This is the kit of the Alpha Centauri UFO Short Range Saucer. It’s a fairly simple kit to build; it didn’t have many pieces to it.

I used Antique Silver “Rub& Buff” with a coat of Tamiya clear.

The Alien was painted with Testors Model Master Light Ghost Gray. Its eyes were painted Flat Black and then dabbed with Future floor wax. The bubble canopy was dipped in Future floor wax.

MK IXe Spitfire

by Jack Hollander

The markings and camouflage for this Tamiya 1/32 scale MK IXe Spitfire is for a Polish Squadron.  I used Miracle Mask for the painting the roundels and insignia.

It came as a solid perforated sheet. For the roundels, you lift up the middle circle, paint and replace. Then lift up the next – paint and replace until it’s finished.

Last October Hub Hobby’s old building on Broad St was demolished. Word of it being torn down spread like wildfire.

One of our customers, Jim Letten, was emailed by his friend Martin about the demolition of their childhood hang-out.

The subject line was: ROSEBUD

“Rosebud” was the dying word spoken by Orsen Welles in the movie Citizen Kane: a reference to his childhood sled – the symbol of memories of youthful innocence.

I’ve known Jim for at least 40 years and he has given us permission to publish his reply to his friends email.
