Based in Sweden and South Australia. Armour, soft skin, aviation, weird contraptions, anything goes on my build table.

Hog´s heaven

Tamiya´s domestic animal box is quite thought provoking as it has you think about new ways to make a diorama interesting. After previously using the German shepherd and the family of chickens and hens, I still had to do something with the [...]

Knock-off time

Gloster Meteor F.8 at Försökscentralen

The Försökscentralen (Test & Evaluation squadron) is a lesser known part of the Swedish air force. It tests flying materiel, tactics and equipment. Although it probably got less money in the budge than Pentagon use for paperclips in [...]
