A couple of months ago I came back to the hobby after a long seven years without modelling anything... Since I got into model making I always wanted to build the Bismarck. 13 years ago I purchased Revell's 1/350 scale kit, back then the best an[...]
Ever since I got the USS West Virginia in World of Warships, I have really wanted to build a model of it. There were some fitting issues with the kit but it was a pretty fun build. The entire thing is painted with one paintbrush. This is my seco[...]
