Amazon’s Pet

I painted this model from Cellar Cast back in 1998. It is sculpted by the artist Steve West after a painting from Boris Vallejo. The model is from 1995 and I also have another Vallejo sculpture from Steve West, -the Primeval Princess from 1994 [...]

M3 lee

This is my take on the M3 LEE. The kit is from TAMIYA and it comes together very well. That said, I’m not too happy with the result. It might be the wrong weathering or color as it did not come out as good as I hoped it would. Any ideas?

Outpost in Libya, fall 1941

So I ended up building a diorama for my Sd.Kfz. 222 Leichter Panzerspähwagen but it needed something more than just the 222. As I already had the FLAK 37 anti-aircraft gun on my shelf, I decided to use that as it had some nice figures as well. [...]

Sd.Kfz. 222 Leichter Panzerspähwagen

Information from the TAMIYA instruction manual; “In the early 1930s, under weapon restrictions enforced by the Versailles Treaty, the German army was limited to using Kfz.13 armored vehicles. However, based on the chassis of an Adler passenger v[...]

Steampunk aircraft

As I’m a bit reluctant to venture into the complex world of aircraft modelers I decided to start small and got this small 1:35 resin kit. It is probably a pirate copy as the kit arrived with no instructions of any kind. It took a lot of cutting[...]

Stug iii o-series

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 [...]

U-Boot Biber

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[...]

My adventure into the 1/72 scale part 1.5 (fail)

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 [...]

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[...]
