  1. Hi, nice to see a regularly updated blog.

    As a tip, would it be possible to have an indication in the pictures of the scale of the items shown? It would be useful to know whether a particular item is 1/12, 1/144 or real life. This would help in enjoying the detail and comparing to one’s own work.

    Enjoy miniaturing
