The Golden Sprue Awards

I don’t usually make this sort of post, but today is an exception.

Warren Starrett has managed to get an astonishing amount of industry interest in a new endeavour he’s pioneering: The Golden Sprue awards. As I understand it, this is a community-led way of nominating and voting for what we think is the best product in various modelling categories: kits, paints and aftermarket. Nominations are now open for 2020 until 25th September and voting will commence from 3rd October. The results will be announced in mid-November.

It’s a bit of fun, there are some great prizes available, and the more people participate, the more meaningful the results will be. All the the information is available here:

Hasegawa 1/48 Douglas TA-4J Skyhawk


I’m ploughing through the A-4s, thanks to coronavirus and more modelling time, and so here is the third: Hasegawa’s 1/48 TA-4J pretty much straight from the box and in the kit decals. Read about it here.
