Two old projects finished

I have sorted out my stash and found several kits I have started time ago. Some kits were just started, others are ready for paint and there are a few I already had painted. I started to finish this project. The first I have finished was the M31 from Takom. I lost one of the light so I had to find a solution to solve this problem and with some sand bags I looks good for me.

The second kit is a Trumpeter kit, the BTM -3.

MM Russian WOII busts

The Panther ausf. A is almost finished so I will do something else. I have decided to start the two busts I have showed before. The present an unknown Russian soldier and a famous Russian pilot named Ivan Kozhedub.

I bought this 2 busts together with a third in a set from Mitches Militairy Models.

Next project 2 busts or AFV T34/12 1942


after a long period I will start something new. I had a new workroom in our new house but that one was not what I would want it to be so we decided to prepare the other room and now I’m more happy with the space. There is still more to do but my workbench is ready,

As I do like to participate in a GB because it motivates me more to finish a project I will start with participating in another GB.

But what to build, it’s has to subject that fits in Operation Citadel also known as the battle of Kursk.

I have two subjects left, the busts or the tank. But I’m not sure what I will do as I do have to finish the plane and have still some other projects on the go.

But after a new search into my stash I found another kit and I think I will start this one first.

1/48 Eduard Spitfire Mk.IXc late version

Hi folks,

still busy with finishing the ongoing projects but also thinking about what I’m going to do next. I have never build a serious plane and was thinking why not try one to build.
I don’t have plans to build more then one so I decided to go all the way with this kit.
Also in GB they celebrate 100 years RAF so I bought one of the iconic planes that the RAF used in WOII to fight against the German aggressor.


The kit is from Eduard. I never build a kit from this manufacture only aftermarket parts for other kits.

Inside the box are three sprues and one clear sprue. Also a PE sheet and a decal sheet for the stencils and a bigger one for 6 different schemes. I have to decided which one I will build.

54mm Cortoon Minitarus Caricature Winston

Last Saturday I visit the scale model show in Lingen (Germany). I bought there some kits and also two figures. One of the figures I bought is a caricature of Winston Churchill and his bulldog.

I always I started cleaning the parts and put them together. After I had cleaned the parts with 75% alcohol I started with a primer coat., This time I used Chaos Black from Citadel. When this coat had dried I did I drybrush with Pallid Wych Flesh (Citadel).

It looks a bit crazy but when the paint is on the figure you can’t see anything of this anymore 😉

1/35 Dragon Sd.kfz 7 8t halftrack

Years ago I have build the same half track from Tamiya. This kits build fast and are a bit simple, but with some paint and extra you can make a descend model.
When Trumpeter came out with there sdkfz 7’s I tried to build them but there were a lot of fitting issues and the kit is still in an unfinished state. When I was cleaning out my stash I found this kit from Dragon and thought to give it a try.

The box:

The kit start with the chassis, a very complex chassis.
