My adventure into the 1/72 scale part 1

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[...]

LDM-29-C “Wachtel”

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[...]

French light tank FT-17

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[...]

Marder III diorama

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[...]

Marder III

This is my first entry at iModeler.com and this is my first plastic model built for over 50 years. When I built my cheap Airfix kits as a kid, it was more about getting the model glued and slap on the decals. No one had ever heard of weathering [...]
