News & Stuff

April 13, 2015: Good news and bad news. First, the good news: The long-awaited SHIELD Helicarrier and SPECTRE Bird One decals finally arrived today. The quality of the print-screening by Canuck Models is excellent. And now the bad news: The SHIELD decals are too big -- just slightly, but enough so they won't properly fit the angled flight decks -- so I have to have them reprinted. Which means additional delay. But the SPECTRE Bird One decals are perfect, so I'm pleased to announce that the 1:72 kit is now BACK IN STOCK.

April 7, 2016: BIG RESTOCK! Once again available in the Virtual Museum Store:

     - 1:48 Soviet LK Moon Lander

     - 1:72 XRV from "Marooned" (1969)

     - 1:72 FA-37 Talon from "Stealth" (2005)

For those of you who have been waiting for LK decals, they're going in the mail today and tomorrow. Thanks so much for your patience!

"Fantastic Plastic" is a scale modeling site that celebrates the weird, the wonderful, the odd, the radical, the exotic and the just plane cool aircraft and spacecraft model kits produced in styrene (and resin) over the last 70-plus years.  From bizarre World War II-era "Luft '46" project planes to the latest science fiction concepts, here is a chronicle of Man's highest aspirations as expressed through his flying machines, both real and imagined.

The Fantastic Plastic "Virtual Museum of Flying Wonders" is divided into seven "galleries," each dedicated to a particular area of interest.  These are:

Whether your interest is "Luft '46," the American Space Program, X-planes, radical aircraft prototypes, "paper projects," Star Trek, Star Wars, hovercraft or UFOs, you are sure to find something here to ignite your passion -- and trigger wonderful memories.

And while you're here, please be sure to visit the Fantastic Plastic "Virtual Museum Store," where you'll find our exclusive line of unique aircraft and spacecraft model kits for sale.

Thanks for visiting.  Return often.   And...
