just added an article by SirMadog. Ulrich has written up a smashing article on his mini module layout for the JRM site!

another great addition showing how many ways there is to proverbially skin the kitty.

 

i must take editorial note to his article title, he is definitely not a "mediocre" modeler...

 

cheers

Again, if folks have a layout article they would like to submit for the jrm site, yell!

 

also any small articles on a product review, modeling technique, etc is also great. just trying to collect a lot of the gems that pass through the forum here, but then either get buried or strung out and hard for newbies to access. we get a lot of newbies across the site, so just trying to show them the variety of ways to approach japanese modeling!

 

cheers
