I have been interested in the building aspect of model making. I love building dirty trucks that look used. Show trucks are great to look at but built-to-look used is what does it for me. I've been building trucks since 2011. Before that I've been building modern military vehicles since 2002. Must say that truck building is fun and nicer on the eyes, if you old chaps know what I mean.

"Take'em Down!" ver 3

This is a re-make of a previous diorama, together with vehicles from another diorama added to the mix. There is also a newer vehicle added to the diorama to give it more flavor. The reason for this new diorama mixed with the old, is [...]

Street Battle

This diorama came about of necessity. A diorama had been destroyed by a child sometime ago. I decided to re-use items from that diorama together with another diorama to make up for the destroyed one. Most of the figures have been taken [...]

Truck Overload

Like my last overload project this one takes things a little further. The scale is 1/35, simply because, I had this vehicle on hand, that I did not know what to do with it. So I turn it from being a military truck to a civilian vehicle [...]

Mono Wheel – ‘The Ripper’

The Ripper - The overall build is based on Shane Baxley's, 3D design art. As usual, all the details were constructed using whatever looked the part. So, not all the details are accurate to the original 3D art that Shane did. I modified [...]

The M972F with a ‘burnt out’ excavator

This is a heavy modification of the M915 kit from Trumpeter. As always I decided to spice things up a bit as usual. I wanted to do something different. So, I kit-bashed the trailer and tractor that came in the kit, to bring forth this [...]

How to make a metal plate out of cardboard

I've been asked, many times over, how I achieved the steel plate loads, I did for a build, many years ago. It's not the most updated fancy method, that everyone seems to be doing today, but it works and give pretty much the same results. [...]

‘By Any Means Necessary’

Based on a photo I got off the internet many years ago. Just goes to show, nothing is impossible or unbelievable. A revival of an old vignette made anew. I had intended this little dio to be a IOF dio but decided to go for the 'different' [...]
