Hello and some builds

Postby lifeinscale » Sat Feb 09, 2019 11:13 pm

Hello,
I am from the Hunter Valley, near Newcastle, thought I would say hello and post some of my builds. Have been building since I was a kid but gave it up for a very long time, starting again in my 30's with an airbrush. Here's my latest, an Italeri 1/48 Typhoon out of the box.

I may have posted on here a fair while ago, I can't remember. Work has taken me away from modelling for extended stints here and there.

Cheers,
Ryan (@lifeinscale on Instagram)
