Australian Leopard AS1 with drivers and engine compartments.

I've started yet another AS1 Leopard, only this time I am showing the exposed engine compartment - from Perfect Scale Modellbau and the drivers compartment from Leopard Workshop. Both are excellent additions and worth every penny!! The weatheri[...]

Schira DOW 3rd – PLUM 1/72

This is my first article on the site and wanted to start both with my latest finished model and an out-of-the-ordinary model. For those not familiarized with it, it represents a fighter from the anime movie The Wings of Honneamise made by Gainax[...]

How To: Weathering with pastel chalk.

Typically I weather my models using artist pastel chalk. With the chalk you can vary the depth of your weathering. For jet exhaust I used black, brown, light gray, and a touch of blue. Using multiple colors gives a nice blended look. The “tools”[...]

So far, sort’a kinda’ ok

Ok,…it’s time-out. Here’s my work in progress; a Tamiya 1/35th 38(t) E/F. I decided to stop at this point, with very light dry brushing and pinwash. As an aside, this is a great kit, easy to handle, without lots of fiddly parts, suited for my li[...]

The camo on this 110 will be black bottom and dark green RLM 72 on top side. I wanted to see if I could attack a uniform black belly side and Dark green top side from a different angel with a realistic weathering. I am not a big fan of pre and [...]

Weathering: what’s your game?

One area that many modelers either love or loath is getting some sort of used (and sometimes abused) look on their models. AFV modellers have been at the spearhead of weathering products and techniques for quite some time, at least that’s my opi[...]

HS-129 Panzerjager, heavily worn Kursk warrior.

This is an old 1/48 Esci HS-129 I'm trying some heavy wear technique's on. I scratch built an interior and gun sight based on photo's. Rescribed and riveted the airframe, and started by painting portions with Tamiya's acrylic Titanium silver. T[...]

It’s not a plane, or a ship, or …

I have a lot of modeling vices that seem to have no bounds on time and money, such as building planes, ships, armor, and the occasional car. In addition to this, my dad got me interested in model trains many years ago. Now that I am retired, I[...]
