News & Stuff

July 24, 2014: Our 1:48 Bubble Ship from 2013's "OBLIVION" has been added to the Sci-Fi/2010s gallery. The kit is currently being offered to reservation holders and will go on general sales in the Virtual Museum Store next month. NEW FROM UNICRAFT! We have two new Luft '46 kits in from our friends at Unicraft: The Junkers EF.008 quad-engine bomber project and the Heinkel He.P.1079-01.02 jet fighter concept. Both are available now in limited numbers.

July 2, 2014: In the Visitor's Gallery, Scott Trusty shares photos of his recent Federation B-Class Waystation build. It lights up!

June 28, 2014: JUST RELEASED! The 1:2500 Federation G-Class Starbase from Masao Okazaki's "The Starfleet Museum." This 31-piece kit, created for us by Millenia Models International (MMI), was introduced at Wonderfest 2014 in May. It's an in-scale companion piece to our popular Federation B-Class Waystation, which is now back in the Virtual Museum Store. Also back in stock: The 1:72 SA-2 Samson from James Cameron's "Avatar" (2009).

June 25, 2014: NEW FROM UNICRAFT! We have two new kits from Unicraft for your modeling enjoyment: The Supermarine TOR.4040 VTOL fighter concept from 1944, and Heinkel's He.P.1073.01-02 forward-swept wing twin-jet fighter concept, also from 1944. Both kits are in 1:72 and retail for $40.00 each.

S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier Update: First, the Good News: We have shipped all 1/1400 S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier kits to reservation holders who completed their orders. Now, the Bad News: This completely exhausted our supply of Helicarrier kits. We have more kits on order, but our caster, Mana Studios, is waaayyy backed up with other projects. So the Helicarrier probably won't reach the Virtual Museum Store until late July.

In the meantime, we're preparing to release our 1:48 OBLIVION Bubble Ship kit to reservation holders, probably just after July 4. There's still time to get on the waiting list! Just email us at

PROMETHEUS UPDATE: We keep getting asked about when our 1:500 Prometheus kit will be released. Yes, the kit is still in production, No, we probably won't see it until the fall. We're still cleaning up the printed parts, plus we had to reprint some others to get this "just right." In the meantime, we have LOTS of other kits in the queue.

"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 60-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...
