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

Sturmtiger

This is the venerable Tamiya Sturmtiger. I'm currently working through my pile of shelf queens and this one had been sitting in the pile of shame for a number of years now. I picked it up as a bargain, including the metal ammunition that [...]

Testing out the new lightbox

Bought one of those lightboxes that you can use to take pictures of smallish objects with proper lighting, so I thought I'd give it a try.

M1025 HMMV

This is the Tamiya M1025, finished as a USMC vehicle during the 1991 Gulf War.

Bundeswehr Leopard 1a4

Hi all, This is the Meng Leopard 1a4, built straight out the box. The model will soon receive a couple of crew members to populate the model.

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

My first for 2021

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.
