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

Australian Abrams

In 2006 Australia bought 60 refurbished Abrams
They were unloaded in Melbourne and then were to be rail freighted up to Darwin (North of Australia and about 5000km distance, its where most active defence bases are now)....
Unfortunately the weight of the tanks on the rail increased the loads to where they were over the bridge weight limits for rail up to Darwin. NO RAIL FOR YOU!
So rail was out and they were trucked up instead
