I built plastic models as a kid, quit when 15 and took it up again ca 2002. I build mostly ships in 1:350. I’ve spent large parts of my life in the Stockholm Archipelago and I used to be a very keen sea kayaker. I like to take part in modelling contests and have also done quite a bit of judging.

FW 190 D restauration project at Gatow, Berlin

Being a member of IPMS-Deutschland entails certain privileges. One of them is being taken on a tour through the restoration workshop at the Luftwaffenmuseum in Gatow, just outside Berlin. This takes place during IPMS-Deutschlands annual modeling[...]

Me 163 Walkaround

The Me 163 has been a part of the exhibition at Gatow Luftwaffenmuseum for years, but it used to be exhibited in a separate room. Now, it’s hanging from the ceiling which creates a much more dramatic effect. Enjoy the pictures.

Heinkel 111 Walkaround

The exhibition at the Luftwaffenmuseum in Gatow outside Berlin has been rebuilt and some new aircraft are being exhibited. The He 111 caught my eye, so I thought I'd share some pictures of them here. Four years ago, this aircraft was still in th[...]

FW 190 A8 Walkaround

Four years ago, I wrote an article about how a FW 190 A8 was being restored at the Luftwaffenmuseum in Gatow outside Berlin, Germany A year ago the restoration was finished and the aircraft is now exhibited in the rebuilt exhibition. The ai[...]

Scratchbuilding the Duca d’Aosta

I always wanted her. Who? The Duca d’Aosta of course, the Italian Beauty! Between the two World Wars, the Italians built a series of twelve light cruisers in five classes, the so called Condottieri Cruisers. The first classes were weakly buil[...]

08-open in stockholm 13-14 march.

It’s a bit strange, that there has been no article about the 08-OPEN here on imodeler, considering the fact that the founder of the site and some of the editors come from the club that arranges it, IPMS-Stockholm. So, I think it’s about time tha[...]

Festiwal Modelarski in Bytom, Poland – Part two

Here are some of the aircraft, and military vehicles that were to be seen in Bytom this last weekend. These picture galleries do not do justice to the great quality and variation of the models exhibited at the show, but I hope they’ll give a lit[...]

Festiwal Modelarski in Bytom, Poland – Part one

The model show in Bytom is the largest one in Poland and the one with the longest tradition. As opposed to the shows in Telford, Moson and Lingen, where you hear all the languages of Europe when you walk between the tables looking at the models,[...]

French Battleship Dunkerque in 1:350

In 1931, Germany launched the Panzerschiff Deutschland, the first of a class of three commerce raiders, the following ones being the Admiral Scheer and the Graf Spee. These ships were somewhat condescendingly labelled ”pocket battleships” but[...]

My “Model of the Month” award kit just arrived!

I'm very proud and happy to have won the iModeler October award. Today, the price, Trumpeters Richelieu arrived. When I've finished her, I'll have a nice little french collection. It's a typical Trumpeter ship model kit, that is, it's basically[...]
