I work in an engineering, I am 58 years old and I have always been passionate about two things, photography and building models.

Merkava mk1 hybrid

A merkava. Many years ago I built the Tamiya Merkava and lost it. Some time ago I found an offer for this model made by Takom and decided to buy it to assemble it when there was time. This specific tank model is one of the ones that I find most [...]

Canadair

Good morning, a few months ago, in a post by Boris Grgić, I commented that I was finishing a Canadair. The famous seaplane from forest fires, at least in my country, where we have suffered, has been a problem for a long time. Sometimes because o[...]

Electromagnetic Lambretta

Good evening, after a few weeks of forced confinement, I have dedicated part of my time to creating this model. I hope you are all well and that the corona virus has affected you the least. I explain the pot Electromagnetic Lambretta, modified L[...]

Canadair

If it does not seem bad to you, and I am not sure if there is any specific site for photos, I am attaching those of the Canadair and a helicopter in full action. These are part of the photos that I have commented on in Boris's post. What a coinc[...]

Type 97 Chi-Ha

Good morning to everybody. Finally, after many days I have got some time to finish this diorama. It is assembled from the Chi-Ha de Tamiya at 1:35 and is also bought in Japan at an official Tamiya shop. Thanks to a colleague who went on a weddi[...]

leopard in winter version

This is an old Leopard 1/35 from Revell, I was in the house of a colleague who bought it many years ago and did not build it. One day talking about modeling he told me he had this kit and that he gave it to me. Obviously I said yes and I started[...]

Mefistofele

good afternoon. After a long time building only models of planes or tanks I saw an Italieri kit that caught my attention at 1:16 scale and at the first opportunity I decided to mount it. Levo with almost 6 months but it has been a great experie[...]
