I built plastic models as a kid, quit when 15 and took it up again ca 2002. I build mostly ships in 1:350. I’ve spent large parts of my life in the Stockholm Archipelago and I used to be a very keen sea kayaker. I like to take part in modelling contests and have also done quite a bit of judging.

My 2017.

I finished fewer models this year than I usually do. My competing hobby, woodworking is the guilty party here. The build year started with Mirages Flower Class Corvette HMS Zinnia. A really nice kit. An article in English is coming […]

Trumpeters Wellington Mk III.

Hi friends! I guess some of you know that this build was my “FRYING PAN CHALLENGE”. Are you ready for THE FRYING PAN CHALLENGE! Yesterday was spent planting grass on the base plate. As you can see, I made some […]

THE FRYING PAN CHALLENGE! Part 5. Model finished. Challenge met.

Is that correct English by the way? Do you “meet” a challenge? Anyway, here she is. Since the last post, I’ve worked with thin mists of various colors over the paintwork and with artists colored pencils on the decals, to […]

THE FRYING PAN CHALLENGE! Part 4. The fun has begun.

Playing around with the airbrush over large surfaces is the best part of aircraft modeling in my opinion. Before I painted the black underside, I laid a foundation of reddish brown. That was followed by a thin layer of dark […]

THE FRYING PAN CHALLENGE! Part 3. Fuselage and wings.

A german high quality virus halted the build for almost a week and ruined three days of skiing vacation, but today I got going again. The clear parts didn’t really fit as one would wish, so some putty and sanding […]

THE FRYING PAN CHALLENGE. Part 2. Cockpit and engines.

With the FRYING PAN hanging above my tender neck, like the sword of Damocles, I’ve been working away on the Wellington. The interior of the aircraft has been build and finished. Trumpeter has added quite a bit of interior to […]

Are you ready for THE FRYING PAN CHALLENGE!

Hi all modeling friends! Are you ready to pick up the gauntlet and accept THE FRYING PAN CHALLENGE? Here is how it’s done: 1. Pick a kit that has been lying in your stash for at least a year. 2. […]

Ship weathering inspiration

Over the years, I’ve taken quite a few pictures of ships that I’ve traveled with, visited or seen in harbors. Apart from this being just a part of my interest in maritime things in general, they also serve me as […]

MM Park in Watzenau

The MM Park in Wantzenau, some 12 km north of Strasbourg in the northeastern corner of France, is a recently opened military museum, dedicated mostly to vehicles and uniforms. I took the opportunity of visiting it, when I took part […]

Models in Mundolsheim Part 2

Civilian cars aren’t exactly original, but we don’t see too many of them here at imodeler, so here are some. Some great animal sculptures were exhibited. Then there was this modeler, or group of modelers, that build horse drawn carts […]
