Build review: Dragon 6792 / DML 6792 1/35 scale Panzerbeobachtungwagen III Ausf. F(Sd. Kfz. 143)

This is my second Dragon kit, since I was really happy with my build of the unreviewed Tiger I 131. The subject isn’t my top choice in terms of coolness, but I got the kit on sale for about $18 so I thought it’s another good kit to practice armor on.  This particular vehicle is… Continue reading Build review: Dragon 6792 / DML 6792 1/35 scale Panzerbeobachtungwagen III Ausf.

Black or white? Panther A from Meng again

It seems in the armor modeling world people uses white background for photos. So I re-shot the Panther A’s with white and see if it looks more like something that is more commonly accepted 🙂 I guess one issue is the tanks are often dark colored, so it’s a little hard to make it pop.

And now for something completely different – M1114 Up Armored HA Tractical Vehicle from Bronco

Everytime I go into a Macross building frenzy, I ended up wanting to build more non-scifi models, i.e. armor and planes, most likely due to the lure of details. I built some tanks when I was young, but I think I really have an affinity for them even after all the gunpla.I actually have an… Continue reading And now for something completely different – M1114 Up Armored HA Tractical Vehicle from Bronco
