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.

Scratch build Patriot Launcher Module

The photos are not in chronological order. That meant I had to upload one photo at a time to keep it in the right order. I just could not be bothered. (Is there a way to do so after upload?). This is a build I did way in 2007, if my memory ser[...]

Highway of death

I have been trying out different techniques and diorama design styles for some time now. Been working out on the 'Damaged scattered' look, and car damaged look. Haven't been able to decide on a possible diorama look but been working on variation[...]

The Mantis – The AG(anti-gravity) bike

Yes. It's another hover bike. I told you, I was into the anti-gravity mood. ;) Original kit bashing, using parts from the same kit and minor other parts to create this beast. The engines are electrical shells and many small bits and pieces rangi[...]

Smile for the TIMES

I think this diorama can be called finished. Although, I am still adding small details here and there still. But here are some photos of diorama in its entirety since the last time I uploaded, under a different title. I have been struggling with[...]

AMG GT3 – Moded

This is definitely out of my comfort zone. But, what the heck! Here it is. This is my version of the AMG GT3 race car. As always, I like to give all my builds a twist in terms of design and/or configuration. The amg gt3 is no exception. My theme[...]

A 1/35 wheel/suspension

Just playing around with a hand/finger in shot comparison.

Diorama Progress

This diorama is almost complete. I have been working on/off for over two years now. That's a century in my book. But I never did get it to where I wanted it. I have to add another figure and a couple more details before I call it 100% done. But [...]

Fire Fight

This diorama has gone through many changes. I have now scaled it down to a small diorama which I think will be the final look, I have been working on, changing and adding figures as well as re-working, and detailing them. The diorama is based d[...]

Technical pickup

This was from a previous diorama that I had dis-mantled. I decided to just make it as a stand-alone model. I re-did the pickup and figures to improve the look of it. I am not a figure building expert but the look of them, looks much better than [...]

‘Renovation in Progress’ Diorama

Added the figures and details to the diorama. Unfortunately the figures did not turn out as nice as I would have it. The figures are from Fugimi racing set and they are not the best. The facial feature was a hassle to get right with pretty much [...]
