FIGURES IN 1:32 SCALE BY THE MODEL CELLAR

Available from the Model Cellar are these beautiful figures of airmen from WW1. They are very well detailed not only in their facial expressions but their clothing as well. These figures are definitely worth the expense and once painted would certainly compliment any WW1 diorama. Check their web site for other figures in other scales. http://www.modelcellar.com

The most scary thing about bi-planes, the rigging. Not as hard as you think, easy steps ahead.

Simple Eyelet Tool

Here is a set of hand tools which are perfect for adding that touch of realism to any diorama scene. Made and supplied by vectorcut.com they are beautifully cut and very well detailed. The process used is laser cut and relief engraved in .0145” laserboard resulting in very accurate and highly detailed miniatures. Beside the tool set is a nut/bolt and washer set also very highly detailed and beautifully cut. These are perfect for detailing engines, prop hubs, undercarriage and many more applications.


NEW
FROM VECTOR CUT

Just released are these two sets of very thin washer, my measurements make them at only 0.28mm thick. The washers come in four sizes, the first set has 2.3mm and 1.9mm washer, the second set has 1.75mm washers and 1.45mm washers. These washers are laser cut so have a very clean crisp edge. These washer will mate perfectly with the Vector Cut nuts to give a completely realistic appearance to your model.
