It is an interesting, vaguely existential question that is remarkably difficult to answer with any certainty. Continue reading
This clever model, inexpertly folded, is an exercise in colour management- had I used bi-colour paper, the rider and carpet would be different colours – pretty neat. Continue reading
Few models try to capture the whole journey. This set, designed by Fernando Gilgado is an exception. Continue reading
Seems like big things are set to happen in the seven kingdoms.
Knights in shining armor in this series are rarely shiny at all, often dirty, lacking honor and glory – such is the reality of war. Continue reading
