Welcome to my page!

Hello,

here I present my work. I create dioramas in the time period of World War II and everything only in the scale 1/144.
My main focus are tanks but from time to time a take a look at submarines, interesting airplanes and small ships.

NSU Springer (Sonderkraftfahrzeug 304) in 1/144 01/52

The NSU Springer (Jumper) was based on the design of the Kettenkrad. Much too expensive to be used as a one time draw away tank is was not very reliable on top.
Anyway, no very complicated forms made it easy to design. After one day I had most of the design done. So here the first pictures from the work in progress.

1/144 Mercedes leichtes Löschgruppenfahrzeug LLG

For my own collection I finished last night the painting for the Mercedes fire engine. I have the Wehrmacht version in yellow but I wanted it as an civilian one too. The Mercedes was called leichtes Löschgruppenfahrzeug LLG, today it would be a LF8; a Löschfahrzueg for 8 firemen. Besides Opel many LF 8 have been produced on the chassis of the Mercedes L1500.  For more details you can read here

the new Kettenkrad and his special trailers

Two years ago I bought several Me 262 from Trumpeter as together with the Jet fighter you found a Kettenkrad in the box. I assembled one, but I never painted it. So this autumn I got a complete box of Me 163 and there you find a VW Kübelwagen and a Kettenkrad, both need only assembly they come ready painted. So I assembled one and the Kübelwagen and was very astonished how easy it was. 
So I started designing some of the special trailers the Wehrmacht used for the Kettenkrad.
A Kettenkrad in 1/144 is already very small and fragile, but the trailers are even one step fragiler. Therefore I designed everything for the ultra frosted material, it allows me dimensions from 0.5mm. Last weekend I picked it up and here are the first pictures:

new Monster from Metal Troops in 1/144

More by accident then by planned research I found this new Monster from Metal Troops. Remember they offered some years ago the Dora, the biggest train gun and now they come again with a gun. It is a German 35.5 cm super heavy Howitzer, only six of them have been built in WWII. Most of the were used in the East.

So here some prictures from their Twitter account:
