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

Battle for Berlin

sorry to everyone for lack of models- with a busy workload and sick son, just no time at the moment
SU 76
KV2 by the Reichstag
How cool is the beetle?
tracked 203mm howitzer
No fear of counter battery fire here!!
Nor here
Artillery- the god of war
12.7mm in anti aircraft mount- i didnt think the Luftwafer were active in May 1945 other than trying to fly out with Goreings loot!!
T34 in the rubble


  1. Nice pictures especially the beetle as you said.

  2. Ah the Soviet tactic of parade ground gun lines, still in use by the way, even with their Self Propelled Guns.

    Worth a stonk!

  3. Вторая сверху фотография,это не КВ-2,А ИС-2.С уважением Максим.

  4. The Beetle makes an absolute mockery of what we see in Hollywood doesn't it?? I mean bullets do actually go through a vehicle and anyone inside will get riddled and not magically get out and kill every baddie in sight!
    I don't want to appear patronising and dismissive of your knowledge but the luftwaffe was still active in April 1945 but of course on a very small scale. I believe its last sortie was in May '45. I read Drama Between Budapest and Vienna by Georg Maier and even at that stage of the war the Luftwaffe still managed upwards of 120 sorties a day in aid of the surrounded troops in Budapest. Sure it isn't many considering the thousands put up by the Allies but it does show that it was still an active force.
    Planes may not be your thing but Alfred Price also wrote a fine book called The Last Year of the Luftwaffe than is worth a look if you are interested. So many myths about the state of the Luftwaffe in that last year.
