We were very surprised and pleased to have been presented this award by Mr. Paul Antonelli (The Character Shop) at the recent Boston Modelfest. We were also happy to share this award with Amazing Figure Modeler Magazine. Our thanks to you, the readers. For this award was based on magazine sales, requests, customer's comments and feedback from both The Character Shop and Gremlins in the Garage. It is very much appreciated.

A monstrous hello to issue #20. First I would like to apologize for this issue not turning out quite as we planned. Our main monster article did not materialize as we had hoped. So we had to put in a last minute replacement. We also made a last minute cover change. This issue's cover shows R & R Studio's unique Midnight Bride plaque. (You can read more about this piece in our "Cool New Stuff Section".)
When we needed someone to cover the third annual Mad Model Party we went to the man with the gargantuan personality, our own Mark Paskell. You can read his Captivating commentary in this issue's "California Connections". Followed by a photo review kindly supplied to us by show promoters, SideShow Inc.
You won't find John Tucky ("Xacto Facto") sitting on his accolades, (which could be painful). He was busy writing this issue's crushing article about Rodan and an unfortunate factory complex. Once again he'll be you step by step tour guide through this extensive diorama.
Wayne "The Dane" Hansen is not afraid of Death. In fact he bends it to his will. Well, to be more clear he takes Halcyon's Judge Death kit and repositions it more to his liking.
Jean Elliott had to break out those National Geographic's Serenqeti photo articles to help in painting Eerie Cast Models', hodge podge of animal parts, Conglomeron. (You won't find this one in a petting zoo.)
Steve "midnight" Mollett knows a thing or two about bondage. Reproducing scale manacles and shackles that is. We thought this was a great non-figure, but related, article to share. After all what would that dungeon scene be without realistic looking "irons" hanging from the wall.
Never let it be said that Rich Larson is a predictable kind of guy. Last issue he showed you some airbrush painting tips, this issue he shows you how an airbrush works. Heck anybody can teach vou in the normal way. Don't forget to check out Rich's kit reviews and our photo highlight of this past summer's Chiller Theatre show.
ONCE AGAIN WE POKE SOME FUN AT OURSELVES AND THE HOBBY! IF LIFE IS TOTALLY SERIOUS TO YOU THEN WE SUGGEST YOU SKIP THIS SECTION. EVERYTHING ON THESE LAMPOON PAGES ARE TO BE TAKEN AS INTENDED, AS A JOKE!! ENJOY!
