Building models since age 7 (except for a short respite in my military years). Enjoying it now more than ever. I build across the spectrum but am biased towards towards historical miniatures and military vehicles.

Tamiya 1:48 Tamiya Marder III

Since March, when California's social distancing lockdown began, I have been reducing my stash and hone some modeling skills by doing monthly simple no-frills OOB builds from my personal “hobby shop” in addition to working on regular long term p[...]

Meng Jadgpanther Ausf. G11:35

Another great kit from Meng. This will be paired with my Plattformwagen Type SSys for a rail transport vignette. I was torn about how much weathering to apply, thinking that a tank in transit wouldn't be as dirty and worn as something out in t[...]

RPM 1/35 Schneider 75mm 97

Another dip into my stash for my 6th ‘staying-at-home, no-frills, build and paint’ project. August begins with 'A' which stands for Artillery. Have had this RPM 1/35 75mm 1897 Schneider waiting to be built for some time. This was very basic o[...]

Heller 1/72 D.H 89 Dragon Rapide

My fifth monthly ‘staying-at-home, no-frills, stash-reduction, build and paint’ project–July edition. (With the off-and-partially on again shutdown I wonder how long to keep this going.) This is a vintage-1979-Heller kit of an interesting subje[...]

Airfix 1/72 MIG-15

My fourth monthly ‘staying-at-home, no-frills, stash-reduction, build and paint’ project--June edition. A nice little kit that was one of Airfix's new generation. Apparently it received mixed reviews because the fuselage is a little short and s[...]

1/72 Italeri F-21A Lion/Kfir

This is my third 'no-frills, stash-reduction, build and paint' project completion while "staying at home" in California. A very cool looking aircraft used by the USMC and Navy as an 'agressor' plane for aerial combat training. Is Italeri latin [...]

IDF M48 1:35 Tamiya

This is my third completion while under social distancing lockdown in California and my second "no frills' project (from my stash, no aftermarket stuff , no exotic weathering or damaging. Just build and paint). Its nearly OOB. I used some Star [...]

Easy Eight in 48

Another 1:48 beauty from Tamiya that went together flawlessly. I started this kit intending to do it OOB. But every picture shows them loaded up to some extent. I added aftermarket gas cans, stowage and ropes. The weathering process was the[...]

1/72 M-26 (T26E3) Pershing Heavy Tank from Pegasus

This is my first completion while under social distancing lockdown in California. As luck would have it, just before this started I began an initiative to reduce my stache and hone some modeling skills. My objective is to finish a simple no-fr[...]
