suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
Formula Gan Series – My first custom toy series, which sees the marriage of F1’s sleek design and vinyl toys’ customability.
Dogfighter Super Spitfire – This set of custom aims to preserve a part of World War II, and turn it into something that’s far from the negativities that go with it. It’s for the present and the future generations to see. It’s a tribute to war planes. And it’s an honor to all the pilots who rode them.
