Re: I've released an officially licensed model SEGA Mega Drive...

Ha! That's actually been part of the problem! It's been getting a great response when people see it in real life as they can appreciate the scale and detail but online it's a bit more difficult to convey.

I've released an officially licensed model SEGA Mega Drive...

Thought you all might be interested in what I’ve been working on for 18 months. I managed to secure an official license and release the first in a collection of games console and home computer miniatures. This first one is the SEGA Mega Drive with more to follow if it proves popular enough. It’s 1:2...

Re: CRT 14" TV recommendations. Prices rising!

Strangely, I just posted out to my friends on Facebook and someone has a 14" Sony in storage. They accepted £20 which I don't think is too bad. Cheapest price on eBay for the same model is £50 with most being over a £100 (sold listings).

Best way of removing fine scratches and scuffs from cases

Anyone know what the best way of making a case look like brand new is? Obviously you can retrobright it to get rid of yellowing and WD40 will polish up the case nicely but I'm look for a way of removing the really fine scratches that show the consoles age? I've heard that using a cream cleaner like ...
