One of my hobby friends came with the idea of doing a GB to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Kursk.
Needless to say I was keen on starting it, and I even got a new T-34/76 for the build. However, after a short run through my stash, I
Some work done to improve ESCI's old Hetzer.
Part 2 will include the painting process!
Some more work done on the old (should I say ancient) Heller Mirage IIIE kit plus an invited to the Delta party, another Heller kit that is going to get converted into an Argentine Mirage VPA "Mara" 1767

Improving and slightly correcting Revell's rendition of a late Panther Ausf. G tank.
The Revell kit is readily available, comes with a lot of extra parts (chin and chinless mantlet, two types of exhausts, extended deck crew heater, etc) and is not expensive. However the kit has a few issues, some
Ever wanted to have a model for which the readily available kits in the market where old and crude, and by the time you invested a lot of time trying to bring the kit to current standards somebody else came and released a new mold of it?.

Upgrade the Airfix/Heller 1/72 WW2 Jeep Willys kit to a proper rendition of this famous ¼ ton truck with some help of Orange 3d upgrade set and some scratch-building.

This is my Work In Progress on a Heller bf 109 rebox by an Argentinean plastic toy company called Modelex. They are known in Argentina for offering old Heller kits like their 1/72 Spitfire, Zero, Draken, an assortment of Migs and my favorite, the TF-104s. Usually available dirt cheap at
Taming Trumpeter's rendition of this often overlooked yet extremely capable Japanese Main Battle Tank.
In the previous steps of this series we improved Italeri’s Jagdtiger kit by modifying the basic kits parts and the addition of plastic sheet and mesh, then we went even further forward adding some aluminium sheet and cooper wire scratchbuilt details to our Jagdtiger scale model. This only means we
In this second installment we’ll continue detailing Italeri’s #7030 Jagdtiger model kit with aluminum sheet scratchbuilt details and a little help from the spares drawer. 226
