Despite the more than occasional deviation, I mostly build armour, from WW2 to modern.
Hi all, This one is almost done. Quick and easy build of the Tamiya AMX-13 kit, which is what you'd expect from recent Tamiya kits. For some reason this model got built, primered, and then sat in my "to finish pile" fort a few years (the model [...]
Hi all, Not totally finished yet, still need to add a matt varnish. Other than that, I'm calling my first model for 2021 done! A Hornet & Wolf British Desert Rat. This guy will most likely end up on a base with an M3 Grant.
Hi all, I posted pictures of this model before, but since I've added the display stand, so I figured that now it's really finished I'd post some pics of the final result. The Airfix kit was an easy build and a cheap one. I spent more on paints [...]
Hi all, Here is my rendition of Tamiya's M3 Stuart (late). I built it out of the box, with the addition of some Value Gear stowage and used the kit markings for an American tank in North Africa. The real tank was knocked out in the first clashe[...]

I am not usually much into painting large figures, but when I ran into a bust of Kelly's Heroes' sergeant Oddball, I had to pick it up. Kelly's Heroes is a movie that I watched at least once a week when I was a very young teenager and this movie[...]
Hi all, This is Tamiya 90's offering of the early Tiger. It was a quick build that I wanted to try some new stuff on. This is my first very faded white wash, and I am happy with the results.
Finally found the time to finish this one.
I decided to make a simple base for my M3 Stuart quick build. I didn't want just a wooden plinth for the tank to sit in, I wanted to add a bit of landscape too. Since I'm building mine as an American tank in Tunisia, deciding on a piece of deser[...]
