Living in Alaska, I guess the snow kind of gets in your blood. People own lots of toys for snow fun up here including the US Army. So when I found Firing Line's 1/35 resin/white metal/photo-etch BV-206 I ordered it right away from David J Park[...]
Last Christmas I got the Takom King Tiger kit with full interior from my wife (talk about real love, giving your old man toys for Christmas). When I opened the box, I realized that this is probably way over my skill level but as it was a gift I[...]
Hi guys, this is my IDF, Merkava 2B in 1/35 by Takom. built almost straight out of the box. colors and weathering effects by Ammo-mig (most), Tamiya, AK. An excellent model with very close to perfect parts fit. Have a great weekend everyone!
My latest kit, the Takom U.S M9 ACE (Armored Combat Earthmover) 1/35, amazing kit, really enjoyed it, a lot of parts (tracks perhaps the most difficult part of the construction, at least for me), the heavy weathering works perfect in this vehicl[...]

With the Nuremberg Toy Fair in full swing, 'tis the time for manufacturers to let us have a peek at what's coming. And Takom does not disappoint with their previews of 1/35 vehicles... The Bergepanzer 2 is an armored recovery vehicle based on t[...]
I will be starting my next build soon. It is the Takom 1/35 G6 Rhino, the 155mm mobile cannon developed by the South African Defence Force in the 1980's. As there are a few sites that show the amount of parts for this kit, I have not photographe[...]
WIP: I am busy at present converting the 1/35 Takom AML-90 kit into the South African Eland - 90 Mk5 which was based on the AML-90. Photos show some of the required mods including one of the actual vehicle as used in Rhodesia in the 1970's. One [...]
