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.

‘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 [...]

‘Renovation in Progress’ Diorama Part 2

Another Toy mod update for this diorama, I am still working on. I finally added the boom to the diorama.So far I am liking the whole scene. Did quite a lot of modifications and some scratch building to get it to look descent enough for display. [...]

‘Renovation in Progress’ – Module 1

Here is where I am with this 'toy conversion' diorama project so far. The results speak for themselves. It is not complete yet. Still have to add more details to the excavator, add the boom arm, and other details as well as more weathering. This[...]

A collage of my present AG vehicles

So far, so good. A collection of fourteen AG vehicles in my collection. Going to be Working on my fifteenth pretty soon. I am glad many of you here have inspired me in many of my builds over the years. So thanks to those of you who inspire other[...]

Le Mans ‘2050 Anti-Gravity Race Car’

Still adding details to this build, before calling this finished. But thought I'd showed it, seeing that it was close to finish. Yep! Another anti-gravity vehicle. I can't seem to get enough. I tend to want to turn everything in to a floating su[...]

Fire Fight

The diorama is based during the Libyan conflict, like most of my most recent dioramas. The opposition is holding ground in a nearby compound where they are at a stand-off with government troops, loyal to Khadaffi. I hope you all like this build[...]

“Smile for the ‘TIME’”

This simple scene depicts a group of rebels posing for the 'TIME' magazine cover, being taken by a freelance journalist.

Gunner Joe

This build went through pretty slick. Although, figure building and painting are not really my biggest attributes; I can safely say, I have improved a little since my last figure build. I am still working on getting better so please go easy . :)[...]

The Walrus

This build went together rather easy. I started off with the IDF Nagmachon APC kit from Hobbyboss, that I received as a reward for the 'Random Award' in November 2017. I then converted the kit into a hover unit using the kits original parts onl[...]

“OLD. BUT RUNS!” – Scania LB 141

This is the model kit I got from Martin, the editor of Imodeler. It’s been mix feelings with this Heller kit. But seeing that it was a very old kit and compromises were taken into account, I now learn my way around such discrepancies in this kit[...]
