What have I gotten myself into…

Ok, so every year when my company gives us our bonus, I choose a kit I would normally not spend the money on, a pat on the back for surviving another year (actually I love my company, so surviving is easy). In the past I have gotten 1/32 Tamiya[...]

M3A1 Half-Track – Dragon 1:35

I think pretty much anyone who builds armor wants to build a Half-track at some point and I’m no exception. This is the first Dragon kit I’ve built since getting back into the modeling game and found it pretty darn nice. I built the 3-in-1 kit, [...]

Tamiya 1/35 M40 Self-Propelled 155mm Gun.

The M40 is a fairly new release for Tamiya and it is AWESOME! This model OOB is a dream to build full of intensive detail, outstanding engineering, and excellent fit. It even includes the full firing crew figures which are some of the best I h[...]

Trumpeter 1/35 M198 155mm Towed Howitzer (Late)

This is the 1st and only stand alone cannon I ever built. I enjoy taking on different subjects and this fit the bill. This was a fairly easy, average level build appropriate for all model makers with a bit of PE bending experience. It is most[...]
