Sd.Kfz 173 Jagdpanther – X-mas gift

I was pure airplanes kits builder. But I want to make my son happy so I build him some tanks who he can put into his display and collect – maybe even play with them. So, I bought some really […]

Leopard 2 A6

Tamiya’s 1/35 Leopard 2 A6 rounds off my current crop of builds before the Christmas holidays. It’s a Tamiya so this is very much an out of box build. Markings are for an example used by the 5th Company, 203rd […]

A change of pace in building something that doesn’t have wings. With a few armor and soft skin kits in the stash, this one was quite interesting picking it up at a kit show a few years ago. When it […]
