A Model a Decade… and 15 Minutes of Modelling

It is that time of year when everyone is writing about how many models they have built during the year (see here and here, for example). Indeed, Matt McDougall at Doogs Models has gone as far as to reflect on a decade of modelling. To say that I am jealous of his output is an... Continue Reading →

Boer Commando – Finished

This is one of the projects that has gone on and on. Indeed, the earliest post I can find on this blog related to this piece dates to 2009!
