This is an 1/35 scale Andrea Miniatures U-boat conning tower kit, the forward deck and 88 deck gun was scracht built for this model. When I got this kit a lot of small pieces where missing or broken, I replace them with scrachtbuilt pieces in plastic and brass, including all the railings and "winter garden" AA gun railling area. The weathering was made using an conbination of airbrush,pastels and light wash.

This is a semiscracht built model, the chassis is from the 1/18 21st Century Toys Panther tank, the entire upper superstructure and details as well as the mufflers where scrachtbuilt in styrene plastic and some pieces on brass. This was made way before Tamiya realed their new Jagdpanther. Another factor was that since I made another diorama in 1/18 scale with the Panther and modified figures,the owner comisioned another(jagdpanther) in this scale, it would be easier for me to work in 1/16 but he would not hear about it!!!

This is a "study model" in 1/72 scale of the Albert Speer Reichschancellery in Berlin 1939, one of the main street entrance, I made this is foamboard,styrene,brass and balsa, this was going to be made in 1/35 scale as a "before and after" diorama, showing it in 1939(like in the photo) and 1945 after the capitulation. Is now framed and on display at my workshop.

1/24 scale scrachtbuilt Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper from the original TV series, I would love to have one of the special edition "studio models" made some years ago in this same sacale but the cost was to much for me, so I try and made my own, is not perfect but I like it. Is almost compleatly made in styrene plastic sheet. Is not finish yet.

This is an 1/18 scale 88 Flak gun made by 21st Century toys, a friend ask me to repaint it to make it a little more realistic and less "plastic" looking. Is painted in DAK color for a future Afrikakorps diorama 1/18 scale .....if only my friend accept 1/16 scale, everything would be much easier to do and build for me!!! The model is not finish yet, still some small details have to be painted and detailed, no modifications/aditions where made to this model, is just as it came out of the box...but the potential is there for a superdetailing project.
