Is Gn15 a good scale for modelling?
Ian’s Gn15 Pages I think I can honestly say I’ve had more fun modelling in Gn15 than any other scale. I’ve created many fun models and also many historically accurate models and all can run beside each other and they don’t look unusual together. Hopefully some of my work has helped the popularity of Gn15.
