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

M123 HMUPS Gun truck

In times of need, you do what you have to do. Even if it means scrounging the base mail delivery vehicle for service. The now well known M123 HMUPS was originally a stop gap initiative by local troops on over seas deployment but was so successf[...]

Grandpa´s jeep

Been experimenting a bit lately. Being very fond of the classic jeep I got an idea I wanted to realize. As in many countries one can find old military vehicles with an interesting background in Sweden. After many years of doing research and coll[...]

Tamiya´s SU 122 off to a new home

Decided to get rid of some models I have had for a long time, they will now go to a new home. The brown/green/black is a WhIF in Swedish camouflage and markings, as if used in the 1940s. The second one is painted using an illustration as inspir[...]

Reconnaissance squadron F 11 museum

This Saturday I went to the F 11 museum right outside the town of Nyköping, Sweden. F 11 stands for Flygflottilj no 11, the former recce squadron of the Swedish Air force. A number of propeller and jet aircraft have been based here through the y[...]

Fiat GB.500 bis

Thulin X
