by Michel Verschuere on December 4, 2016 in Armor -- 7 Comments

Some history: This kit dates back from the seventies but has been reboxed and retooled by Tamiya recently. There are some kit add-ons and three figures. I was intrigued by the story of these massive L/60 Howitzers during the siege […]

Tasca/Asuka/Eduard M4A1, Normandy

by Jay Biga on December 3, 2016 in Armor -- 14 Comments

Some in progress shots of my M4A1 of the 2nd Armored Division in Normandy. The model is the 1:35 Tasca/Asuka kit, but was sold as an Eduard boxing, with some extra PE added. For some reason this made it cheaper […]

M123 HMUPS Gun truck

by Stellan Schroeder Englund on December 3, 2016 in Armor -- 24 Comments

by Ralph Clements on November 26, 2016 in Armor -- 9 Comments

Here is my just finished Tamiya 1/35 scale M60A1. It is pretty much straight out of box, but I wanted a camo version so I did that, but then used the kit decals for 5th Mechanized Infantry Division, so it […]

Tamiya M10 IIC Achilles 1/48

by Dennis Meyers on November 25, 2016 in Armor -- 12 Comments
