Meng 1:35 US Cougar 6×6 MRAP

My 5th model from Meng (and 6th from the start of my modeling journey). The work was a pleasure (quality!).

Tamiya British 7ton Armoured Car Mk IV 1:48. Painted with Tamiya acrylic, and weathered with a Tamiya weathering set. The figure was painted the basic colours, then a black wash was applied. Markings are in the 1st Polish Armoured Division.

Revell Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) in 1:35 (#03237), with Diorama

Some history: I do not regularly build Revell kits in 1:35th scale but I found this kit #03237 a nice addition to my collection of armor so I went for it. The kit is essentially a rebox of CMK’s Pz. […]

M18 Hellcat

Just finished my Academy M18 Hellcat… Bought as soon as it came out in 1997, started almost as soon as I got it home and finished this morning !! – no I’m not kidding. I used about 30% of the […]

Tank Museum part two; Tank Heaven in Devon!

Greetings everyone !!!! I finished this one up a few nights ago… when I finished the Russian KV-1 with bolt on applique armor. This Tamiya German “Panther D” tank has a build thread following this link to the “Year of […]

1/35 Tamiya KV-1 Russian tank with Bolt on Armor

This KV-1 was a monster of a tank for it’s time………………. and it caught the Germans by nasty surprise when they first encountered them in combat on the Eastern Front. In fact this tank is probably one of the reasons […]
