Check how some scratch built details and a clever scene can turn Academy’s FW-190 into a petite red bellied masterpiece!
Well this is NOT strictly scale modeling related NOR is it in 1/72 but I just had to share! My wife made me these Tiger shaped crochet Panzer Tank Slippers... and since I posted it in my Facebook profile and Missing-Lynx peeps have gone totally crazy about it! Which is
