Hello everyone! Welcome to my website that I will dedicate to the art of scale modelling- especially armour modelling, painting and weathering. This site will take off as a straight day-after-day blog. But successively,  the most valuable content as SBS, reviews or galleries will be published on separate pages for easy access. Feel free to browse my site and keep modelling! ScaleDracula
