Trumpeter Sd.Kfz.8 Gepanzerte with Tamiya Flak 36/37 1/35

This was a project that occupied the first six months of 2020 and was part of a remeberance group build. I'm not all that fond of doing large dioramas like this since after awhile it begins to feel like a job rather than a hobby but this [...]

Toyota TS050

Hello again folks! As promised, here is my Toyota LMP-1 prototype. This is the number 8 car, which took the pole at the 2018, 2019 and 2020 Le mans 24hr races. The car is a hybrid, powered by a 2.4l twin turbo V6, as well as two electric [...]

Tamiya 1/35 M4A3E8

My first official model.

Painting Advice Sherman Tank

I am a relative newbie at this, so I am turning to the group for advice here. I have a 1/35 Sherman. I painted it in Tamiya XF-62, olive drab. In my opinion it is too dark. Hopefully it will make a nice base coat. Here is the [...]

Oldie but Goldie: Tamiya 1/350 Bismarck

Here are some photos of my first ship built after >30 years: the classical Tamiya Bismarck. The only upgrades added to the kit were the decking and some generic DKM railing. Other departures from the kit were home made [...]

Got one more in at the last minute!

So I got TWO done this year. Tamiya 1/48 F-14A. Victory 210 USS Nimitz 1986-87. One of the fist Tomcats I ever saw. I didn't want to build AJ 200 as everyone builds that one, so I got my Cruise book out and found one that I had decals [...]

Airfix 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf-109E3

My final completion for 2021. Always fancied doing a Swiss one of these. Pretty much OOB apart from the Decals and shaving some lumps and bumps off. The armament isn't right but it's 1/72 I can't see it from a foot away. Primed with Tamiya [...]

Airfix 1/72 McDonnell Douglas Phantom FG.1Black Mike

A nostalgia build for me as it took me back to my time in Leuchars Signal Box watching the comings and goings from the base. Primed with Tamiya Nato Black and Neutral Grey. Painted with ColourCoats Night Bomber Black, Oxford Blue, Insignia [...]

Tamiya Tony

My last completed kit of 2021, here’s my 1/72 Tamiya Ki-61 Hien. This was another fantastic kit from Tamiya. I used the camo decals which worked pretty well. I do wish Tamiya provided an open canopy option since there’s pretty good [...]
