I live in central Scotland & have been modelling for over thirty years, although in recent years have focussed on figure painting. Returned to kit-building this year.

Bad Weather

Hi guys, new member - nice to meet you! Please forgive the lack of a photo with this article; I'm on my work computer & so not able to upload just at the moment. Reason for posting is basically to ask for a little advice. Having [...]
