Project Completed: 1/72 MENG Fiat G.91R Light Fighter Bomber

New Project: 1/350 Tamiya I-400 JPN Submarine

After a member reviewed my recent posting of my Revell 1/144 German U-Boat model he asked if I could apply same modeling techniques to build the Tamiya 1/350 I-400 Submarine for him. Of coarse always wanting to accept a build request I replied [...]
