1/144 KC-135 refueling a B-2 Spirit Bomber

I uploaded a few WIP pics of this little diorama a few months ago and after languishing on the shelf for a few months, I decided to finish the build. I don't normally build anything smaller than 1/72, but these two at 1/144 were the perfect size[...]

Iwo Jima Amphibious operations

1/700 Scale This diorama is Iwo jima landing operation. Actually, the actual landing was carried out with LVT and Sherman Tank, but the LVT and sherman tank's details were very low. So I exclude them. This diorama is distant from historical fa[...]

Leyte Gulf; the Orphans of the USS Princeton.

This is my first attempt at a diorama and it's been a steep learning curve. I wanted to create a scene that captured something of the spirit of the carrier groups that fought so bravely such a long way from home in the Pacific. The 'Work In P[...]

Tamiya Miniatures German Machine Gun Crew on Maneuver in 1:35, with Diorama

Some history: This kit dates back from the mid-nineties of the last century. I actually purchased it on e-bay as I like to adopt kits from someone else's stash and then give them a second life. The kit contains five figures comprising a standa[...]

“Covering Fire!”

This is a Tamiya M113 kit I built about 5 years ago. I added a Recoilless rifle off an old Dragon Mule kit and after market accessories from Black Dog and Verlinden. The figures are from Bravo 6 (resin), and are really good. The base is MiniArt [...]

Ordnance disposal – Iraq

Two firsts for me here, a Takom kit and Meng kit. The Takom is the 1/35 'Civilian car' which comes with a terrorist and bombs for the boot, and the Meng 1/35 Ordnance Disposal Specialists (2 figures and 2 robots). Both kits were very good and ar[...]

Star Wars Snow Speeder – Battle of Hoth

.This diorama using the AMT/ERTL Star Wars Snow speeder kit has been on my ‘to do’ list for years. I always wanted to build it crashed after being inspired while watching the movie The Empire Strikes Back many years ago as a kid. The kit itself[...]
