iModeler Armor

All about AFV and related military model making.

DAK Panzerjager I

Italeri Panzerjager I. Built stock with extra stowage from the spares box and the Panzer Art resin sand bag / track front armor. Building the Italeri kit really makes me appreciate Tamiya.

T-34 in 1/16 scale kit by Trumpeter

Well this was a doozy. The big 1/16 scale T-34 by Trumpeter, full detail inside in out. This build took me exactly 20 days working 7 days a week. This is a good kit, with the typical sketchy directions from Trumpeter, but mold and fit is [...]

Tammy 1/35 Jagdpanther late

Chose this since the late model JP's did not have Zimmerit so I did not have to search far and wide for an AM set. Typical Tammy engineering and fit was present throughout the model altho I did cheat and add an AM barrel as well as an RFM [...]


Mini-Art kit It is finished straight except for the wire rope which is not included in the kit. It is a well-made kit and was fun to paint.

Horch FLAK conversion

Just completed a Horch / FLAK 38 conversion project. Kits used were the Italeri trailer, Tamiya Horch, Tamiya Luftwaffe Afrika artillery figures and Tamiya 2cm FLAK. Decks were made using popsicle sticks and styrene.

T34 Advanced Squad Leader Mash Up

My local IMPS chapter is having a T34 group build. A bunch of the 1/35 Tamiya T34 kits were donated to the club from a deceased members stash. I need another kit like another hole in the head so I decided to check my stash and found a [...]

UAZ 3909 from Zvezda, 1/35. Pt. 1

Greetings to the members of the forum. This time I want to show you one of the last kits under construction. It is the UAZ 3909 van, from Zvezda, in 1/35 scale. The reality is that I was surprised by the quality of the kit, comparing it [...]

E-50 Standardpanzer (Paper Panzer) (1/72)

E-50 tank in an alternative variant design. My idea behind it was to create a slight departure from the previously known E-50/ 75 designs and incorporated elements of Panther and Panther II. I reduced the original tracks width and used [...]
