Trumpeter 1/48 F9F-2 Panther

Amusing Hobby 1/35 FV 214 "Conqueror" Mk 2

Model 3 of 4 for 2021! I'd have done more, but gestures widely life gets in the way. The Conqueror was the last British heavy tank, armed with a massive 120mm rifled cannon and was intended to knock out Soviet IS-3s and T-10Ms flooding [...]
