As I am away from my paint pots for a few days, but luckily am unusually free, I thought I’d just scribble down some thoughts that have been nagging in my head for some time. As long-time readers of this blog may have already understood, I like resin vehicle and tank models for 28 mmContinue reading “A lamentation on the decline and fall of resin tank models”

So far,Continue reading “Finnish army of 1808”
