A Fun Fantasy Kit!

Last year I started quite a few kits but for various reasons (none good really) I only finished one. So one of my goals for this year is to either finish last year’s previously started kits or “send them on their way.” Second on my list (the Wi[...]

In times past I’ve used a silver color pencil to make wear marks on aircraft models. I was wondering if any other imodelers had done that. I had just recently had the thought to try using black in certain applications.

Trumpeter 1/35 BTR-70 – And Why I Cannot Take The Blame For It

The other day it dawned on me I had not posted anything finished in quite some time. This is in part because - well, life and things, in part it is because I have not really finished anything to an extent I was entirely happy with. Which is we[...]
