My photo
Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Hiding in the woods. . .

Good day everyone!

Yesterday evening I had finished painting Italeri's Zis 3 AT Gun with crew . This kit consists 2 guns (Zis 3) and 12 figures.
In this post I am showing you only one gun with its crew.
The level of sculpting is on Italeri's standards, which is one of the best in the market. A great product, in an appealing price (8 euro)!

Zis 3 was a Soviet 76.2 divisional field gun used during WW II.

I hope you like it!!

WIP HO Faller Church

Good day everyone!

After struggling to build this magnificent kit (HO #130490) from Faller (many pieces I must admit), I am uploading today a photo of what I have done so far!

I also bought some stone walls from Busch Models (HO #6014)that are appropriate for enclosing the church in a right manner.

Now I have to but some gravestones (Hornby may be the case) to put them (I can become very morbid if I want to sometimes) in the backyard of the church.

The photo may be a little blur (taken from my mobile phone), so please stick to the essence of the church and not in the pixels showing it! :-)

Hope you like it!

Faller Church

Good day to everyone!

Before continuing on my post, I would like to apologize for the current status of my blog. It seems that I have exceeded my Bandwidth margin, but it will be ''relieved'' again on the 18th of September.
So please stay calm and carry on!! :-)

I am writing today, in order to tell you that I received yesterday the Faller church I was mentioning in an earlier post. Hooray!!!
However, I have stuck in what colours I should use in order to make it realistic as possible, and blend it successfully with my other terrain pieces for my Normandy Project.

I have decided to paint the slates of the roof in Grey, with successive highlights of the same colour, but I don't know what colours to use for the building. I don't want to use grey in this part of the building too!

Could you please help me out???

Thank you all!

Vierville Battery

Hello everyone!

Today I decided to show something bigger I made a while ago, but up until yesterday it was half-done!
As you would probably have understand by the post's title, I have made a ''Made in Thanos'' version of Vierville Battery (Artillery position) in Normandy.
It is not precise to the point of historical accuracy, but I think it was worth the effort I put on that.
I hope you like it!

p.s: I may have made the terrain piece, but I lack basic elements of a proper artillery battery components. The good thing is, I now don't have any excuses to use in order to complete one!

A nice blog. . .

Good day everyone!

Today I thought I'd share a piece of one of my inspiration sources.

A fellow (Al) from NZ has created a blog, 20th Century Wargames which deals, almost every day with aspects of our hobby.
It has many many photos in each post, and it can be considered as a supplement to the legendary Plastic Soldier Review (which I think you all already know), because every time Al reviews a kit, he makes a comparison with other kits components to show you how they fit altogether.

Show us the light to the truth Al! :-)

A must-add on ''My favourite blog list''

Pegasus BT-7

Good day everyone!

While making my head decide, what I should do with the Faller church yesterday, I painted two Pegasus' BT-7, light tanks!

They are very easy to build, let aside the great work and details that come along!

Anyone interested in the 'Ostfront', should buy them!

Hope you like them!
