“Berlin, April 1945″

Here's my small dio/vignette featuring Tamiya's JSU-152. It's intended to depict the Soviets advancing through Berlin in early April 1945, right before the end of the war. The JSU-152 was built OOB. It's a wonderful kit that goes together very [...]

Tamiya 1/35 M51 Super Sherman

Here's my Tamiya M51 Super Sherman. The kit was built OOB (out-of-box) with no extras added. This kit goes together very well (it's a Tamiya after all, right?). No fit issues, no putty, just shake the box, add some glue and paint and there it [...]

1/35 M1025 Humvee

I had no plan to build a Humvee of any sort until Tamiya announced their M1025. Just one of those cases where I had the urge to build something just because it was a Tamiya kit and I knew it was going to make for a fun and straight forward build[...]

1/35 M24 Chaffee

This little scene portrays a Chaffee with its crew scouting for enemy activity on the outskirts of a German town during the late winter of 1945. The kit used is the newish Bronco offering built largely out of the box. As is typical for Bronco t[...]

Tamiya 1/35 – M-51 Sherman

A period of me-time between contracts afforded the opportunity to make Tamiya's new 1/35 M-51 Sherman. I've been wanting to build a HVSS Sherman for ages and this kit is an absolute ripper - easy to build with fantastic detail straight out of th[...]

Battle of the Bulge M4A3E8 Sherman U.S. 4th Armoured Division Bastogne.

Hi Guys, Here's a vignette of my M4A3E8 Sherman that I built using Tasca's excellent Sherman kit. I wanted to model a picture of an "E8" during the battle of the bulge and I found a picture of one that was taken just outside Bastogne, Belgium i[...]

“Right of Way”

This dio is supposed to take place in the Normandy bocage on or immediately after D-Day. This is old stuff, the Stug is the old original Tamiya 'G', much reworked and kitbashed with parts from the Stug IV kit, with tracks from the old Italaeri [...]

1/48th AFV Club, Sturmtiger

I broke one of my own rules and bought this kit a short while (probably 6-8 months) back when Squadron ran a great deal on it. I had always liked the vehicle regardless of its impracticality and the real lack of need for it by the time it was c[...]

French Cannon, model 1878, 1:48, scratchbuilt

So far I have not been stopped, continue to post my models :)) This time - artillery, namely French cannon in 1878. Caliber can be 120 or 155 mm, because the model will get a little bigger 48th scale. So it is rather a collective image of French[...]

Dragon ‘Smart Kit’ 1/35 Panther Ausf A

This is one of the few armor kits I have built. All of my armor is OOB, due to it being built for an in club build contest, which follows the IPMS Out Of Box rules. I chose to build this kit because I have always liked the "modern" look of the[...]
