I started building scale models around 7-8 years old.. influenced by my older cousin and an uncle who built models. I remember seeing the finished models of planes and being immediately drawn into the hobby. I kept building and slowly improved my skill until my college days in the early '90's. After that, I just stopped building and put my unbuild kits in storage. Fast forward to 2020 and I dive back into scale modelling hard. I refreshed all my tools & supplies and bought an airbrush & compressor. I dug out my partially built Tamiya T-34 Model 1943 and finished it. I was hooked again.

My primary interest is 1/35 WW2 armour. This time, I don't plan on leaving the hobby..

RFM 1/35 Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.J

Bronco 1/35 Pz.Kpfw.II Ausf.D

Since returning to this hobby in 2020, I decided to focus on WW2 armour in 1/35. My first purchase happened to be this Bronco Pz.II Ausf.D and a HobbyBoss Pz.I Ausf.A. I was thinking of building some german tanks in a somewhat [...]

Tamiya 1/35 T-34/76 Model 1943

I bought & started this kit in the early '90's. I put it away and stopped building because of other things in life. Fast forward to 2020 and my interest in scale modelling is revived. I acquired new tools & supplies.. most [...]
