MUSIC TO MODEL TO

Do you listen to music while modeling?
We have already put some suggestions in with recent kits - such as the Covered Wagon and the Roman Chariot.
And here are a couple more from musician and fellow modeler, Dean Milano

Dean Milano

First - one that has unfortunately been very appropriate over the last couple of years... The Crazy Covid Blues

or how about... Life is Like a Plastic Model Kit ... to remind you of The Good Old Days

We try to celebrate the actual anniversary day of the launch of the world's first
'Man in Space' in 1961 - 12th April, though 2020 has been somewhat impractical
But in 2018 GLENCOE MODELS co-sponsors YURI'S NIGHT

The previous year there was over 200 guests!

Covered Wagon

One of the new horse-drawn kits to be released very soon from GLENCOE MODELS
is the Covered Wagon, otherwise known as the Prairie Schooner


There are many possibilities for dioramas, but here are a couple of alternative ideas...

This is the "World's Largest Covered Wagon" and can be found in Milford, Nebraska, just off the I-80

Now abandoned, it used be more complete -
it even had wheels!

Or how about this 'futuristic version' as featured in :

Frank Reade, Jr, and his Electric Prairie Schooner

October 4th was the start of World Space Week - that runs until 10th

World Space Week commemorates the start of the Space Age -
the launch of Sputnik 1 on October 4th, 1957

Sputnik 1

How have YOU been celebrating it?

How about building one of Glencoe's 'space' models?

On April 13th, almost to the day (12th) of the launch of the world's first 'Man in Space' in 1961 - and in 1981 the launch of the first Space Shuttle,
GLENCOE MODELS co-sponsored YURI'S NIGHT

It was a great success with over 200 guests, so there are plans to hold the event annularly.
Keep watching!
