About c5flies
My main interest is 1/35 scale WWII armor, Axis and Allied, and will occasionally branch out into other areas. The builds I have done so far have been pretty much OOB, and considering what most newer kits include, that is usually more than enough for me. Even though my projects do not always end up looking as I envisioned them, each one is another learning experience. Experiment, learn and participate……that’s my formula for a rewarding hobby.
