USMC M60 A1 w/ERA Desert Storm

The “new guy” first time post! As a former Marine myself I thought I’d pay homage to my Desert Storm brothers with this little dio. This project contained a ton of firsts especially since I’ve only been back in the hobby for about a year now. Us[...]

1/72 M1A2 Abrams SEP TUSK II Tiger Model

The complexity of the armor and roof-top weaponry attracted me to this kit. The fact that so much detail was packed into a 72 scale kit was also an attractive challenge. The kit has some creative engineering that minimizes the parts involved i[...]

Modern Army Rail

These diesel units as utilized by the army and navy. This was my last military association. Utilizing an old Micro scale decal sheet and using Athern HO models I converted these diesels into military machines.

War Loco Revisited

This is Trumpeter’s 1/35 Baureihe (Br-) 52 Kriegslocomotive. I first posted the build three months ago as "End of the Line." I had intended to dress the landscape areas more thoroughly at that time but never seemed to get round to it. Now, whi[...]

Airing some full scale stuff at Arsenalen museum…again

Yesterday was a mid-season drive day for some of Arsenalen´s rolling collection. Although it was raining in the morning and then again in the afternoon there was quite a bunch of visitors. In the afternoon some chose to go home to watch the foo[...]
