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

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 Airfix[...]

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 movie[...]

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.

Making a base for the Tamiya M3 Stuart.

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[...]

Tamiya Panzer III Ausf. N

Hi all, A few snaps of a model I did some time ago, the Tamiya offering of the Panzer III Ausf. N.

Meng World War Toon M4A1

A little model I put together and painted over a few days. If you ever need a break from all the detailing and fussing over rivets, get a kit in this series. They are fun.

Tamiya F4F-4 Wildcat build log

First off, some pictures of all the sub-assemblies. In two of the pics, the subs are just dry-fitted. All fits well, typical Tamiya.

Tasca/Asuka/Eduard M4A1, Normandy

Some in progress shots of my M4A1 of the 2nd Armored Division in Normandy. The model is the 1:35 Tasca/Asuka kit, but was sold as an Eduard boxing, with some extra PE added. For some reason this made it cheaper than buying the Asuka kit...strang[...]
