The Empire of Japan: Type 97 Chi-Ha tank with diorama (Dragon 1:35)

This is my entry to the Empire of Japan Group Build hosted by my dear friend Louis Gardner . @lgardner The build extended over about 9 months, not because the kit was so hard but rather because I could not free-up sufficient time to finish the b[...]

Heavy Construction Container Transport Diorama

Ok guys! Here are photos of the diorama I had been working on. I am still trying to add a detail here and there. I am also trying to order some better looking figures than the ones I have on hand, whose details are not the best. But the ones I h[...]

Anna Maria Sophia Sailboat 1/100 – Scratchbuilt

Picture Frame Diorama – Loading Bay

First things, first. I'd like to thank Andreas Rousounelis for inspiring me with his many awesome Picture frame dioramas. He is a master with these kinds of dioramas. Giving this is my first try, I decided to go with another loading bay theme f[...]

1960s Retro-futuristic Moonbase

I found a really cool lunchbox on ebay a few months ago and decided to take it a little further by making a little moonbase diorama inside of it. I had one of these as a kid and was really happy to have found it. The Landers, Rovers, Space Stati[...]
