Pulled a Roden Models 1:72 Ambulance from the stash. I've heard some can't bring themselves to build a Ukrainian kit right now because it feels trite and disrespectful, but this felt more like a contemplative prayer for Ukraine. My first Roden kit and it is a beauty.

As I was finishing up the kit I heard the news that Valery Grygorenko was killed in a Russian attack near his home. Valery created some of the most amazing box art for Roden.

I can't find words strong enough.. so instead I choose to celebrate Valery's creative legacy. It will live on to inspire artists and modellers for generations to come who will remember him as one of the greats along with the likes of Airfix's Roy Cross.
