  • Tonight I take a first look at a set of third generation test shots of Revell's forthcoming 1/32 scale Heinkel He 219 A. A description of the contents is accompanied by 63 images of the kit's plastic parts and decals. I have also included a couple of photos of my kit in progress.

  • Jon Bryon presents a new Feature Article on his Airfix 1/48 scale Seafire FR.46. 35 images of the completed model accompany the detailed text.

  • Michael Szapowalow from AirConnection has advised that he will be printing corrected national markings as an Errata for the incorrectly proportioned markings provided in the 1/32 scale Hussar "P-51D Over the Pacific" decal sets, reviewed last week on HyperScale by Rodger Kelly. Stay tuned for more details of availability.

  • Squadron has a brand new website with new features and functionality. The search function is a bit different to the old site, but you can still search multiple criteria by typing, for example, the scale and the subject you are looking for in the text box (e.g. 1/72 hellcat).

  • One of Squadron's new features is Squadron TV, which currently features four videos. One of them is an interview with me while I was at Squadron;s head office in June.

  • Brad Fallen reviews Trumpeter's 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Me 509, including images of the kit's plastic parts, decals and box top.

  • Mark Davies examines Kopro's 1/72 scale Mi-2 Hoplite decals. Images of the cover, the instructions and the decals themseves are included,

  • Its Emil day! I review Eduard's 1/48 scale Bf 109 E Royal Class, which includes two full kits of any combination of the Messerschmitt Bf 109 E-1 to E-7 (including Trop and Jabo versions), additional resin and photo-etched parts, a 1/4 scale Bf 109 E instrument panel and a brushed stainless steel mug. Images of all the new kit parts, the decals, instrument panel and the mug are included. I have also added a description of the recent Eduard Bf 109 E-4 ProfiPACK, which shares the plastic and many of the photo-etched parts with the Royal Class kit.

  • I also review Eduard's BRASSIN 1/48 scale DB601A/N engine and MG 17 Mount set for Eduard's Emil family. Images of the resin and photo-etched parts are included.

We have received details of the forthcoming Memorial Service from Dr Charles Metz's from Molly Metz and Becky Metz Mavon:

"Thank you so much for your kind emails, thoughtful texts, heartfelt cards, beautiful flowers, touching posts, warm hugs, loving thoughts and so much more. We appreciate knowing how our dad touched your lives -- we feel your love and know that this loss is not ours alone. It is clear that, even to the last minute, dad lived with grace and dignity and love in his heart.

Please help us remember, celebrate and honor Charles Metz and his life well lived:

Memorial Service
Monday, August 27th at 11:00 a.m.
Rockefeller Chapel at the University of Chicago
Reception to follow."

Here is a link to a Eulogy to Charlie that appeared this week in the Chicago Tribune.

  • I am terribly sad to report that Dr. Charles Metz passed away today. Charlie was a regular visitor and an essential participant in HyperScale's Forums from almost day one. He was erudite and enthusiastic, with a broad range of interests and an encyclopaedic library. Charlie brought the disciplines and talent from his lifetime career in academia to this hobby, much to the benefit of many HyperScale visitors over the years. He was generous, lightning fast and reliable with any requests for information. I will treasure my memories of this true gentleman, and I wish to convey my deepest sympathy to Dr. Metz's family and many friends. Charlie, the world was a better place wherever you trod, and your footsteps will linger long after you have moved on. You will be sorely missed.

I had a great time at the Squadron EagleQuest XXI show at the Embassy Suites Hotel near Dallas Fort Worth Airport over the last few days. Thanks to Mike McMahon, the team from Squadron, and to the EagleQuest comittee for their welcome and hosplitality. I will be posting a report on the show plus a Gallery of photos upon my return.

I have arrived in Texas ahead of Squadron EagleQuest XXI from Thursday 21 June to Saturday 23 June at the Embassy Suites DFW Airport Outdoor World Hotel. While I am there I will be presenting a few sessions, including a HyperScale Q&A. More information is offered on the registration form, available by following this link. I'll look forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new modellers.

I am just back in Sydney after a 30+ hour return trip from Canada. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to everyone from IPMS Edmonton for their fantastic hospitality at the 17th Western Canadian Regional Model Contest and during the rest of my stay. You'll be reading more about this in the coming days and weeks.

It looks like the cutover to the new server is complete, so it will be back to regular updates:

3 June, 2012

  • If you can see this message, then you are viewing HyperScale on the new server. It may take a few days for the transfer to be complete worldwide.

2 June, 2012

  • HyperScale, Missing-Lynx and all of their associated websites are about to move to a new server. All content has already been copied to the new server, and we will be transferring the domain names in the coming days. For the period of the transfer - anywhere from a couple of days to the end of the week - I will not be posting new updates in order to keep the content the same on both the new and old servers. Please note that this move should not result in any change to functionality to either the main site or the Forums.
