IJN Battleship Mikasa 1905, Hasegawa 1/700

Let me post another IJN ship, but it is much older than previous one. This is IJN battleship Mikasa, the flagship of Russo-Japanese war (1904-1905). She was designed and built by Vickers shipyard in the UK; therefore, it was technically a [...]

YAMATO "Before and After" diorama

I made a battleship YAMATO "Before and After" diorama and I am posting some pictures. The small scale (1/1250) made it somewhat difficult for me, but in general everything went well and in the end I think it turned out to be a [...]

DKM Bismarck 1/700

A couple of months ago I came back to the hobby after a long seven years without modelling anything... Since I got into model making I always wanted to build the Bismarck. 13 years ago I purchased Revell's 1/350 scale kit, back then the [...]

USS West Virginia

Ever since I got the USS West Virginia in World of Warships, I have really wanted to build a model of it. There were some fitting issues with the kit but it was a pretty fun build. The entire thing is painted with one paintbrush. This is [...]
