Zvezda Petr Velikiy Russian Warship Build Review and Pictures
October 25, 2019

Zvezda Petr Velikiy Russian Warship is a superb quality model. Even at 1/700 scale, it makes up into a nice size ship.

July 17, 2019

Revell Vought F4U-1A Corsair Model Kit proved to be a challenging build. As models go it was not only quite cheap but also quite big.
