Over spongya
I am a biologist by trade, and as a hobby I've been building scale models for the last twenty years. Recently I started to write reviews of the models I bought. These reviews are written from the point of view of an average model builder; hence the focus is on quality of the model, how easy it is to build it, how enjoyable the build is, rather than the absolute historical accuracy. (Although that too is important.) I write these reviews because it's a good way to share an interesting, lesser known model with the larger community, and it's a good practice in writing.
