Continuing our coverage of the weekend's modeling venue Stockholm, here are some highlights from the armor categories...
This is my first post on iModeler. I've been on an "Axis Kick" as of late-I’ve got 7 different 1/32nd scale models going right now: Bf 109 E-4/7, G-2, K-4, FW 190 A-4, D-9 Ki-84, Ki-61 (Yes I suffer from Modeling ADHD!). Since I enj[...]
