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)!!

How to: make a WW1 French memorial

Hope you are all well!!!

No time for a long post - in terms of writing - plenty of things to do boys and girls.... :-)

Trust the photos (and the post's title) below are self explanatory. If not, mail me. I'll be more than happy to help you! :-)



























Have a great Tuesday night everyone!!

  5. Very nice miniature mate. I love the "petsetaki". Great thought of the bushes. Now you have found molds you are a machine in structures.

  8. I always thought that Hirstarts molds have no use in 1:72 scale but you are building some very interesting stuff with them. Keep up the good work. I would like to see more :)

  10. Great work- inspirational stuff. I can see very few French villages not having one of these in the future.

    Cheers,

  11. Once again a great piece T. You must create a city with ALL your buildings and gardens\monuments together. I'm very curious to see all of it together.

  16. Fantastic job. It seems your site is just what I am looking for. Where I live there are no hobby shops, postage is a nightmare so I don't get to do much terrain, but with your tutorials I am sure I will be able to knock a few more things up using basic stuff found around the house. I am going to but some molds for Hirst and this will be my first project as I am doing a terraced house scenario for WW2 for Bolt Action and have a corner just off the road where I wanted to put a memorial, now I can. Great job, keep up the good work.
