not ham fisted or clumsy (like me) All in all this is a fun and challenging build, recommended for modellers with good skills. After market decals are available in the appropriate scale, the ones supplied with this kit sufficed however. Make sure each decal is firmly set on the plastic or it may bubble up and come away, like a couple of mine did...
A recommended buy!
