Newbie from Glos

Post by Spartan » Wed Jul 13, 2016 10:39 pm

Hello my names Andy,I became interested in model tanks about 8 months ago I now have 17 1/16 scale RC tanks at presant I'm going through a few health issues but would like to get a 1/6 scale when I find what I'm looking for as I'm a bit of a fussy sod, at the momant I'm building 3 KTs that I've just started painting and weathering, Andy

Cool, what did you go for, something British and modern perhaps?
