Stalingrad Revisited

In Headlines three years ago, nearly to the week, I posted this Jeff Shiu Miniatures 120mm resin figure of a German Grenadier at Stalingrad; I was never happy with the painting. Since then, my figure painting skills have improved somewhat, […]

Academy F4U-1A Corsair “Skipper Riley” 1:72
