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.

Moson. The place and the people.

Mosonmagyarovar is a small town, situated in the north western corner of Hungary, close to the borders of Slovakia and Austria. This area was once a part of the Habsburg Empire, which explains why the town also has a German […]

Back to Go Modelling in Vienna.

Three years ago, I took part in Go Modelling in Vienna, the annual modeling show and contest of IPMS-Austria. http://www.ipms.at Go Modelling 2015 Vienna. Part one: The exhibition. What makes this event so special is the location in which it […]

Back to Zeiskam.

Two years ago, I took part in the PMC Südpfalz modeling show in Zeiskam in the south western corner of Germany. Highlights from Zeiskam Since the show so well organized and its atmosphere so friendly, it was clearly time 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 […]
