R35 French Light Tank Tamiya 1:35

My first wholly 2021 build--bought, started and finished this year. This is another great Tamiya kit. What more to say? I included Monsieur Le Commandant de Char to give a sense of the size of this petite 2-man tank. The peculiar operating q[...]

M3A1 halftrack from IDF

Greetings to the forum members. On this occasion I wanted to show you my latest project: the Dragon M3A1 half-track, in 1/35 scale, in IDF version during the 1960s. It is the 2009 kit (n° 6332), and not the n° 3569, from 2016. The modifications[...]

Tamiya AMX-13, French army

Hi all, This one is almost done. Quick and easy build of the Tamiya AMX-13 kit, which is what you'd expect from recent Tamiya kits. For some reason this model got built, primered, and then sat in my "to finish pile" fort a few years (the model [...]
