The harbinger of death

This is my first attempt at painting with oils. It’s oil over acrylics and that seems to work for me, as the oils lend itself better for blending and if you make a mistake you can pull the paint off again with thinner. This model probably wasn’t[...]

Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-10

This is my first plane since I built some back in the early 70’. Back then we didn’t bother painting the models, only glued them together and slapped on the decals. All in all a fun build but I think I’ll stick to armor models :-)

German Sturmgeschutz III Aust. F

This is part of a diorama I have planned but it is a long way away. Happy with the model but 1/72 scale is a bit on the small size for me.

French armored carrier ue

As the French army underwent mechanization in the 1920s, the need arose for a small, tracked armored vehicle capable of transporting supplies and weapons to the front lines and towing light artillery. In October 1930, Renault's armored carrier E[...]

U.S. NAVY Diver, 1941

This is a 1/10 bust I painted back in 2005 before my twin daughters started taking up most of my spare time.

Resin Fantasy Bust 1/10

Zundapp KS 750 with sidecar

After building the tiny INDIAN 741B I wanted to try another motorcycle but a bigger scale. So, I got me an ITALERI kit of the Zundapp KS 750 with the sidecar scale 1:9 and boy was it bigger. Still, a fun kit to build with lots of detail and part[...]

Sweden Strv 103C MBT

I find this tank fascinating. The low profile and turretless design just appeal to me. My build might be classified as a ‘What if..’ as most of the models I have seen has the distinct splinter camouflage as used by the Swedish armed forces. I pa[...]

Happy wife, happy life

I know this is probably not the forum for DIY arts and crafts, but none the less I would like to share this model I built for my wife’s birthday. I wanted to build her something, but as she has no interest in tanks or aircraft, I had to come up[...]
