1966 Ford F-150 Custom Cab

Here’s another one for you guys. 1/25th scale Moibeus Ford F-150 built for a customer to look like his father’s farm truck. This build took around 30 hours. Enjoy!

The cheapest rust effect technique

After the previous weathering technique, I would like to show you a technique that many of you may know, but for those of you who don't, you can try it now. All you need is the desired rust colour, water, salt and an airbrush or spray [...]

Rust Effect with Chipping Medium

I'd like to share with you a water-based acrylic technique that I haven't seen on this site before and I hope it will be useful to many of you. (Don't be fooled by the my nickname or the YT channel, I am a hobby model builder and this is [...]

A34 Comet

I recently had to put all my other projects on hold. An old army friend of mine asked me if I could make an A34 Comet tank for him. As it has a time limit it's been pretty full on getting it ready for the presentation it's wanted [...]

Weathering techniques - birds

Interwar aircraft frequently sat around in the open doing very little and as a result were adopted as convenient perches by birds. The bigger the aircraft the more attractive it was. The view was excellent both for warning and spotting [...]

Schutzenpanzer Marder 1

This vehicle is going to form part of my "Cold War Gone Hot" series of diorama's. It's the old Tamiya Marder that I used in the camnet construction series. I've weathered down the original gloss tone to a more realistic matt [...]

1/35 M4A3E8 Sherman Easy Eight by Tamiya

It’s done! This is the Tamiya M4A3E8 Sherman Easy Eight (European Theater) in 1/35 scale. First of all, this is another great kit by Tamiya. There’s really no problem to build smoothly. The rubber tracks are good too. but personally [...]

1/35 Meng - Sherman Jumbo

I lost count on how many Shermans I've built. But, it was a true pleasure to build this kit. Good fits and well-designed. The movable tracks are, of course, troublesome to build. But I gotta say it paid off with a more natural and better [...]
