1:12 scale goodies: Miniature Meile Oven and other things!

One of the (very silly) reasons I feel like I hold myself back from finishing anything is because I want to wait to share with you, my audience, or anyone really, the things I acquire before I use it for any planned project. Really, it is a very silly resson, but I guess I want […]
