TAMIYA T34-85

Built straight OOB. No problems, just a fun little kit to build while I'm recovering from illness. Few things i DONT like about this kit is the gaping chasm where the driver should be if, as i did, you build it with the hatch open, and [...]

Air Defence...1/48 Flakpanzer IV "Möbelwagen" with 3,7cm Flak 43

After a longer pause and for some diversion between all the aircraft, my dad built a little armour model. Great Tamiya kit, falls together, painted with Tamiya XF-60/62/64 Build thread here (link)

Steyr RSO 1/35 Das Werk

This is the RSO from Das Werk I finished some time ago. It had been unfinished on the shelf of shame for some time as I wanted a tarp on it but I did not know how and could not find a suitable material. Eventually I made it from thin but [...]

1/48th Tamiya M4A3E8 SHERMAN "EASY EIGHT"

Another kit built for my son, BUT, I'm keeping it! Built OOB apart from the logs which i "borrowed" from my neighbours tree to hide a blemish in the paint job (thumb print) Overall I'm happy with the finish, just wish i could get [...]

Hi folks, another bunch saved from the shelf of doom,destined to the trash bin but retrieved just in time...both kits have its fair share of limitations but are after all presentable. Hope you like it and tks for visiting!

Tamyia 1:35 German 88 at the Kasserine pass diorama

A few years back I decided to construct a Diorama of a German 88 at the battle of the Kasserine pass. I had a Tamyia German Flack 88 North African campaign kit. The barrel was warped so I get a replacement metal barrel from Abner which was [...]

Tamiya 1/35 JSU-152 heavy gun

Another gem from Tamiya

1/35 Tamiya KV-1

My latest build, Tamiya new (ish) KV-1 Model 1941. I added resin fuel tanks, resin bedrolls, and some tarps made out of Milliput. For the basecoat I used a mix of Tamiya's acrylics that I got from an old 1/48 KV-2 article written by [...]
