1/35 Tamiya Jagdpanzer L/70 new tool

I built this a couple years back only to put it on the shelf as I really did not know what to do with it. FF to this year and a determined effort to reduce the shelf, here's what I came up with for this one. The kit itself was flawless in [...]

1/35 Tristar Panzer I

This is from a long time ago, perhaps as much as eleven years as I was just getting back into the hobby. I recall it being fairly fussy in assembly with large sprue attachments but good molding and a mostly complete interior. I was still [...]

Rommel visits

This is the 1/35 Tamiya Panzer III L with the Masterbox DAK figure set. A sweet, enjoyable mostly OOB build with a little scratching due to the open turret hatches, it's loosely based on the famous photo of Rommel and a crew on their [...]

Academy Tiger I with interior

This is from late 2018, the Academy Tiger I with interior. I've heard a fair amount of complaints about this kit but did not experience any major difficulties with it, I recall it being complex but not difficult. Fit was fine and it looks [...]

Italeri M-4A1 and Tamiya Cromwell

This is another older project from 2018. For me, a very large diorama, much bigger than I usually like to do, it took a long time to finish up. The old Italeri Sherman is still a good kit. This one was improved with stippled on and lightly [...]

Revellogram 1/48 B-17G

This is a build for a friend whose father was initial crew on this aircraft in WW II. An old molding that I'm sure many here are familiar with, it was a decent kit considering it's age and the manufacturing limitations of the seventies. It [...]

1/35 AFV Club M-24 Chaffe

This one dates back to 2018 when the AFV Club offering was still pretty new. The kit is supposed to give you the option of an articulating suspension but bad engineering makes this very hard to achieve; I did not invest the time needed to [...]

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 [...]

Who's tired of C-Rations?

This dates from late 2013, an idea that came to me out of the blue one day The Academy 1/35 M-18 used, it gave me a decent base and assembled well. It was upgraded with a Verlinden interior set and ModelKasten workable tracks. The interior [...]

The mouse that roared

Dragon's 1/35 Tiger II, done in 2014. I recall this kit being quite un-Dragonish as the instructions were mistake free and clear. The fit was superb, and the Magic Track links were a perfect friction fit that made assembly quite [...]
