Just received my award for the 1/32 Ho-229 I submitted in May. A big thank you to the judges for selecting my model. I built the BM version of this excellent AMK kit and have big plans for this one. This is probably one of the best kits I have e[...]
Hello again! Completely OOB AMK MiG-31B/BS. This is a very well engineered kit, and it was so much fun to build. I went with the Kazakhstan Air Force markings because I did not see many of those being made. My only regret is that I didn't us[...]
