About Namabiiru
After a 20+ year hiatus from modeling, I broke my leg skiing a few years back and was essentially immobile for several weeks. Having exhausted my library and with few other options, I pulled a Tamiya M1 Abrams (no, not an M1A1--this kit was older than that!) out of the closet and the bug bit me hard! Amazing how much modeling technology (kits, supplies, etc.) has advanced in 20 years! Focus is primarily on 1/35 AFVs, but have a few aircraft kits in the closet waiting to return to the light of day.
