I have been modelling 1/76th for many years and hope you find my kits and wargaming interesting and an enjoyable surf!
Bear with me as i get my camera abilities better.

My kits are a mixture of plastic injection, resin and white metal. plenty of local Australian resin kits but also venerable Airfix and Matchbox models too....

Mainly European WW2 which first started out with US forces, then onto UK and then a smattering of Russian- but i realised i had to have someone to compete against..... so along came the Axis kits..

Click on the pictures, they expand and provide better detail.

Hope you enjoy and thanks for all the positive comments

Favorites again- my japanese 1.76th favorites!


  1. Nice David, really good paint work, pity there is not more Japanese stuff on the market to chose from eh?

  2. thanks Al

    yes i agree about the lack of models

    these are old Fujimi kits - so are really simple to make- and they are pretty cheap to buy as well

    there are a few resin ones around- but they can get damn expensive to buy

  3. Hi David,
    I agree with Al, great paint work.

    I would say think outside the box (so to speak). M3 Stuarts and Bren Carriers as well as some Vickers light tanks were captured in some quantity during the first 6 months or so, and there are a few pictures and accounts of them being used by the Japanese.

    Why not add a platoon of these to your force, M3's would look super in Japanese Cam!

  4. Hi Paul

    thats a great idea to add some other items to the Japanese armoured force

    I have quite a few matchboz Stuarts sitting on the shelf unbuilt in the man cave

    also to add would be a couple of Panzer 1 and also sdkfz 222- there were quite a few sent to Japan in an arms exchange( not sure what Germany got back from it except supporting its tripartied arrangement in keeping the Pacific front going!!)

  5. Yep, I do know that Nationalist China used Sd.Kfz 222's purchased from Germany, so captured examples could at a guess be in Japanese ORBATs.

  6. correct Paul

    the japs re used a lot of captured gear so would be easy to say they impressed the tanks and equipment

    i could also use some M3 halftracks or M3 scout cars as well

    hope you have a great weekend
