Panzerwaffe workhorse-Pzkw IV "F" model. Tamiya 1/35

There's plenty of info out there on this one, so won't go hunting and pecking too much. Just suffice to say, this one was the load carrier of the Panzer divisions for most of the war. Tamiya just came out with two "F" versions, [...]

1/48 Tamiya Jeep

Another 1/48 gem from Tamiya.

Whippet 1918

1:35 Takom painted with Tamiya and weathered with oils Figure Model Cellar painted with oils

Trumpeter 1/35 280mm K5(E) Leopold Railroad gun

Another Trumpeter winner, positioned with 1/72 Dora railroad gun. It is hard to believe that the Dora was twice as big as the formidable Leopold. No building issues with this kit. Highly recommend

Amusing Hobby 1/35 Rheintochter R1

Although it did not reach operational service, the Rheintochter surface to air missile was well into its experimental stages. The development program however, was terminated towards the end of the War. The kit represents a mobile version [...]

Tamiya 1/35 Pz.Kpfw.II Ausf.F

It was time to get back to a Tamiya kit again.. I picked up this classic 1971 tooled kit last year. I wish I had built this kit when I started modelling as a kid. It’s a great starter kit OOTB. Inexpensive & easy to build. If [...]

Bison II

Ciao some pics about my Bison II by Alan; the kit was quit old and I was struggling a lot with the tracks ! In the end I realized a diorama in the desert. Crew come from different brand Tamiya and Dragon. Paolo
