Build: Lighthouse Mod

Build: Lighthouse Mod

This model modification has been in the works for a very long time. I don’t know how long, but I know it was well before October of 2018 that I starting thinking about it. I know that because I went through several ideas before finally settling on one, and that last one I started executing […]

It’s probably cliche and trite to build this model and schedule the blog post to release at the exact minute, 50 years later, but […]
