Despite the more than occasional deviation, I mostly build armour, from WW2 to modern.

Work in progress on a Bocage base for the Tamiya Marder 1.

At the moment I'm working on the Tamiya Marder 1 and I'm putting it on a small diorama base, since I like showing these vehicles in their natural habitats. The model, figures and the base are not finished yet, but here are some in progress [...]

Tamiya AMX-13, French army

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 [...]

My first for 2021

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.

Airfix 1/72 A-4B Skyhawk, VA-15 Valions, USS Intrepid, Tonkin Gulf 1967

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 [...]

Tamiya M3 Stuart, North Africa

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 [...]

M46 Patton, Charlie Company, 1st Marine Tank Battalion, Korea, 1952.

Hi all, Just a few bits to add, which will be done once I have a base for it to go on, but I'm calling this done. My second finished project for 2020. This is the Takom M46 Patton.

Airfix 1/72 A-4B Skyhawk, VA-15 Valions, USS Intrepid, Tonkin Gulf 1967

Hi all, In order to keep the illusion going for the kids, I always purchase gifts for my wife and myself to put under the tree with their gifts around Christmas. For myself I usually just get something cheap and so this year I bought the [...]

Sergeant Oddball, 6th Armored Division, summer 1944, France.

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 [...]

Tamiya Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausf. E Tiger

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.

IJN battleship Fuso no.1 turret

Finally found the time to finish this one.
