Ukrainian BRDM-2UM KFOR, Pristina, Kosovo (Trumpeter 1:35)

This is somewhat off topic (i.e. not part of any group build) but nevertheless recent. Since I wanted to show some support to Ukrainian Europeans currently battling for freedom, I spent quite a bit of hours getting this build done. I [...]

Cold War gone hot Tamiya 1/35 Schutzenpanzer Marder

Here's another vehicle for my Cold War gone hot series. This is the 1/35th Tamiya Marder. Sadly, this old kit is the only early version Marder available, all the others being post 1985. The kit will be depicted rushing past the M48A2GA2 as [...]

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 [...]

1/24 Tamiya Fairlady 240ZG

This is actually my first 100% finished work of 1/24 cars! The rest just kinda didn't work out. Fairlady 240z is my dream car to own and I do think the ZG version is classic. However, I don't have the feel to make a glossy, clean look and [...]

Revell Leopard 1 A1A4 Weathering And Camnet

This is the (very) old mould Revell Leopard 1. There is a review of it on the Leopard Club website. Needless to say, it is a tad dated by modern standards! This was my first attempt at using a pencil for the worn metal effect, I think I [...]

Trying New Techniques On Tamiya Leopard A3/A4

I decided to try out a few new (to me at least) techniques. I'm trying to get a metallic sheen to weathered parts of the tank and equipment. I've not done this using a pencil before and I think it's far more controllable than just straight [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
