D-Day Group Build – 1/35 Centaur Mk IV Close Support British Cruiser Tank

Hi folks, here's my D-Day contribution, Tamiya's 1/35 kit of the Centaur. Quoting from the instruction sheet: After the 1942 Dieppe raid, the Royal Marine Division refined the techniques for combined operations such as assault landings on enem[...]

Ducati 900 NCR Racer

This is my latest build in the (mainly) Tamiya 1/12 series of motor cycles. Keeping with Ducati's tradition of modifying their road bikes for racing, the firm of NCR (consisting of three ex Ducati engineers) was entrusted with the preparation o[...]
