Based in Stockholm, Sweden, and South Australia at times. Armour, soft skin, aviation, weird contraptions, anything goes on my build table.

The Riveting Challenge

OK, I think think some of you now have understood a bit what makes me tick when it comes to modelling and the original machine. Details. Weird ones. Sometimes one is struck by how unrefined some machines are, how close […]

DH 89A Dragon Rapide

OK, lets take a stride away from the local brand of Avro for a while and go for another British house hold name, de Havilland. This absolute classic is another civilian in silver dope. It was built in 1935 and […]

Avro 504 K

This beautiful Avro 504 K is a real classic and can be seen at the MOSI museum in Manchester, England. The 504 was designed in 1913 and was used as a standard trainer for RFC and later RAF during WW […]

1/6 Sherman

Finally! With a handful of friends from IPMS Stockholm I finally can conclude this monster of a model to be done. It just took….a number of years….to finish. I first thought this beast to be an easy match as everything […]

Mr Ugly, a mail delivery van with a sting

Had an AMT Ford ´40 Delivery van in 1/25 scale lying in my cellar since 2005. The quality wasn´t great and I had lost my heart finishing it right after opening the box more than a decade ago. The good […]
