Tamiya 1:48 KV-1

This is my latest work, 1:48 KV-1 from Tamiya. Great little kit, built OOB. I played around with some weathering to achieve that “busy look”. Hope you like it.

Tamiya 1/35 Centurion Mk III tank, 4th RTR

This model depicts a Centurion Mk III of the 4th Royal Tank Regiment of the British Army, circa 1950s (?). This has the 4th RTR “Chinese eye” marking (dating back to WWI) on the front and rear of the hull. […]

“Tiger in the Woods”

In this project, I wanted to create a scene using German armour and a selection of personnel, within standard diorama parameters, represented by the Ardennes offensive in the autumn and winter period 1944/45. The basis of the diorama was Tamiya’s […]

Early armor period….

Thought I’d post some of my old attempts at building armor (otherwise known as “ground targets”) – looking back at these builds, I can see now that they weren’t as successful as I’d imagined at the time. Although the HEMMIT […]

Chieftain, a tank that looks the part

While helicopters may not be my favorite aircraft type, tanks are one of their main targets, and I like tanks. Maybe that explains my feelings? The British Chieftain “main battle tank” is the first tank that earned that definition, and […]

AFV Club 1/35 Centurion Mk 5/1 “p***y Eater” C Squadron, 1st Armd Regt, RAAC, Vietnam 1971.

This model was initially build as part of a club display for QMHE 2013, the club theme was “Conflict 1946 to Present”. The kit is the AFV Club 1/35 RAAC Centurion and it was built with the addition of an […]

Endgame – Berlin 1945

While I’ve been absent-mindedly progessing (well, we’ll call it that) with my Royal Caroline wooden ship, and from time to time checking out the lovely builds on iM (and, just to keep in the loop, posting a few builds I’ve […]

M8 Greyhound Italeri 1/35 kit

I think this was my third kit to start. It is an OOB build that I started quite a while ago but only finished weathering and decals just now. Painted with olive drab, with white interior, spray cans with black […]

M1A2 Abrams with TUSK

This is the 1/35 Dragon SEP kit of the Abrams MBT, with the Legend TUSK (Tank Urban Survival Kit) upgrade. The kit is a little hard to find now, I believe, and I got mine from someone in our club […]

Trumpeter BMP 1

Couple week’s work. Nearing completion now. Still detail work and some weathering with pigments and the like to go. Really nice build.
