Hey there everyone. Long time lurker here, I used to be a little active on the old forums years ago. Hope i’m posting this in the correct section, if not please forgive me.
I have recently purchased the AMX-50B kit from Amusing Hobby and i’m planning to make a fantasy build based on the World Of Tanks out of it.
