Honest product reviews published almost in real time is one of the joys of the internet. I don't think everything must be reviewed, but I intend to upload reviews in this section anytime whenever I think it is worth. For now I'm mixing kit & book reviews with modeling supplies and tools. If you have something interesting to add here, just let me know...
