Kaiyodo Goes Into Plamodels: Do-Yanen 1/35 Sturm Kafer (from “Maschinen Krieger”)

I've primarily known Kaiyodo from their Revoltech-based action figure lines. And while they do offer other stuff, I believe this is what they're most known for.

Unfortunately, these require skills beyond me, or time that I don't have the luxury. But it looks like I may … Continue reading Plastic Crack: NZ Industrial 1/35 Riesen-Panzer IV
