This 1/10 female bust is a resin cast with superb details. I just love the pose and the slight devilish look in her eyes. The plan was to try out NMM (Non-Metallic Metals) but chickened out and went for Citadel metallic paints. Thanks for watching.
I bought this resin bust on a trip to London back in 1998. It had no box or any information, only the resin bust in a plastic bag. I think it’s 1/5 scale but know nothing more about it. Remember this was 7 years before Youtube.com came about an[...]

I bought this 90mm (1/18 scale) metal figure from ANDREA some 10+ years ago. I didn’t get around to building it as my kids took more and more of my spare time. So, after getting back into the hobby I dusted the cobwebs of the box and gave it a g[...]

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.
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[...]
This is a 1/10 bust I painted back in 2005 before my twin daughters started taking up most of my spare time.
I had fun painting this bust but as always the result is never as good as I envisioned it when I started. Still, for every model one builds, some learning is gained.
