I've been very inactive on the scale modelling front, but I recently started again. I visited the buildinggroup of IPMS Dalarna and have become a member of IPMS Sweden.
I have continued doing some work on my Nordland Sd.Kfz. 250/3 and from a friend I received an Italeri Tiger 1, so that will appear here sometime soon as well.
My modelling space proved to be quite insufficient and I am working on creating a better, roomier one. The hunt is on for a tabletop for the workarea and some glasscabinets. I unpacked some of my earlier works, but was not pleased by how they resurfaced. Some are completely destroyed!
Those that read more often may have noticed that I have been posting much of my old stuff. That is merely to get all the things I did grouped together in one place, so my modellinghistory becomes visible. I plucked the texts and images from the sites I used to post my work, mainly twenot.nl and armorama.com, hence the old dates within the posts.
I have begun to go through my old builds, opening the boxes they were stored in an assessing the damage sustained during 2 moves..... and I was not pleased, to say the least.
There was some extensive damage, much of which can be fixed with varying levels of ease. Some will prove much more challenging and I fear that some are beyond repair. I'll cannibalize those and will consider them KIA.
Non of the items here are posted with any form of political meaning, content or similar. Everything is displayed with an emphasis on historical correctness, unless stated otherwise. Swastikas and SS-runes are a part of military history, as are David's stars, rising suns, stars & stripes, hamer & scyths etc. If you have a problem with that, please feel free to leave! Political correctness does not live here and I will not be held accountable for hurting any overly sensitive souls that can not handle history.
If you are interested in building scalemodels, study actual military history and the like however, you're most welcome to stay, browse, read and/or comment.
The contents of this blog are mine; the models I built, the ideas I used etc. If you want to use these, I'd appreciate it if you asked permission first and use the contents as they are intended; the making and depicting of scalemodels.
The reference pictures I used were dug up on the internet and I use them only as such. Unfortunately I have no idea where I found them anymore, but many are from German archives. These pictures have their origin still visible on them.
