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

Avro Shackleton AEW.2

A fabulous aircraft to be found at the MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry) museum in Manchester is the Avro Shackleton. It is huge and can´t really be seen in its full as museum space is a bit cramped and lots of other aircraft are spread out [...]

English Electric P.1A

This is an aircraft to love. Big, brutal and simple. If you think you recognize its basic shape you are quite right. This is the forefather of the EE Lightning. A few changes were made on the production machines, more than what is visible but th[...]

ModelExpo 08 Open 2018

Today I spent a few hours at the local IPMS Stockholm show, ModelExpo 08 Open. Lots of wonderful models, some very unique others not so very but still very skillfully made. For various reasons I chose not to participate with any models this year[...]

1/6 Sherman

Finally! With a handful of friends from IPMS Stockholm I finally can conclude this monster of a model to be done. It just took....a number of years....to finish. I first thought this beast to be an easy match as everything big must be simple to [...]

Mr Ugly, a mail delivery van with a sting

Had an AMT Ford ´40 Delivery van in 1/25 scale lying in my cellar since 2005. The quality wasn´t great and I had lost my heart finishing it right after opening the box more than a decade ago. The good side of this I had a fresh start when I fina[...]

Airfix 1/48 North American P-51D Mustang – Kit Review

This is a review of the new (2017) Airfix model kit of the ever popular P-51D Mustang in 1/48 scale. Box number is A05131. I suspect we don´t need to waste any time and space on the P-51 history so we go straight to the review. The kit is moul[...]

Bobcat Model 1/48 Yak-28P Firebar – Kit Review

A Yak-28P, who would have thought we would have a nice rendition of this important cold war warrior. It doesn´t come closer to a more Flash Gordon-esque aircraft than this, with huge engines, pointy things sticking out here and there, a weird b[...]

A 38A Skyraider

This is my rendition of a Skyraider in the use of the Royal Swedish Air Force if the Sandy CSAR concept had been brought to the temperate and sub-arctic forests and mountains of the Scandinavian peninsula from the steaming jungles of Vietnam and[...]

S 38B Skyraider

By 1972 a number of the remaining Skyraiders in the Royal Swedish Air Force inventory were re-designated from A (attack) to S (spaning) for the new role as search and rescue aircraft to operate over the Baltic sea and the West coast. A great num[...]

Airing some full scale stuff at Arsenalen museum

Yesterday was a Bring-out-the-vehicles day at Arsenalen military vehicle museum just outside the town of Strängnäs, Sweden. I try to be around a bit to volunteer for the activities as there are not many actually hired staff to keep the museum an[...]
