…under the pile of stuff I have accumulated.
Getting started has a phase of accumulation I find, where hoarding exceeds painting/making. I am mid-phase. Now under way to produce more. Still holding to the cheapnis principle.

If you are starting, Aliexpress, Amazon and Ebay can fill your gamesroom/workshop without emptying your pocket. Much. Maybe.

I like what you did with triceratops people. What putty are you using to bind the parts?

It's nice to finally see a scale reference on that Russian APC. Did you get yours from Aliexpress?

CC.. The APC was from Ali Express. Close to 1/35 I think. Other vehicles get too big for table I found.
I use old fashioned method to fit parts..I cut the join flat, set a pin in one side then superglue it as i push it home. Then i fill any gap with pva glue and paint. i have to say I am not after prizes… great you think they look ok.
