happy halloween Greetings!
Fall arrives and it seems more often so does the rain! What better reason to stay inside, keep dry, stay warm and pull up a project that has long remained dormant. Sometimes there is a reason a project falls to the wayside. Sometimes the parts are unavailable, other instances it's due to the finishing products such as decals or even a troublesome part that won't remain attached.

We're working hard to get some of the old inventory reprinted for the upcoming modeling season. Keep checking back on the Microscale website to see if your decal set has been reprinted. If it is one that has remained out of stock for some time it might be due to a few factors on our end making it difficult to reprint. Don't hesitate to contact Chris Palomarez chris@microscale.com should you have any input or requests to our existing out of stock decal sheets.

Occasionally a kit build gets stalled due to a problematic glue joint, or possibly lacking a method to fix something. Microscale is offering a complete line of adhesives! Our Microweld has been reformulated offering a much better bond then ever before between Styrene joints. Coupled with the new MicroBond system and you have a pack that will be able to offer a solution to almost every occurrence that you will run into building kits or fixing existing models.

With these new offerings from Microscale, let us turn up some music to accentuate the sound of the rain and move along some of the long dormant projects that have hid the summer away.
