I suppose this is the right time to post my first official article here.
I'd like to present one of my first built a/c since finding time to rediscover the hobby, finished early last year. This is one of Hasegawas 1/48 SBD kits, built with no[...]
In addition to the "Korea the Forgotten War" group build that will last during the exact time frame as the war did, (only 70 years later), here's another one I was thinking about.
