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)!!

Zvezda's German 105mm Howitzer with crew - W.I.P.

Good day and good week everyone!

Last weekend I bought from my local hobby store the new 105mm German Howitzers from Zvezda.

Each kit contains 1 gun with two soldiers (crew). The gun can be used either in ''fire'' mode / deployed, or in ''movement'' mode. The model can be made very easily (no glue required) and the figures are very nice and realistic (even though, a couple of more would be very handy)! Benno's forum has some photos of the kit, as it comes out the box (not assembled).
It's a simple wargames' piece, so I would like to inform rivet counters that this piece of broadcast is not for you! ;-)
I now have to buy 4 Pegasus German Trucks, to use them as trailers, and some additional figures for the guns' crews.

So, stay tuned for the photos of the whole bunch!

Counter Attack on the way!!

Good day and good week everyone!!!
Last weekend I made two stands of trees, for my small town...
The photos are showing them among different elements of my terrain pieces, in order to see how well they complement with each other.

The stands dimensions are (reference):
Base (Vinyl Tile): L: 26cm (as two Wills sheets/e.g cobblestones - pics) W: 7cm
Trees stand: L: 24cm - W: 5cm.

I hope you like them!

Out of the workshop....

Good morning everyone!!!
Being away (again) with my work, has kept me out of my workshop for a while (again)!
Too many things on my desk stand incomplete, and that is really tearing my nerves!
I have managed to finish something though, something similar to what I am working on at the time (where are you Einstein with your theory???).....:-)
In this terrain piece (two small flats), I have used some brick work (from Wills sheets) and window railings (from Faller), based on some photos I found in the web.

I hope you like them!!
