I would not say my projects fail – some just tend to lag

The only one that could be said to fail was 15mm WWII, which I just couldn't get into since I had 6mm, 20mm and 54mm – but I don't call it a fail since I got to give away some neat stuff to friendly fellow TMPers

POLL DESCRIPTION

Whirlwind asks:
