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

Matchbox Puma

if you are a purist...then look away
these were never done in 3 color hard edge splinter.....but i wanted it to be late war color that i was doing a number of German tanks and vehicles
classic model and great on the board
the old Airfix rule book lets it move nearly 80cms a turn


  1. Well, I like it. I am just getting back into WWII plastic soldiers after fourty years and am amazed to see the old kits still going - as well as some new ones. great stuff.

  2. Very nice

    I have two of these cats that have been staring at me for the better part of a decade!

    I must do them!

  3. thanks gents

    I went to an auction about 10 years ago and bought over 100 kits for not a lot of money- all Matchbox, nitto and fujimi
    most have been made but still have 4 more Pumas to build and also at least 6 humber scout cars....

    john- the old kits are still around and there are plenty of people who still buy them and one can make a reasonable model out of them- its either that or paying HUGE moeny for resin ones...which i also do

  4. Nice P-cat! I have a couple of these to build as well, but have never thought that much more about it.

    Perhaps it's time to get them out, let the rivet counters flume about the paint scheme!

  5. thanks Paul

    out with the glue and into it! LOL
