Start building the base was the easy part

I will build the bares 3 times until today :joy:

Wow, that’s some really great work, super clean.

Most impressive!

That looks like one tricky project Jan, but it looks like you are whipping it into shape- its really coming along nicely!

There’s some superb intricate detailing with all these scratch building elements. It’s great watching it all develop :+1::+1:

Thank you
created another figure for the environment of the vehicle, its a converted Trumpeter figure.
He’s wearing the old gear and a SCAR, created in green stuff & apoxisculpt. The SCAR comes from the bitbox (MB)

I appreciate it alot
top the seats
I follow your activity

Spinning around with some ideas


Really great!! You don’t need to buy any kits anymore, you can build them all from scratch. :+1:

A day fighting the details, created the mounts of 2 guns and some other small parts.
the weapons are from Live Resin, accept the .50 is a part from my bit box.


I am nearly speechless - a famntastic piece of work; simply outstanding construction and animation.

Great topic. I cheer !! My model is 90% complete. Fingers crossed!


Looks great, did you use the conversion kit from Black Dog ?
Like the camouflage net, it’s that little bit more.

Yes- Black Dog.

Painting the Belgian Airborne on the move

Scratch build 1/35 figure, painted in acrylics.

Still some detail work to do.


Excellent project and build log!! The work you’ve done here is just killer(in a good way). Can’t wait to see further updates.

Great job on this guntruck. I’m always impressed with those bent rods. How did you get this perfect result?
