Tamiya 1/35 Panzer II and more…

I grabbed this $13 Tamiya kit off the shelf intending it to be a weekend build. It turned into a week full of evenings building and experimenting with preshading, Tamiya putty, Vallejo pigments and oil washes. It's amazing the difference you g[...]

Das Werk 1/35 Panther

This is a great kit that took up most of February . It's my first Das Werk build and I was impressed with the level of detail and quality of engineering. This kit as originally issued contained a full interior. This later issue excludes the int[...]

Getting Back Into This

My son gave me the Revell 1:48 B-17G as a Christmas present. I used to do this hobby as a kid. When I found this site, I kinda thought about taking the hobby up again. I've taken in some scale model shows and even bumped into an old friend that [...]
