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 use were dug up on the internet and I use and share them only as such; a reference. Whenever possible I will state the source, but unfortunately I have no idea where I found many of them anymore. The vast majority of the military images have been "living" on my harddrive for years.

Nitto P.K.A. 1/20 became Hagglunds UPI61(p)

I have been planning on this for a while, but now my P.K.A. finally became Swedish! It became a Hagglunds UPI61(p) - Utrustning Pionjär Individuell 1961 prototyp (standing for Equipment Pioneer Individual).
It was painted in Tamiya's German grey and I replaced the large box by a tank. It just did not look right. The tank is painted in Tamiya's Olive drab. Via a Swedish scalemodelling facebook group I got hold of some Swedish markings and the "4" came from the sparesbox, as did the text on the tank (a Sd.Kfz.251 stencil in 1/35).
A first coat of dark wash was applied and now I am working my way toward weathering. Since it is to depict a new vehicle/suit, damages and weathering will be kept to a minimum.
