My latest build is the Stug III O-series from MiniArt. As I understand it the O-series was a prototyping series for the Stug III and was only used in research and development, and later for training.
So, these tanks were probably never used in [...]
So, I’m back with another midget submarine this time the German Biber from WW2. I don’t know what it is with these submarines but they just appeal to me and I have the utmost respect for the men that operated them.
As for the model, I’m happy t[...]
So, this didn’t work out. The plan is to have a stand-off diorama and the E-100 Jagdpanzer is way to big for this setup. And as I later discovered the E-100 is something that is found in World of Tanks but probably never been built.
I’ll order [...]
So, I’m planning a new diorama that includes at least two tanks.
This is my first 1/72 scale tank, it’s the M4A3 Medium Tank from Trumpeter. I must admit that this tiny scale is a bit strange to work with and the build looks better on my desk t[...]
I bought this resin kit back in 2014 from it’s the first edition and number 34 of 50. I don’t think it’s available anymore and that is a pity as it’s a great kit.
When the kit arrived, I lost my nerve looking at all the parts and has been sitt[...]
When I ordered this kit, I had a completely different diorama planned but that was impossible to pull off. So, I built the included diorama for this kit just to have it as a placeholder for the tank, but it turned out better then I hoped. I stil[...]
Last Christmas I got the Takom King Tiger kit with full interior from my wife (talk about real love, giving your old man toys for Christmas).
When I opened the box, I realized that this is probably way over my skill level but as it was a gift I[...]
This feels a bit like cheating as I squeeze two articles from one model but the S.L.C. “Maiale” seemed a bit lonely sitting on my shelf in its cradle so I decided to make another diorama.
The ship hull was fun to build. Even if it’s not showing[...]
I do enjoy the On This Day… series from David Leigh-Smith and on his December 3rd entry there was a comment from Mon Falcone on the S.L.C Maiale that caught my eye.
This is his comment;
"December 3rd, 1941 was also the date that Decima Flotti[...]
So I finished my Marder III model a month ago an decided to build my first diorama. It was a steep learning curve but I’m happy with the result.
Without the Internet or YouTube, I would have no chance of building something like this. I even mad[...]
