Welcome to my page!

My main focus are tanks but from time to time a take a look at submarines, interesting airplanes and small ships.

1/144 German Fire brigade on Mercedes Benz L1500 LF8 der Feuerschutzpolizei

It is done. I finalised y work on the German Mercedes Benz L1500. In general an easy one, until I realised that the roof was a real challenge. There the surface comes with a radius, goes over into a curve and ends on the window and on the door. As I hate curves and have to live with a poor imagination, it took a while.
Now I have the Fire brigade or as it is called in German LF 8 Löschfahrzeug. The interesting point is, that you can paint it in all colours. In green for the Feuerschutzstaffeln, in dark yellow for the airfields of the Luftwaffe or in grey for the Wehrmacht. Even white is possible as the German Red Cross used some after the war.
Besides the fire engine version I created the radio version.
And a premiere for me, I get it printed in two parts, so that you can paint the interior (meaning i added the seats, and even you could place a complete crew inside.
As soon as I get the first prototypes back from Shapeways, I will update the blog and will show you some pictures.

1/144 Scammell Tank Transporter

Panzer Depot offers since last year the Scammell Tank transporter. So maybe the Scammell wrecker will come from Panzer Depot as well. Meanwhile I ordered two of them. A similar model you can buy from Graham Models and from http://arrowheadminiatures.co.uk/

and here to compare the old model from Graham Models:

German 2cm Vierlingsflak with and without side trim / German AA Flak 38

Today I finished working on something I requested for a long time. A version of the German 2cm Flak. The Wehrmacht, Luftwaffe and even the Kriegsmarine, they all used this anti-aircraft gun. You could find it from beginning to the end of the war, from Russia, via Africa to France.
There are several versions, in metal, 3D printed, but not to get them seperate. I do not wanted to buy a complete Sonderkraftfahrzeug 7 just to use the Flak. So this is over now. I created two versions of the 2 cm Flak, one with the side shelters one one without. In the near future you can buy a set of two, or each separate. Whatever you want. As everything is waiting to get printed, you have to be patient and through a look at the 3 D pictures.
