On the bench #5

I don’t know what happened but it’s already the end of November and in a few days it’s only a month until Christmas?! This year went quick – that’s for sure! The last couple of weeks I’ve been planning what to do next year in modelling. What projects to undertake and which group builds to join, and I think I’ve committed to more than I’d planned to in both departments… Projects and...

Schwerer Gustav railway gun

Yes, I’ve gone and done it. I’ve bought the Hobby Boss Dora #82911 1/72 railway gun and it’s going to be built as the¬†Schwerer Gustav. I’ve been looking at this model, and the 1/35 scale version, since the beginning of the summer almost every day.

I will add the E-50...

But all these tanks are fictional so how, why and what to base it on then?

Incoming models for review 12.11.18

Incoming kits, models and products for review – now that the postal service seems to work again… After having major issues with Post Nord in Sweden things now seems to work again, but it required a lot of registered complaints and legal action… The money I lost from having to pay double shipping costs on many packages that were simply returned instead of delivered was impossible to claim back. Apparently mail in 2017...
