More Military Miniatures this month! Not a lot of shopping, I picked up this beast below. I have seen quite a few people making these larger builds and they look so cool. This I found on auction and managed to acquire it for £41. This should keep this model maker going for the rest of the Summer.Continue reading “Models June 2019”
Cargo vehicles are another subject that fascinates me during a war. Logistic in the warzone in general I guess. An army can only advance as fast as it resupplies. I actually know a guy who drives for the army and it is a serious undertaking. I also love flatbed trucks. No idea why! Just do! So for this military models project, I’m building the GMC 6×6 Cargo truckContinue reading “Italeri 135th Cargo Truck GMC 6X6 Step By Step Full Build”
So the first thing about the model is the size of the parts that make it a lot easier to deal with. To be honest, when this is built I have no idea where to put it as it will be pretty big.Continue reading “Apache AH-64A 148th Model By Academy Step By Step Full Build”
After having a lot of success with the £5 lightbox, I started a new little project. I have been working on a few scale models at the moment that are a little too large to photograph in the lightbox I have. So with a few bits around the house from DIY projects, I began by throwing together a quick frame for a new lightbox.Continue reading “Photographic Lightbox MK2”
So success, I have finally finished the Apache, a huge learning process, for one, now I know to lighten the base colour before adding the varnish and washes. Also, I need to add the cockpit roof earlier to avoid gaps.Continue reading “Models May 2019”
So this month I have been as sick as a dog. Battling a cold for all of. I picked up this cold and it was killing me at work. I knew I just had to get to the end of the week and I had a weeks leave. So got to my week off and I was dead. Normally if I get a cold it lasts maybe 24 hours, this thing was going on for 2+ weeks and my throat was killing me, like seriously I was dropping ibuprofen and paracetamol to the max dosage and was still fucked up.Continue reading “April 2019 – Blowing Up eBay And Being Fat”

So I thought I would give Instagram a try. Wasn’t really sure what I was going to post but thought being an Instagram Influencer sounded like a pretty good deal.Continue reading “The Meteoric Rise To Becoming An Instagram Influencer – And Other Problems”
Picked up a couple of bits this month just going to run through them quickly.
Two Messerschmitt ME 262 models.
So it’s already March 2019, Wedding Plans are starting to take shape so I can relax a bit. Turn out we are still in Winter, the recent warm snap is now just a distant memory.
So after lifting the laminate floor from the room, we knew that we wanted a wooden floor and the idea was to sand down the floorboards and varnish. Once we had a look at the boards I could see straight away a lot of paint stains, splits and the fireplace hearth. Bit of research into how much boards would cost and what boards to use, this lead me to Scandinavian Larch.Continue reading “Living Room Floor”
