All about AFV and other military model making.
Greetings all, Its been a long time since I posted any build, so here is my latest work which is the Sherman tank M4A2E8 "Fury" tank as depicted in the movie. I did some modification in terms of the tank accessories and weathering effects. The[...]
I had the modelcollect 1:72 E-75 and wanted to upgun it to 128mm based on images I'd seen online. I found a barrel on ebay and got to work in Fusion 3D to make a new Turret. I printed the turret via Shapeways and bashed some of the detail from[...]
I finished the Trumpeter's kit with a few additions. The canvases on the tank are made of napkins. I tried to make add-on armors from unused parts of old models. I used the MIG Winter Camo Set product for the paint chippings on the tank. I hope [...]
I really like Sherman with cast hull. This is a Firefly from Guards Arm. Div., 5 Guards Arm. Brig., 5 Btl. Coldstream Guards, ASqn 2C. I added some stowage from Legend. The figure is from a Minecraft British tank crew set.
Recently I finished my adventure with 1/24 scale planes and started playing with 1/16 scale tanks. I present my first model on this scale, which I worked on for 3 months. This is Tiger I from Boss Hobby. The model is very impressive, it is 52 cm[...]

I really like the look of an early Sherman. The kit has a metal cast hull to give it more weight. There was quite a bit of filling needed between the plastic part and the metal hull. Other than that, it was a pretty easy kit to build. I used di[...]
The old Tamiya Panzer II Ausf D was my first tank model. After all these years and stuck at home, I think it is fun to revisit this tank. I used multiple hues of German grey in layers. In between layers, I applied chipping fluid between and ch[...]
I got tired of the T-90 model that I had been trying to finish for a while and put it on display and decided to start a new model. Erhan Atalay gave me this interesting kit. Many sprues that came out of the kit box were hardly used. There are [...]
Here’s the Italeri Tiger I E with a ton of extras. I used leftover brass, bits of plastic and wire and unused parts from various other kits. The markings are of Otto Carius’s “213” of pz.abt 503 from Bison Decals. Brian Riedel
