HobbyZone has released the OM15 Multimedia Module which can sit atop your storage modules or on its own on your bench top. It will handle your iPad (shown here) or even an android telephone, is adjustable in width, depth, and tilt. In stock now!

This is the OM08b Paper Towel Holder snapped (with magnets) to the end of my storage modules. Unlike the original OM08, this holder will work with US paper towel rolls (this is a new roll of Bounty in the holder), and is held in place with a top-loading wood dowel. The OM08b can also hold corner modules above or below, this photo shows an OM12 atop the OM08b with the dowel still accessible.

We've received our first shipment of Yahu instrument panels including subjects in 1/24 and 1/32 scale, all will be appearing on the store in the coming days. We're also receiving Airscale instruments and bezels (including 1/32 scale) in the next week. Finally, the resupply of 1/48 Su-35S Super Flanker decals will be arriving from Begemot by the end of the week along with 1/32 post-2010 Russian Air Force stars and markings.

When will you have the paper towel module?

I've already submitted my comments on the prototype, so it could be released in the next few weeks or so. That is up to the factory at this point.

But - I apologise -  the "Multimedia Module" is laughable.

Perhaps, but you've got to give the Poles credit for coming up with solutions that you didn't even know were problems.

I can see where it might come in handy considering that many manufacturers in the aftermarket realm are going to digital-only instructions.

The LSP thread covering the Kitty Hawk 1/32 F-5E was helpful in my build of the kit and now I can have my iPad viewable to access other useful threads for future builds.

A lot of it is going that way, IE KLP Publishing and the excellent build guide sets Kev puts out. That and other kits including only on-line or disks, seems to cut down over all paper instruction that come with some kits.

Interesting iPad holder.  I use one designed for kitchen use.  Pretty simple and I do not need the adjustment feature.

Indeed. I have a strange tripod designed for tablets/iPads which worked fine as long as I didn't try to slide it out of the way. If it works, don't mess with it.
